    So, Jimin wore a t-shirt celebrating the called Korean National Libertation Day from Japan, a t-shirt which supported the american atomic nuclear against Japan during the 2nd World War, with words that in theory were pro-Korean freedom, such as "libertation" and "patriotism".
    The news already arrived in Japan, and the reactions aren't good:


    (Source: Girls Channel, Record China)

    1. [+9,032, -36] I’m disgusted with many Korean people because things like this exist.

    2. [+5,626, -31] Don’t come to Japan ever again

    3. [+5,700, -26] Disgusting

    4. [+5,205, -40] He’s seriously ugly huh

    5. [+4,852, -39] Ugly

    6. [+3,861, -31] He’s ugly

    7. [+3,566, -39] Enough already. Ban all Korean people from entering the country.

    8. [+3,548, -20] Please do not come to Japan.

    9. [+2,759, -18] They’ve done it again

    10. [+2,643, -33] Isn’t he uglier than your average person walking around wwww

    11. [+2,306, -26] He looked like a middle-aged lady on the topic picture

    12. [+2,100, -22] Terrible

    13. [+2,051, -13] I’m shocked that such a t-shirt exists

    14. [+1,317, -12] Scary

    15. [+982, -31] Isn’t this an old story?

    16. [+839, -18] His nose and eyes look like a mushroom cloud

    17. [+724, -76] Why is something from last year coming up now?

    18. [+340, -10] Don’t step a foot on Japanese land!

    19. [+271, -4] Because he’s Korean it seems like it was on purpose huh

    20. [+381, -12] He’s an idol with this face? Disgusting!

    21. [+199, -2] BTS is famous for being anti-Japanese

    Here is the picture of Jimin wearing the t-shirt: IMG_20181018_133759.jpg

    So, some people are saying that he might not know the meaning behind this t-shirt, and that he was just celebrating this day that is so important for Koreans, while others are just bashing him for this and thinking that he is really stupid and should be cancelled as soon as possible, considering that the shirt mainly shows support for an atomic bomb attack.
    What do u guys think?

    It wasn't right of him to do that, but I think the netizens could have handled the situation better

    I think it was a bad move. His stylist probably picked it out but somebody should have stopped and took a look at the shirt and questioned if it was a good idea.

    Also I can understand celebrating liberation but why the bombing? If they didn't have the pictures on the shirt it would have been fine. Why would they even make the shirt with it?

    American education taught that the atomic bomb was "necessary" and was "unavoidable"... I don't know if Korean education teaches the same thing. I myself dont align with this thinking and Jimin should have been more cautious with what he's wearing considering some fashion can be controversial. :/

    Kind of reminds me of these two high school exchange students in our school before. The guy was from Korea and the girl was from Japan. They ended up dating but broke up because of an argument over Dokdo/Takeshima. Like those ones from the Motherland are really Nationalistic over these things... while I'm over here drinking my PSL from Starbucks :excitedr::excitedr::excitedr:

    He messed up. Like whoever picked that shirt made a big mistake. Wearing a picture of something that killed hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians...how ignorant and disrespectful can you be.
    It’s fine celebrating Korean liberation. But not this. Jimin may not have known what was on it but you can’t always make that excuse when someone wears something controversial.

    Omg Jimin, this can cancelled their Japan comback, I mean people will cancelled BTS. I hope he doesn't mean it and be more careful next time because no matter what they are public figure. People are watching and things like this are very sensitive.

    Btw the comments are very harsh, like saying he is ugly etc Omg wtf people, like chill why do they bring something like face into this. I hope Jimin don't take it too deep comments like that

    Even if it was necessary it doesn't mean that you get to celebrate it as if Japanese deserve it
    Winners write history.

    Exactly. Like I get that Korea has an ugly history with Japan but as a public figure that influences a lot of persons he should be more careful with what he wears especially when you make a shit ton of money out of japanese fans.
