1. [+6,630, -35] BTS said what the truth and that's that. It doesn't matter what the Chinese say, pay no more mind to them. Why do the Chinese kick up such a fuss even when we speak the truth? We don't need the Chinese fans. Let them disappear. How dare you mess with BTS like this? Everyone in the world hates China, let them disappear from the earth. BTS fighting.

2. [+3,594, -12] They were the enemy at the time... so what's so wrong about that? The biggest threat to our country is China, just look at how they think they can treat us like we're their property.

3. [+2,480, -6] What do the Chinese expect? For BTS to remember the sacrifices made in the name of their communism?

4. [+1,299, -9] The entire world is laughing at how barbaric the Chinese are

5. [+868, -5] All China ever knows how to do is get angry even when the truth is spoken ㅎ

6. [+639, -1] BTS is a South Korean group so of course they're going to say that... China, the country you helped is North Korea

7. [+355, -0] The Chinese are so petty minded ㅋㅋㅋ BTS is Korean and the Korean war is a war that is a part of our history. China helped the North at the time, not the South. This is fact. It's unfair to ignore the truth and bully people in hoards like this. I hope they realize that they are just devaluing their own country by acting like this.

8. [+341, -1] ??? Am I the only one who's not understanding this? The 6.25 war was between China + North vs US + South... so why are they expecting a South Korean group to mourn the sacrifices of the Chinese soldiers? China only got involved because they knew that if the US took over the South, it would impede on their profits so they're the ones who chose to get involved and sacrifice their own soldiers so why ask us to mourn that?

9. [+334, -2] At times like this, I'm just glad that BTS is only comprised of Korean members

10. [+311, -9] I'm embarrassed of Samsung and Fila, especially of Samsung, a company that represents our country. BTS did not say anything political and these companies should realize that the problem lies with the Chinese fans who are making this out to be an issue.

1. [+1,391, -8] Maybe Kim Jong Un, Kim Il Sung, and Kim Jung Il are grateful for your contributions but not us. And please be honest with yourselves, your country only got involved because you didn't want to border a democratic country.

2. [+945, -9] Look at these smelly virus incubators barking... you do realize that the whole world is suffering because of you?

3. [+586, -4] If China had not gotten involved, we would've only lost 1/10 of the lives that we did, and both countries would've been unified

4. [+285, -6] Come on, our country gave you enough skills for you to live off of. You've only gotten as far as you have as a country thanks to all the skills the Koreans have passed on to you.

5. [+153, -0] ?? But we're the South and the country China helped is the North?? Do the Chinese not even know basic history?

1. [+810, -5] BTS has grown enough to the point where they don't need the Chinese market anymore. I'm proud of them and I hope that they don't apologize to the Chinese ever.

2. [+486, -1] The Chinese expects everyone in the world to cater to their tainted record of history or they'll get angry and boycott everything. If China's so mad, go make your own BTS. I really can't stand the Chinese at all.

3. [+386, -3] Should've listened to MacArthur when he wanted to bomb China and just unified the North and South

4. [+321, -5] This is actually quite good for BTS, it lets them weed out the Chinese fans

5. [+94, -0] Big Hit... we all know that the Chinese market is where the money's at but it's best that you just give them up. If you let yourselves get dragged around by the Chinese every time they throw a fit like this, BTS will never be able to speak freely again. Just give up the market and let BTS promote freely.

1. [+150, -1] What a joke

2. [+132, l-0] Are the Chinese all under hypnosis or something? 

3. [+113, -3] Please disappear with Japan from this earth!

4. [+23, -0] "NO CHINA" for us too

5. [+20, -0] They're the ones who chose to join the war. If it weren't for them, the North and South would've reunited.

6. [+19, -0] What sacrifice are they talking about? They're the ones who joined the North. Do they even have brain cells? Do they not see that BTS is not a North Korean group? 

7. [+16, -0] So sick of these Chinese acting up again, just shut up already

8. [+13, -0] The fact of the matter is that BTS could throw away the Chinese market and still be fine...

1. [+5,849, -9] They're crazy. The Chinese were the enemy during the Korean war, what do they expect BTS to do? To treat the US soldiers, who were our allies, like nothing to praise the Chinese? They're not even making any sense!

2. [+3,993, -11] The Japanese don't know our history, the Chinese know the wrong history... what a mess up and down...

3. [+2,343, -4] A Korean group is talking about Korean history, what exactly is the problem here?

4. [+2,150, -9] China, this is why you've become the joke of the world

5. [+1,636, -8] This is ridiculous. They can go ask a North Korean instead of asking BTS, a South Korean group, to mourn their sacrifices. Do they not know what country BTS is from?
