Back on November 8, TV Asahi's 'Music Station', abruptly "postponed" BTS's scheduled appearance on the popular music program, forcing Big Hit Entertainment to cancel BTS's flight to Japan on the same day and disappointing a huge crowd of fans who gathered at the airport to see the boys.
Now, after BTS's incident with 'Music Station', these netizens are more aggravated than ever regarding IZ*ONE's ongoing, active promotions in Korea.
These netizens vented their frustration on online communities by posting that "IZ*ONE get to go on KBS tomorrow, while BTS get cancelled abruptly one day before their appearance on 'Music Station'", "BTS can't even go on a Japanese music show, but IZ*ONE just won #1 on a Korean music show", and more.
Agreeing comments included, "I suddenly don't want to see IZ*ONE's faces", "Can't stand Mnet and CJ right now, just look at what they're doing", "That's messed up", "Mnet has got to feel at least some guilt right now", "Sorry IZ*ONE, I didn't really dislike you guys or anything before but now this is making me angry", "Can they just please ban IZ*ONE from KBS", etc.
However, not all netizens are supporting the above claims, as some argued, "BTS's issue has nothing to do with IZ*ONE, don't try to make up these kinds of connections", "Keep BTS and IZ*ONE separate", "It's true that BTS getting cancelled sucks but it's not like it's IZ*ONE's fault", and such.
Meanwhile, IZ*ONE took home their first win since debut with "La Vie en Rose" on the November 8 broadcast of 'M! Countdown'.
