BTS ARMY is ablaze following the South Korean government's decision to order an investigation against the HYBE group for alleged chart rigging practices. It's a fact that BTS has a very loyal fan following, and the ARMY can't take a word against their favorite BTS. The ARMY has also started trending "South Korea apologize to BTS" on social media.

What Happened:

According to a report by Korea JoonAng Daily, the South Korean cultural ministry received a petition to investigate why HYBE paid a blackmailer in 2017, following allegations of chart rigging practices. As per recent posts that emerged online, in 2017, an individual named Lee allegedly blackmailed HYBE over "expedient marketing strategies" during the promotion of BTS' album. At that time, the court ruled that Lee had engaged in "sajaegi marketing deal" with BigHit Entertainment.

Fans' Reaction:

These claims and reports have incensed BTS ARMY, who are demanding an apology from the South Korean government for their favorite group. One fan wrote, "There really isn't anything lower than throwing these incredible men under the bus when they are literally serving their country and can't defend themselves while they're away. SOUTH KOREA APOLOGIZE TO BTS…BTS HAVE ARMYS #BTSARMY #BTS"

Another user stated, "The fact that my boys have been successful since day 1 is making them mad. Oh, South Korea, you don't know what you're going to get. BTS karma is so real. You'll be crying. Today, We Fight. We Are With You, BTS. With BTS Till The End. BTS Have Armys. BTS Has Most Organic Success."

A third fan expressed, "Oh's a chart manipulation!! They manipulate everyone there to sing this while going out of stadium??!! SOUTH KOREA APOLOGIZE TO BTS WE ARE WITH YOU BTS… WITH BTS TILL THE END… BTS HAVE ARMYS… ARMY FOREVER BTS FOREVER… BTS HAS MOST ORGANIC SUCCESS… BTS THE KINGS #APOBANGPO."
