More than 20 impressive performances of BTS have been removed from YouTube channels, making fans regret that hundreds of millions of views have been lost since then.
On January 29, the keyword “big hit” was trending on Twitter after ARMY realized that up to 26 BTS performance videos were quietly removed from YouTube. These stages are posted on the YouTube channel of American shows that “global groups” have participated in, such as The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show With James Corden, …
According to fan statistics, the deleted performances include “Dynamite” at the Billboard Music Awards, “DNA” at the American Music Awards, “Boy With Luv” on Britain’s Got Talent, “IDOL” on Good Morning America, and “Boy With Luv” at the Jingle Ball.
Saturday Night Live performances of “Boy With Luv” and “MIC Drop” are now missing, as are “MIC Drop”, “DNA”, “Boy With Luv”, and “Mikrokosmos” performances from New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. “Blood, Sweat & Tears”, “Fire”, “Save Me”, “Go Go”, and “I NEED U” are no longer on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
In addition, the performances of “DNA”, “FAKE LOVE”, and “Black Swan” were removed from The Late Late Show with James Corden channel, while “IDOL” and “I’m Fine” were hidden from The Tonight Show channel for a few days.
The above videos of BTS have a total of over 100 million views. Fans said that because Big Hit Entertainment did not buy the copyright of the performances to help BTS’s stage be allowed to exist on official channels, so the series of stages of 7 boys was deleted.
Some ARMY also blamed Big Hit for being stingy because the videos above helped BTS’s reputation more popular, but the company did not spend money to keep them. However, despite the outrage of fans, Big Hit has not yet made any announcement.
-BTS helped Big Hit to be as successful as it is today. So, it’s time for ARMY to stop defending them. It frustrated me to think that BTS’s iconic stages were deleted just because the company did not buy the copyright.
– Big Hit should buy those stages now, I’m starting to get angry.
– Big Hit acquired several companies but couldn’t buy BTS’s stages.
