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."

oh_hell_n0 greenfaaunji Monday, May 22, 2017

okay i know this is old news and shit but greenfungi you bloody immature little shitty brat, you seem to have no understanding of being a true fan weather you are a VIP or not. learn to be respectful.

junxxmin Saturday, February 25, 2017

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.)

junxxmin Saturday, February 25, 2017

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.

LveKimTae junxxmin Sunday, February 26, 2017

wait what what's this abt? i didn't hear abt this

junxxmin LveKimTae Sunday, February 26, 2017

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)

LveKimTae junxxmin Sunday, February 26, 2017

wow......................not cool from the vips I honestly expected better from a mature fandom.........

mizz_faith LveKimTae Friday, March 3, 2017

unfortunately after fantastic baby, a lot of immature people became fans.

LveKimTae mizz_faith Friday, March 3, 2017

it's funny though vips claim they r the most mature fandom and they refuse to accept that there r a lot of immature fans in their fandom

mizz_faith LveKimTae Friday, March 3, 2017

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.

LveKimTae mizz_faith Friday, March 3, 2017

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

mizz_faith LveKimTae Friday, March 3, 2017

im fan of a lot of groups including BTS so i dont really understand people who bash other groups constantly, does not really make sense to me.

LveKimTae mizz_faith Friday, March 3, 2017

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?

mizz_faith LveKimTae Friday, March 3, 2017

well it would be great if that could happen, thank goodness fans are not as crazy in khiphop.

LveKimTae mizz_faith Friday, March 3, 2017

lol yeah kpop fans are crazy especially when it comes to award shows then it's literally a blood bath lol

Lunas93 Saturday, February 25, 2017



fantasticlau Saturday, February 25, 2017

Why do all these stuff keep happening to almost only BTS lol such careless people.

bangeryun94 fantasticlau Saturday, February 25, 2017

If you think about it you actually answered your question. Nothing to do with carelessness

fantasticlau bangeryun94 Thursday, March 2, 2017

?

Funky_Angel Saturday, February 25, 2017

If you still hate on BTS after this, you're not human

yu_jin Saturday, February 25, 2017

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.

clarissaxd yu_jin Sunday, February 26, 2017

omg vips having this "superiority complex" is spot on thank you! ive been trying to remember the word for it!

rinfever Friday, February 24, 2017

pfft bout time. at least that's done and over with.

LveKimTae rinfever Saturday, February 25, 2017

wait till another immature act comes up blaming BTS for "plagiarizing" cause that's vips like to do. blame other groups and fandoms especially BTS and Armys.

bangeryun94 LveKimTae Saturday, February 25, 2017

Yep, Monday will roll around and it will be something else. With well over a million comments generated because of this and the hacking BTS brand first place will be guaranteed.

LveKimTae bangeryun94 Saturday, February 25, 2017

yeah i wouldn't be surprised if another breaking news comes in related to bts and a 'controversy'

ahpeiyu Friday, February 24, 2017
