The selective outrage is fun as per usual. Kpop is an industry subsidized by the government to make money and create soft power for South Korea. Super Junior and Stray Kidz performed in Saudia Arabia a few days ago. Where was the clutching of Pearls and horror at human rights violations? There was also a concert in Russia in 2018 by Got7. Where was the outrage. Human Rights violations galore No freedom of the press LGBTQ repression etc.. Jailing and murder of political opponents. Poisoning on foreign soil of journalists. Whats different about Saudia Arabia? Muslims & brown people? Again white people are not responsible for their governments but hijab wearing brown people are. Check

I think the only people who are mad are the ones that truly took a sort of message they’ve come to represent way too seriously and maybe they were thinking of the UN speech. Idk.

That said, Bts and bts brand will remain untouched so I’m sure it’ll all blow over soon and the concert will go well. Their reputation will be just fine.

Yeah the only thing I can say about this is that it's nagl bc of the UN association. If you decide to take up that mantle as a celeb, expect to be held to a certain standard. But on moral level I don't really care even if SA is a place I'd never go myself
