Netizens petitioning against IZ*ONE's appearance on KBS even more aggravated after BTS's incident with 'Music Station'

(Bangtan Boys) BTS, IZ*ONE

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. 



Korean fans believe that TV Asahi's decision to "postpone" BTS's appearance was a strictly political move, as currently, Korea and Japan are facing political friction. Fans pointed out that Jimin's political shirt - the reason their appearance on 'Music Station' was postponed - was worn almost 2 years ago by the idol. Meanwhile, last month, South Korea's court ruled that Japan must compensate Korean victims of forced wartime labor from World War Two for the unfair labor.



On the other hand, some Korean netizens still strongly feel that it is "inappropriate" for project group IZ*ONE - made up of 9 Korean members and 3 AKB48 franchise members - to appear on KBS, which is a public, national broadcasting station. Despite IZ*ONE's successful debut stage on KBS's 'Music Bank' last week, some netizens are still petitioning the girl group's promotions on the station; the government petition demanding a ban on IZ*ONE from appearing on public broadcast station programs currently has approximately 30,000 signatures. 


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'.

Something unfair happened to their group, so their solution is to inflict unfair punishment on another group. Seriously ?Why create more victims ? Completely unnecessary.

netizens are mad because it seems like Japan is being unfair to BTS for not allowing them to appear on their show so they dont want the Japanese members of IZONE to appear on their Korean broadcasting station. i understand the anger because it seems like Japan is being unfair to BTS. but really the members of IZONE did nothing wrong. they cant change their nationality. and this will be unfair for the other 9 girls in IZONE if they can't promote. people just need to understand. yes it sucks that politics is getting in the way but they cant be this way to other people

Don't netizens have anything better to do with their lives? For example fighting against climate change and collapse of ecosystems, political corruption,massive wealth gaps that destabilize societies and transfer all the power in the hands of a few? This is what these people decide to waste their limited energy on?

S.KOREANS finding 'vehicles' (BTS 'snub') to justify expressing DISLIKE of JAPAN, seems never ending.

And 'vice versa' to some extent too. It seems a never ending 'Ping Pong Ball' rally to little purpose ... ;)

IZ*ONE isn't the only group with Japanese members though? IZ*ONE is 25% Japanese (3 members) and TWICE is 33% Japanese (also 3 members). I don't understand what this has to do with them. They are just looking for someone to let out their anger on and it is PETTY. I'd understand if the J line of IZ*ONE also wore something offensive or whatever, but they're just trying to complete their debut promotions. Leave them alone!

I'm sorry but from what I know, Japan has already compensated Korea 60-70 years ago but Korea hid it and kept the money all for themselves. The documents were uncovered 50 years after the fact and Korean government was still blaming them playing the victim card. They greedily kept most of the money and only gave the victims very little money. Why are they demanding more money? so they can keep it again? Also I find it strange that while Koreans bitch about Japan, many of their artists go to Japan to promote and Japanese welcome them but if there were Japanese coming to promote in Korea, they would probably be bitching. Just because this group has many Japanese members, they are playing victim card.

I think there have been at least some tens of times when even korean performers were bashed for having made some kind of reference to Japan. Imagine what could have happened if some japanese idol did the same.

(Trolling) ... BTS Group should have done a surprise performance located on the DOKDO ISLANDS! ... ;)
And made a POINT of saying they are NOT the TAKESHIMA ISLANDS (JAPAN's 'name claim').

... But honestly, I am NOT clear that you can TRASH JAPAN concerning K-pop Group acceptance.
BIGBANG Group mostly does JAPAN DOME CONCERTS as the MAIN SOURCE of their MONEY EARNINGS.
BTS Group will SURELY get their SHARE of JAPAN MONEY from DOME CONCERTS soon enough.

A *lot* of the MONEY PROFIT is from the MALE Groups. The Female Groups earn money too ; but NOT as much.

NOT that many FEMALE Groups can 'sell out' DOME CONCERTS in JAPAN, is the reality.

Girl groups have way more bookings for smaller attendancies. They also get more CF money. Also if boygroups get banned, why shouldnt these nasty teenagers just spend their parents money on girl groups or other products? Girl groups have superior discipline anyway. They deserve way more money than those scandalous oppas. Will be a good way to teach uneducated fangirls what is right and wrong :)

And as a fan I dont really care about the industries profits.
