Fans criticized BTS' new album for "Sex Offender's Song" record with hashtags ... Some pointed out that it was overreacting
The Korean boy group "BTS" is about to release a new album next month, and as music fans' expectations are rising, the song "Filter" is being viewed as a problem.

Released in February 2020, "Filter" is a song written by HYBE Chairman Bang Si Hyuk and singer-songwriter Bobby Chung. The problem is that Bobby Chung is being tried on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman who his lover and aspiring singer. The song listed as "hidden masterpiece" among fans has become "troublesome".

The press quickly got hot when the tracklist for the new album, which included "Filter," was released on the 10th of this month. There are many opinions that the song of the composer suspected of having sex crimes should not be re-recorded. Posts with the hashtag "Bobby Chung_Song_No Buy" continue on SNS. A hashtag made by ARMY (a fan of "BTS") who doesn't listen to or buy songs made by Bobby Chung, criticizes HYBE of the management office who decided this. The hashtag created by ARMY (a fan of "BTS") who doesn't listen to or buy songs made by Bobby Chung criticizes HYBE, the agency that decided to do so. Bobby Chung is also involved in BTS' Answer: Love Yourself, Home, and Love Maze.

Some fans have boycotted the song, saying, "I don't want to listen to his songs at concerts", "Fans from junior groups are watching" and "HYBE, who condones Bobby Chung's crimes, is giving up on female fans?"

"Filter" is not a new song, but a song released before Bobby Chung was controversial, and some fans point out that it is an overreaction even though it is still being serviced on the music site.

However, criticism of members seems inevitable. This new album is a 3-disc set, and "Filter" will be on the second album, but the management office announced that these songs were selected by the members themselves. BTS has so far conveyed the message of opposition to discrimination and violence through music and content. After apologizing for the fact that the lyrics they wrote at the time of debut were misogynistic, they learned about feminism and increased their sensitivity to human rights. They fixed the lyrics that were problematic for performances, or didn't sing them from the beginning. However, even after Bobby Chung's allegations were revealed, they faced a crisis of questioning the integrity of his actions by deciding to re-record his songs on a new album.

No position on the management office side has yet come out in this regard.
