MBC's 'Tomorrow' responds to accusations drama used BTS' names & birthdays for deceased characters

AKP STAFF

MBC's 'Tomorrow' has responded to accusations the drama used BTS' names and birthdays for deceased characters.

The controversy began when 'Tomorrow' aired its 7th episode on April 22. A character wrote names on a form titled "Registry of the Entering Dead" for names of the deceased, which seemed to feature the same names and birthdays of the BTS members. 

On May 17, a rep from the drama explained the birthdays were simply a coincidence, and there was no intention to disrespect BTS. The 'Tomorrow' rep stated, "They're just a combination of numbers, and there was no intention behind them."

Netizens commented, "Do you think using 2 names and birthdays of 4 BTS members is a coincidence," "We need an explanation and official apology," and "This is ridiculous and extremely disturbing."

What's your thought on the controversy?

Not the whole BTS, just the two members. Why is this article so incomplete af? What are you hiding


They used "Kim Taehyung" (V's real name) and his Birthday Dec 30 (just changed the year to 1971)


Then Jungkook's exact Birthday Sep 1 1997. but the name was different.

Generally, I do not take this type of news seriously, but as they say, more than 2 coincidences is already something on purpose, there are too many coincidences for it to be something random.
