Published Categorized as Kpop

The Korean press has been trying to stir up controversy regarding BTS Jungkook and ARMY are not happy about it, not one bit.

BTS Jungkook is getting involved in two ‘controversies’ over his reactions at award shows, let us start with the first one and explain why its gaining buzz.

One netizen posted screenshots of Jungkook reacting to MAMAMOO stage at the 2019 MAMA (which happened over a month ago), the netizen claimed that Jungkook suddenly turned around and made a gesture with his face going up and down, the netizen says he’s judging the girl group and even made a ‘pretend’ throw up gesture.

Korean news outlets began to cover this post and it blew up, some netizens began criticizing Jungkook with comments like, ‘is he crazy,’ ‘it’s so easy to be a man,’ ‘why did you do this?’ and more.

The screenshot of the alleged ‘controversy’ is taken from the video below, you can clearly see that Jungkook only turned around to drink water and didn’t once make any weird gestures, it was obvious that he was enjoying MAMAMOO’s performance.

K-ARMY are heavily criticizing news outlets for trying so hard to create issues for Jungkook.

In reality, ARMY are convinced that the community post is merely trying to stir up controversy, ARMY (both national and international) are heavily criticizing Korean news outlets for trying to capitalize on a made-up controversy to hurt BTS Jungkook image who is known for being extremely polite and kind to every artist he sees.

But that is not the only made-up controversy that Jungkook had been involved in today, his reaction to actress Han Ye Seul’s look at the 34 Golden Disk Awards is reportedly getting ‘divided reactions’ from netizens. Jungkook was surprised when he saw Han Ye Seul come up on stage with a nose piercing; it was the first time a Korean actress appeared with a nose piercing of this kind on TV.

Jungkook wasn’t the only one who reacted so surprised but news outlets claim that netizens are showing divided opinions on his reaction. ARMY and the general public also reacted negatively to articles that are trying to stir up controversy regarding this.

Many stating Jungkook was only surprised like everyone else and that he wasn’t being rude and was only discussing the nose piercing with his fellow BTS members.

ARMY all around the world decided that something needs to be done, they have trended the hashtag #우리_정국이_사랑해 which means (Jungkook-we-love-you), this was meant to shower Jungkook with positive loving messages about how kind he is.

ARMY are also actively reaching out to Big Hit to report malicious comments, they’re urging Big Hit to take strict legal action against news outlets and netizens who continue to attempt to slander and harm Jungkook.

Here are some of their tweets:

  1. I think it’s time to really look at who is starting these rumours!! There are toxic fandoms out there who are so jealous of BTS and Jungkook that the only way they can beat them is by trying to bring them down, BigHit please defend BTS and turn the tables on the antis

  2. Media just want single news of anything
    Everyone reacts on that but cameras are only on the one who has pure image
    These types people are just wasteless
    Kookie really a very kind hearted person with a pure soul
