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.
