so there is political tension between the countries, twice cancel their schedules in japan bc of that but this specific issue is coz of a picture from last year of jimin wearing a shirt that other idols also wore (and on national television no less, right, jooheon?) and no-one made a big deal out of it (as they shouldn't coz it's not). until now and only with jimin. sure okay.

That shirt is bullshit. It's directly celebrating the innocent people obliterated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Why the fuck would anyone want to wear that.
