Jung Bobby, who is on trial for illegal filming and sexually assaulting singer A he dated without A’s consent, participated in producing a song to be included in BTS’s new album.
HYBE recently released the tracklists for BTS’s new album “Proof”, which is scheduled to be released on the 10th of next month. A heated debate was raised as Jung Bobby’s name was found on the tracklist.
In particular, Jung Bobby’s name appears under the 10th track “Filter” of CD2. “Filter” is Jimin’s solo song which expresses his desire to always show new and interesting sides to other people through the use of words’ diverse meanings. BTS’s fans are pouring out intense criticism, saying that BTS’s reputation is being affected badly because of this issue.
They wonder whether the song of a person in the center of controversy must be included in BTS’s new album even if it had been produced before Jung Bobby’s incident. Unfortunately, A in Jung Bobby’s incident is known to have ended her life with an extreme choice during the process of revealing damages as a victim, making this case become more serious. The controversy over the choice of song for BTS’s album is expected to continue for the time being as HYBE has yet to make an official position.
Meanwhile, Jung Bobby was famous for singing many emotional songs as a member of the band Autumn Vacation. At that trial, Jung Bobby agreed to most part of the sexual assault charge but denied the allegation of illegal filming A, claiming that he had received consent from the victim. At the moment, he still maintains the same position on the charge of illegal filming.
