The ḳöŕệän-language post mentioning BTS on this female singer’s YouTube channel is causing controversy on many social media platforms!
On May 21, BTS officially made a comeback with the single “Butter” and immediately achieved many impressive achievements on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, and was even certified by Guinness World Records with 5 new records in 2021. In addition, there is still a highly anticipated achievement at this week’s Billboard Hot 100.
Recently, a post on a famous ḳöŕệän community site attracted attention after mentioning the official YouTube channel of Olivia Rodrigo. More particularly, Olivia Rodrigo is the female singer who has just reached No.1 the Billboard Hot 100 with her song “good 4 u”. However, the point is that she promoted her new song with the title ḳöŕệän “A Billboard Top Song Competing With BTS”.
Many said that they had not seen a pop singer use another artist’s name to promote his/er song in ḳöŕệä. Lots of other netizens agreed with this, including ARMY’s “frustration”:
– I guess the discount cards for ice cream and car wash are still not enough to promote her song.
– She has a huge amount of support in her hometown while BTS’s streams on Spotify are constantly being filtered out. International ARMYs are arguing over this case. But things like that make our fanbase even stronger.
– The first person to bring this drama to light was fiercely attacked by fans of Olivia Rodrigo and anti-BTS people on social networks. After that, this person posted a video exposing her above promotion in ḳöŕệä. But then those attackers criticized the poster for living life to the fullest. That’s too h̾o̾r̾r̾i̾b̾l̾e ̾.
– I don’t care how she promotes her song but please don’t use our 7 boys’ names as a springboard.
– Currently, anti-BTS people are actively streaming “good 4 u” so that “Butter” doesn’t usurp the No.1 position of the other singer.
– I don’t understand why she’s promoting her song that way in ḳöŕệä while doing so well in a̾m̾e̾r̾i̾c̾a.
