Jimin has finally spoken up about the controversy surrounding a t-shirt he wore a year ago that had a photo of the atomic bomb on it.
BTS had held the first concert of their Japanese leg tour at Tokyo Dome and it was their first official appearance since the t-shirt controversy.
After the concert finished, Jimin took time to address his Japanese fans and talk about the controversy, he said,
“I think many army from around the world were surprised and worried because of recent events. My heart hurts.”
He then opened up about their humble beginnings in Japan, he said,
“We held our first showcase at a small concert stage in Tokyo, back then we were surprised by how many Japanese army actually showed up to see us.
Before, coming to the Tokyo Dome, we went around a lot.
I don’t think I will be able to forget our first concert at the Tokyo Dome with all of you today.
I am happy to be with you army. I hope that you also feel happy seeing us too.”
