Auction of BTS Jimin's unwashed outfit canceled

AKP STAFF

The auction of BTS Jimin's unwashed outfit has been canceled.

As previously reported, Jimin's hanbok style suit designed by Kim Rieul during BTS' performance of "Idol" at Gyeongbokgung Palace on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' was set to be sold in auction starting at 5 million Won ($4,480 USD). However, ARMY were upset when they found out the outfit would be sold unwashed, but Myart Auction confirmed, "It was left unwashed after the performance and will be sold with Jimin's body odor intact."

On April 22, Myart Auction stated the auction had been canceled, explaining Kim Rieul had been producing his hanbok suits for 5 years and this was the first time he attempted to sell one through an auction. The company stated, "He felt burdened as it was being seen as a commercial appearance. For this reason, we decided to cancel the auction after much consideration because we agreed with the designer."

What are your thoughts on the situation?

✊ ARMY 🙇‍♀️ Respect! [LOL]


If it wasn't about "commercialism," why did he decide to auction THAT outfit, unwashed even? Why didn't he allow BTS to obtain them in first place? He would have created a tremendous demand for his designs -- instead of feeding a fetish for a used sweaty one. Too bad he damaged his brand.

I'm so mad at Jimin solos who don't respect him as a human being.

He or BH never agreed to auctioning of his unwashed outfit, the designer didn't want to sell the outfits to BH but had nothing against profiting off it through his auction!!!

Solos defending him are nuts.
