Reporter Disrespecting BTS Member’s At Incheon Airport!

Reporter Disrespecting BTS Member’s At Incheon Airport!


The BTS group were gearing up to perform at the 64th annual Grammy Awards and were traveling to the U.S. to attend the award ceremony.

On March 28th, 5 members appeared at Incheon Airport (Jin, RM, Suga, Jimin, and V), and were heading to Las Vegas to attend the Grammy Awards and they were performing live. While ARMY happily offered a farewell at the airport, this unexpected on-site incident by a reporter caused fury among their followers.

As usual, many media, paparazzi and army’s were present at the airport to capture a glimpse of the members. However, a clip featuring a conversation between two Korean reporters made the BTS ARMY extremely angry and it went viral. 

The female reporter first said: “They did not come in full today”.

Then the male reporter replied, “That’s right, there are only five members. Focus less on RM and Suga, just pay attention to the other three members (Jin, V and Jimin)”.

This was based on the popularity of the members, as Jimin, V and Jin are the three members with a large number of ARMY.

BTS is a world-famous group that promotes peace, positivity, and togetherness through their music. ARMY did not expect them to face any kind of racism in today’s time.
