BTS unexpectedly cancels flight to Japan for live performance on 'Music Station'

(Bangtan Boys) BTS
BTS have made headlines for unexpectedly canceling their flight to Japan, where they were scheduled to perform live.

According to reports on November 8, BTS canceled their flight to Haneda Airport, Japan from Gimpo Airport, Seoul scheduled for 7:30PM KST. Though reporters and airport security guards were ready for BTS' entrance, they did not show up. Big Hit Entertainment stated, "The artist's airport schedule is only informed to media when it comes to public schedules. We ask for your understanding as we can't reveal unofficial schedules."

BTS were scheduled to perform on November 9 on Japanese music program 'Music Station', and it seems their appearance has been canceled as well. Netizens are speculating Korean artists may not appear on Japanese broadcast stations following a recent Korean Supreme Court decision that's caused tension between the two countries. However, nothing has been confirmed.

Stay tuned for updates on BTS.

The political climate has become very tense, Twice also cancelled their visit.

This ruling took place end of last month. iKON had a 2 day dome concert just 2 days ago and they didn't face any resistance! BP have a scheduled variety appearance as well. So i'm not sure if the ruling has anything to do with it..

It may just be politics because they were excited about the whole flight, they wouldn't cancel unexpectedly.

A wise decision. BTS could face protesters while in Japan because of the Supreme Court ruling

There is an article that clearly states that TV Asahi postponed their Music Station appearance due to the turmoil over the shirt that Jimin wore. That station went on to apologize for postponing their appearance. They stated they spoke with Big Hit to get clarification on the purpose of Jimin with that shirt.

Do you honestly think a memeber of BTS would wear a shirt to purposely terrorise Japanese people? He is Korean with Korean and Japanese friends. This shirt is clearly a statement of showing the painful truth of war and the break from it where Korea was liberated. This is of historical purpose and is not meant to threat or intimidate anyone. BTS, if anything, are very politically sensitive and have always advocated as respectful and encouraging members of the world. The only reason I was compelled to comment this was not because of a shirt Jimin had worn several years ago, but how ridiculously the Japanese media and tv networks have responded to this and turned it into some scapegoated misguided attack on Korean popularity and identity. The overreaching sensitivity needs to end before they push us right back into the past.

Jimin probably didn't regard it as anything more than signaling the end of the war and the liberation of korea as a result. I genuinely don't believe he had bad intent. I just wished he were a little more careful on how he wanted to delivery his message.

What I see is a Korean person celebrating the day & event that his people no longer had to be tortured, killed and raped.

Lol BTS were already cancelled before they even hopped on the flight. When you don't apologize for insulting an entire nation what do you expect? Keep it moving with things that really matter. Thank u, next.

OK. I am Japanese and I like their music but I am not ARMY. This has been a pretty big news in Japan coz nothing like this happen usually. We were shocked to see the photo of Jimin in the t-shirt because it clearly had a message. Maybe he was just young, maybe he didn’t think carefully what this t-shirt would mean to people in Japan.

Can you please try to imagine if you were an American and saw a worldwide famous idle wearing a T-shirt that has a photo of an airplane crashing in to a building in NY? And the T-shirt also had another photo of people from his country celebrating whatever it is. My question is “What would you feel? “

Just WOW.


"People from his country celebrating whatever it is".

Have you even tried to find out what that "whatever" could be? As a Canadian, I have both Japanese and Korean friends... and get shocked by how ignorant Japanese are about these salt-on-the-wounds comments... It's even more of a shock considering their 'Honne-Tatemae' culture. I guess you guys just don't know anything about it other than the fact you got hit by bombs, right? Yep, it was those damn Korean terrorists doing such a horrendous act... one man was fat the other was a little boy (child abuse alert!) carrying nuclear bombs in their backpacks and Kamikaze the cities...

I think it's only political. Unfortunately, tensions are high between Japan and Korea due to a recent Korean Supreme Court ruling. It happened recently so having Korean celebrities on a public station is going to be a very sensitive issue. BTS and Twice are very popular in Japan, so I think we'll be seeing these type of issues coming up in the next little while.

Music Station cancelled their appearance because of a t-shirt Jimin wore before, he wore a t-shirt with image of the Horoshima nuclear bombing, the whole BTS has been branded anti-Japanese, it's all over the news in Japan

It's not because of the shirt, that is a scapegoat, Japan is very mad at Korea right now, even Twice is cancelling.

I dont think its about the tshirt. This has some political reason for taking such step. If tshirt was the cause then the boys would not be topping Oricon Charts. Even TWICE is canceling their trip to Japan.

One way good, they get some time to rest and eat well. The Love Yoursef Asia tour and year end award ceremonies....too many things going on at the same time. Atleast they get couple of days off
