Chinese Embassy officials deny ban on BTS merchandise

AKP STAFF

Chinese Embassy officials have denied any ban on BTS merchandise.

Last week, Chinese customs were reported to be blocking BTS merchandise due to an alleged pro-Hong Kong message, Chinese logistics companies were said to have stopped delivering goods featuring the Big Hit Entertainment group. The allegations have caused a stir among BTS fans and Chinese netizens, and the officials from the Chinese Embassy to South Korea have now denied reports of a ban on imports of BTS goods to China.

Official Jang Ha Sung announced on October 21 that he began speaking about the issue with high-ranking Chinese officials after the rumored ban made headlines. He's now confirmed there's no official ban imposed against BTS merchandise, and Jang Ha Sung stated Chinese shipping companies have not stopped delivering BTS goods. 

A China-Korea goods export and import service company that previously stated they would not deliver BTS goods has now deleted their post as well. 

Stay tuned for updates on the issue.
