When will it ever be over? Seems like it won’t be any time soon!
Earlier today, Twitter was buzzing about Dahyun from TWICE who was called out by a Japanese politician for wearing a shirt that supports comfort women. The politician demanded their upcoming appearance on one of the most prominent and popular Japanese end year shows to be canceled.
The issue went viral in Japan and his tweet attracted a lot of likes and retweets.
FYI: the picture of the shirt she wore was taken back in September 2017 and it recently came into light.
The same thing happened to BTS, although their issue is now semi-solved and the label apologized. It began when Jimin was called out for wearing a shirt with an atomic bomb photo on it, the atomic bomb which took the lives of many Japanese and Koreans back during WWII.
Fans back then said that there were other idols who also wore the same shirt Jimin wore but weren’t called out and some called this hypocritical.
MONSTA X’s Jooheon was also captured wearing the shirt. People have begun sharing the photo of him wearing it. Fans of the group told others to stop because they were only making it worse while others called out double standards between idols.
But he wasn’t the only other idol who wore the shirt; JBJ’s Hyunbin has also worn the shirt previously.
Jooheon from MonstaX and Hyunbin from JBJ also wore that shirt with the atomic bomb. Where’s their apology? Oh right, kpoppies swept it under the rug bc it doesn’t fit their anti-BTS agenda. I’m sick and tired of these hypocrites and their bs double standards. pic.twitter.com/8jcAyi8FUp

The issue is garnering a lot of attention since the relation between Korea and Japan is tense these days.
