BTS Jungkook‘s opening stage at the World Cup is causing anger. 

On the 20th, Jungkook performed at the opening ceremony of the ‘2022 World Cup‘ in Qatar and topped real-time trends on Twitter including U.S and Japan showing BTS‘ global popularity. 

Since then, various social media were bombarded with posts related to “BTS” and “Jungkook” however Japanese netizens left over 800 comments under a local media article that’s causing controversy. 

Regarding Jungkook’s solo stage at the World Cup, netizens retorted, “Jungkook was only selected as opening singer because Korea’s Hyundai is the exclusive sponsor and BTS are also Hyundai models.”

When a Jungkook article made it to the main page, netizens expressed anger and displeasure stating, “Why are artists from other countries at the top? I feel uncomfortable. Why should I be forced to see a Korean singer on the main page?”

  1. [+4,026, -139] The title seems to be written by a Japanese.. is this a Korean reporter?
  2. [+2,742. -67] Well, they should know the viewership ratings also came out thanks to Jungkook.
  3. [+1,698, -34] Jungkook’s agency isn’t even Hyundai so why is Hyundai lobbying to push Jungkook into the World Cup?? Seeing them in giggles over stories that don’t even make sense.. ugh they’ve reached the level of the Japanese.
  4. [+333, -1] Just don’t!!! Even if Toyota was the official sponsor and they put all their breaths into it, they couldn’t get their Japanese singers to the opening stage ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  5. [+157, -3] Eh? Isn’t BTS more popular than Hyundai?
  6. [+119, -2] Can they even sing an English song???
  7. [+117, -2] Looks like Qatar lobbied the request through Hyundai and they answered their call.. 
  8. [+71, -0] Their stomachs are in hurts because Korean groups are doing well overseas. 
  9. [+44, -1] Don’t the Japanese have their own auto companies too? Toyota, Honda, Mazda… why couldn’t they get them as official sponsorsㅋㅋㅋ??? 
  10. [+15, -2] Let’s get them military exemptions and have perform in Tokyoㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
