Back on February 22, BTS performed "Save Me" and "Blood, Sweat & Tears" at the '6th GAON Chart Kpop Awards', becoming involved in a "copying" controversy. Claims complained that the stage consisted of similarities to a previous solo performance by T.O.P at Big Bang's concert. 


The issue became bloated to the point that Big Bang fans demanded an apology, while Big Hit Entertainment addressed the stage as outside of their responsibility

As fans began pointing out that the fault belonged to the staff of the 'GAON Chart Kpop Awards', the Gaon Chart has stepped up to issue an official apology. 


They stated,


"Hello? This is the 'GAON Chart Kpop Awards's executive office. 

We would like to make an official statement regarding the "copying" controversy involving BTS's stage at the '6th GAON Chart Kpop Awards'.

After confirming with the outside production team of the said award ceremony, the executive office has validated that the production team failed to thoroughly monitor the used video footage, and that the team further failed to adequately explain the involved footage or provide a preview of the results to BTS and their party. 

We bow our heads in apology to all those whose hearts were negatively affected by this issue. 

We are terribly sorry. 

We also thank you for your love and attention toward the 'GAON Chart Kpop Awards'. 

Thank you."

People are so... do people even learn morals these days? "VIPS don't need to apologize because there were rude armys too" or "ARMYS don't need to apologize because we didn't start it" What a loud of pretentious BS. I can't believe that people think two wrongs on both sides NEGATES an apology. How about they BOTH APOLOGIZE in accordance to how much wrong they've done? The degree of the apology might be different/ might sound different, but in the end a "We're sorry" needs to go both ways. Both fandoms sound like stuck up idiots who have too much pride to pronounce two words. What good is that pride anyway? One of the fandoms was proven wrong because of that good for nothing pride and the other is garnering hate for their own idols. Screw your pride and acknowledge what you did wrong. (And i'm saying this as a long time army. I'm glad they're more popular and in some aspects that's why other fandoms DO act wearily towards BTS, but one part of me wishes I could go back to no more dream. At least then the s***heads were quite or nonexistent.)

Looking @ the KVIPS who said BTS blame others. It's not called "blame" if the others are actually at fault now, is it? UMMMMM HUMMMMMM, thought so. Can't believe there were some KVIPS who compared BTS to imperial japan because of something GAON screwed up on... no wonder koreans are pissed, but karama's a b**** so I'll just watch them reap what they sowed. What goes around comes around.

It was on twitter they were trending a quote from a movie about imperial japan and basically calling BTS the japanese who took bb's stage like japan took korea and not only were non-fans pissed but pretty much normal korean people who saw the hashtag were too... TBH I told my grandma it was flipping hilarious how petty they got and she said they were dragging the country (esp because she was a kid during japanese rule in korea)

i love bigbang,, it used to be a mature fandom but not anymore, mainly because of new young fans. the ones that refuse to believe it are most probably immature fans themselves.

Kvips are even more worse than international vips. They have been slaughtering BTS from the day they became popular.

it's simple they're jealous that especially in the case of BTS they're rising very quickly and they're breaking records left and right. They're scared that one day their faves will be overtaken by another popular group. I only support talented artists and groups including big bang though i'm not a fan of them, i respect them because it's amazing to see them last so long in this kpop industry. I just wish other people could respect BTS, you don't need to be a fan of them but just learn to respect them. I'm not asking too much right?

so many dumb people saying "BUT ARMYS DID THIS TOO AND THIS TOO" you have no idea how this false accusations hurts bangtan's name. they're always stuck with the "plagiarism boys" tag because of the hate hashtags curated by we all know who and joined by all the other petty fandoms and now this again with the superiority complex of VIPs. For those who couldn't care less about these things and do no take track of what's happening... Bangtan will always have the reputation of copying even though it's bullshit. Those who started complaining should also clear Bangtan's name. That's the apology that Bangtan deserves!! I don't care if you don't like us ARMYs, these idiots have a responsibility to clear Bangtan's name. And now what?! Of course no one actually feels sorry because assholes have no braincells.
