    armys are trying to stop bts stylists from giving Jhope braids in their new MIC DROP MV (japanese vers.)


    so they've emailed Bighit explaining that it is cultural appropriation and how big of a controversy itll cause
    but bts shot the video today apparently

    Remember the whole controversy with KAI and his dreads in KO KO BOP?

    how big of an issue do you think this is going to be?

    do you think it'll start another fanwar?

    or will bighit avoid it?

    okay we all know it's not going to be as big as Jackson's dreads debacle
    but just... why?

    I see nothing wrong with a person of any race having braids
    But kpop fans in general are petty ppl + are very touchy when it comes to this cultural appropriation stuff so I can already imagine the mess that this is going to cause
    Aye ye ye:sweatr:

    Imo cultural appropiation is dumb and this is coming from a black person. So if someone of a different race wears braids, wtf you want them to do?? Go to the nearest group of black people and thank their ancestors or something??? And Im pretty sure braids have been around many cultures over time.:annoyedr:Like I read a news story of a white female getting taunted at school because she had two braids in her hair. TWOOO!! :angryr:Im so conflicted with this because I feel people should wear what they want to wear but at the same time I dont want them to get hate.

    I feel like everyone's been doing braids or dreads in kpop in recent years... Jackson, Lay, Taeyang, Zico, GD, Kai, Winwin, BI, Bobby, Jay Park, Dara, Moonbyul, One etc etc etc... and yet it's only a select few that gets backlash... Makes it seem less about the issue and more about something else
    :sweatr:
    Anyway we'll see what they'll do with the MV...

    This is exactly how I feel, like if he wants to do it then I fully encourage him but at the same time - is the hate worth it? Idols go through enough as is, J-Hope has always been a very happy member on screen, I would hope this would not affect him ...

    I could care less who wear braids, but I like J-Hope's silky looking hair for him...
