Big Hit Music states that BTS did not receive an invitation to president-elect Yoon Seok Yeol's inauguration ceremony


A representative of Big Hit Music has stepped up to address the rumors that BTS will be performing at South Korean president-elect Yoon Seok Yeol's inauguration ceremony

According to Big Hit Music, "The agency also found out about this through the news reports. [BTS] have not received any form of invitation that we know of yet." 

Earlier this week, former congressman Park Joo Sun, serving as a chair of the president-elect's inaugural ceremony preparations, was asked during a radio program, "Will BTS perform at the ceremony?". To this, Park Joo Sun remarked, "We are discussing it." 

Meanwhile, Yoon Seok Yeol's inauguration ceremony will take place on May 10.

Fair warning this is a long one, scroll on in peace I just need to let my rant out: For anyone who is just catching up here is the timeline: some guy from the new presidential committee visits HYBE. Commentators here ran rampant crying foul that HYBE has become political, shady, Boo BTS. While ignoring the whole history of South Korea and their famed soft power. Then allkpop bust out some articles that it will be about BTS exemption and you know the K-pop crew absolutely lost their minds. Never mind they shortly released an article after that saying that the previous article is not true. Damage was done, and the haters don’t care. Next day, another article comes out about the same guy visiting other big name K-pop companies and *crickets*. No where near the amount of downvotes most of the comments complaining of why YG wasn’t invited. Now here we are bringing up the fiery topic of exemption through the use of polls. For those that actually read the article which if you read the comments you’ll know you’re a rare one, the high majority of Koreans are okay with a music act being exempt so long as they meet the criteria that the country agrees upon. That’s it. Now once again in the comments people are racking the upvotes by saying eff this Korean poll I don’t care BTS must serve or all the people of Korea will hate them and they’ll lose all respect. International no one cares. South Korea no one cares. I’m an ARMY and I don’t care (I’ll respect either way) what I do care about is how none of the comments in here are from fans of the group, they are all just more concerned about their damn oppas who already served and think they should have been exempted so they’re upset anytime allkpop breathes about it. And allkpop milking something that hasn’t truly been updated on in months just for views and comments. Hit me with the downvotes so I can join my fellow ARMY in the negatives 😂 this the true hypocrisy of this stupid site. I hate it here sometimes.
