A Japanese TV network cancelled all the scheduled shows of K-Pop boy band BTS after one of the members, Jimin, sported a T-shirt which commemorated the liberation of Korea from Japanese rule in 1945 with an image of a mushroom cloud over Hiroshima as the background.
A disappointed fan who posted a picture of the shirt on Twitter said, "Can never accept the act that #BTS member wore the atomic bomb T-shirts humanely. The problem is not the relation between Japan and Korea. It's just humanity."
"That part was not included to mock Japan. It was simply added to show the truth and the process of how the liberation of Korea came about when Japan surrendered after the atomic bombs," said Lee, as reported by Sputnik.
