BTS Fans Are Once Again Disappointed By American News Outlets’ Coverage
K-pop became widely popular quite soon, but before that, only a couple of special websites dedicated to the genre covered the stories of K-pop stars. Now that bands such as BTS got so much recognition, big magazines like Times and Forbes write about K-pop artists. The way these magazines write about BTS does not always make their fans, who call themselves Army, happy.
Time magazine will release a special edition dedicated to BTS called TIME BTS: The K-pop Band that Conquered the World. The issue focuses on the history of BTS and their work. Apparently, the article also included a reference to Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC that made the BTS fans angry.
They expressed their disappointment saying that instead of giving credit to the work that BTS does, the article credited a group consisting of white males, that have nothing to do with either the genre or the group itself. Forbes said that the new album of the group failed, in comparison to their other hits.
The fans criticized the article saying that they did not emphasize the fact that the new album was released for Japan and not for the United States.
