HYBE responds to concerns about BTS, TXT & ENHYPEN webtoons

AKP STAFF

HYBE responded to concerns by fans about BTS, TXT, and ENHYPEN's webtoons.

Just yesterday, HYBE labels unveiled plans to collaborate with Naver Webtoon for new webtoons featuring the 3 groups in 2022, and it was revealed they'd be working with online social reading platform Wattpad as well. 

Fans then expressed concern the BTS, TXT, and ENHYPEN members would come across sexual or otherwise inappropriate fanfiction on the platforms, and HYBE's collaboration with Webtoon and Wattpad would be encouraging such content. Fan fiction of idol stars has been a hot topic among netizens as some say it's sexual harassment to project the identity of a real artist or person into a piece of fiction with sexual content.

HYBE stated, "We know how ARMY feels. However, the image revealed in the business conference yesterday was simply an example for people to understand our 'Original Story' business plan." The label further assured fans the webtoon content won't worry fans. 

Naver, the company behind Webtoon and Wattpad, has not given a statement.

What are your thoughts on the fan concerns?

Good.

This isn't even the 1st webtoon. And they mentioned HYBE universes (they are obsessed with lore and bighit and belift group's all have a universe) will all have a name and be in various forms like webtoon, anime, book YEARS ago in an old corporate briefing, it's not new info. I wonder why other companies are saying they came up with that.

Also those were all visual videos. There are no avatars.

Some Aespa and SM stans (not the nice and normal ones) also need to take their meds because of the new girl group universe being revealed using graphics made ppl think that was a gg, yes the animations were extremely high quality, but it was literally just an explanation of their universe. Crimson Heart is not a girl group, it's a girl group universe name and Orignal Story.

BTS universe existed since their debut. It's not new.
