A Korean boy band who spoke at the United Nations earlier this year have been barred from a Japanese TV show after one of their members wore a T-shirt featuring a nuclear bomb. "We apologise for disappointing fans who were looking forward to this".
The global superstars were due to perform on TV Asahi on Friday, but the station abruptly cancelled the show after a photo of member Jimin wearing the shirt went viral.
A Japanese television network abruptly cancelled the appearance of the mega-hit K-Pop band BTS over a controversial T-shirt worn by one of its members, which was seen by some to celebrate the use of atomic weapons against Japan during the second world war.
"BTS will continue their efforts to connect with fans on stage and also through music". We, as a program, wanted to ask him his mentality in wearing it. The designs include a photo of Koreans celebrating liberation and a photo of an atomic bomb detonating in Japan, which contributed to Japan's surrender to the Allied forces and thereby Korea's liberation.
The furor was sparked after images surfaced on social media showing Jimin wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase "PATRIOTISM OUR HISTORY LIBERATION KOREA" repeated several times, alongside what appears to be an image of a mushroom cloud over the Japanese city of Nagasaki.
