NIve issues an apology to angry BTS fans after his recent interview

AKP STAFF

NIve posted an apology on his Instagram Story after his interview with Yoo Hee Yeol stirred controversy. 

On the January 8th episode of 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook', singer-songwriter NIve made a guest appearance. During the interview, Yoo Hee Yeol asked him about his collaboration with BTS' V. "Blue&Grey" is a song originally intended to be a part of V's solo mixtape, but it was released as the third track on the group's album 'Be'. V has personally shared that he wrote the song while he was going through rough times. But Yoo Hee Yeol referred NIve as an original composer of the song, and NIve did not correct him which resulted in sparking online debate.

Below is the snippet of the interview that stirred controversy. 

Shortly after the show, BTS fans pointed out him singing the song after being introduced as an original composer is disrespectful to both V and his work. Subsequently, he issued an apology on his personal Instagram which is shown below. 

What do you think of this situation?

BTS fans are literally out of control. They are ALWAYS stirring up crap towards other artists for any and no reason at all. Why are they like this? Why do they feel the need to CONSTANTLY attack other artists and even other fandoms for perceived slights or not worshipping at the feet of BTS? I like BTS but the toxic portion of their fanbase can kick rocks. They really do cast a bad shadow on the artist that they purport to support. It baffles me that BTS never bothers to put the toxic ones in check either. SMH

I mean it's great he apologized for the misunderstanding, but even as an ARMY and someone who is Tae-biased, I don't really see the huge fuss was about? I understand that he didn't correct the interviewer, but at the same time he might've not understood how it could've gotten misinterpreted or he didn't want to publically outright call out the interviewer... some people aren't comfortable with that...

I can understand why there was commotion from the misinterpretation but at the same time, he probably didn't intend it... I don't know, I just love the song, it's so beautiful ^^
