Recently, Seo Taiji and BTS collaborated for a remake of the famous 1995 song "Come Back Home" in which a music video was also released. However, some fans showed their discontent with the video.


Seo Taiji and his representatives released an official statement on July 8, "First of all, thank you to everyone for the support of BTS' recent remake of "Come Back Home. Since the release of the music video, there has been much criticism regarding the video. We apologize for not meeting the expectations.


They continued, "Due to the nature of the remake plan with a set budget and scheduling problems, it was difficult to shoot a music video with every single artist. Despite the lack of budget, we decided to shoot a music video for every song because each artist worked extremely hard to commemorate the songs but we also thought it would be more enjoyable to provide the listeners with the original songs' memories and stories. As this project started like this, we ask you to understand that the music videos will have different personalities compared to ordinary promotion music videos."


In response to this statement, many BTS fans and netizens came to Seo Taiji's defense, "What? Did someone actually complain about the music video?", "Huh? We ARMY has no problems whatsoever...We're satisfied enough of the fact that BTS had the chance to remake and work with an artist they highly respect", "People around me aren't saying anything but I guess there are crazy people everywhere. Stop making BTS look bad", and much more.


If you haven't had a chance to see the music video, check out the clip below!

Hmmm lots of people hating on ARMY here, when it has actually been revealed that it was some old Seo Taiji fans who complained on his official Facebook (which is also where the apology was posted), because they were disappointed that neither he nor any other big stars were in the MV, and that the MV wasn't more high-budget. They haven't seen any releases from him in a long time and expected more from the MV since it's his 25th anniversary. Some had even misunderstood and thought he was making a comeback, not realizing it was a remake project... It doesn't appear like a lot of people complained tho, especially not in comparison to how many positive responses there are, so it seems a little over-kill to release a statement... (ARMYs did complain about CJ cutting out a member of the promo image, but that's unrelated)

[ARTICLE] ARMY have no complaints,they are confused by Seo Taiji's rep apologies for 'Comeback Home' MV

choi_an_ni 13 days ago

BTS was the first artist in remake project to celebrate Seo Taeji's 25th anniversary. They released "Come Back Home" on the 4th, reinterpreted with their own colors and the music video was released on the 5th. Seo Taeji nor BTS appeared in this music video and actors who aren't well known to the public appeared. Some expressed their disappointment to this and Seo Taeji's company apologized and asked for their understanding. However, this is making BTS's fans more confused. Fans who belong to fanclub ARMY are satisfied with "Come Back Home" that has the unique colors of BTS and they were already aware that BTS members would not be appearing in the music video due to their overseas tour. However, when Seo Taeji's company released such statement this made BTS fans confused and left comments like, "We have not complained about this", "BTS fans have no complaint. We're in fact honored to see them (BTS) perform together with a great senior.", "Who expressed their discontent?".

So allkpop when are you going to release an article where seo taiji's reps apologised for making an article and apology out of nothing?

Jorina RAS33 13 days ago

They probably aren't going to right away. People just like tarnishing BTS' good image and also the fandom name.

Thanks, International Army.  Thanks for bitching that Bangtan wasn't in the MV and embarrassing everybody including Big Hit and Seo Taiji.  Let's see how collabs go after this.

freysan bangeryun94 13 days ago

where did you even get that assumption? both k- and i-ARMYs did not complain.. at least check the comments for better understanding of the situation.. (._.)

bangeryun94 freysan 13 days ago

WHAT comments? They're all over the place so where would you have me go?

LveKimTae bangeryun94 13 days ago

At the start some international Armys complained that Jin wasn't included in CJ's banner and so CJ fixed it and included Jin in their banner. Which is fine, we had a right to voice abt that incident. But what's bugging me is those Jin stans are constantly complaining the unfair line distribution of Jin's and it's really getting annoying. The rest of us Armys are telling those Jin stans to stop flooding the comment section with that hashtag but they just won't listen 😕

crownheiress bangeryun94 13 days ago

I haven't read any complaints from ARMY yet and I've been on twitter ever since Billboard awards. Please lead me to it.

freysan LveKimTae 13 days ago

This whole fiasco was about the MV production, Jin's line is a whole different matter. Don't stress yourself over the fans who speak out about that because nobody gives a shit about them just like BH doesn't give a shit about Jin. I mean fans have been asking for his lines for yearssss (literally) but I don't see any changes so yeah. It's whole different issue from this one, let's not put the blame on it. ^^v

Jorina bangeryun94 13 days ago

Before commenting I wish you had done a little bit of research. It's comments like yours which just adds more to the fire. I hope you apologise for the comment you made towards I-ARMYs.

Korean Seo Taiji fans have already come forward and said it was them that complained, I thought everyone knew this by now..?

choi_an_ni GoldenIdun 13 days ago

the haters never accept it when BTS/ARMY is right, they only care about anything that can damage BTS/ARMY's name

AshleyDaUnicorn bangeryun94 13 days ago

I usually agree with you but this is an exception. Korean Seo Taiji fans were the ones to criticize the music video. Most international ARMY's, like myself, have no problem with the fact that BTS is not in it. I find the music video very refreshing and artistic.

bangeryun94 choi_an_ni 12 days ago

Are you seriously calling me a hater? LMAO.

bangeryun94 12 days ago

My apologies to the I-ARMY who politely told me I had made a mistake.

GoldenIdun bangeryun94 12 days ago

I mean the whole thing was confusing, and all the news sites just made it worse by assuming the apology was because of BTS fans... You're not the only ARMY who believed what AKP, Soompi etc. were reporting 😊 It's fully understandable!

MsArchetype bangeryun94 12 days ago

Guess someone didn't read the full article for the comments that ARMY made.

bangeryun94 MsArchetype 12 days ago

Guess again!
