BTS members must follow a regulation issued by their agency, in large part to protect their safety.
BigHit, now HYBE, is the agency that BTS belongs to. This is one of the millionaire companies in South Korea after the worldwide success of the South Korean band. Since its official debut in 2013, the boyband has gone international at breakneck speed and has allowed half the world to already know what the music of South Korea is.
Today BTS is the most famous K-pop band in the world and their music reaches the most remote territories. While the seven members are completely free to get involved in the composition and creation of their music, there are times when their management rejected their songs. Not only that, it has also imposed a regulation on them that they must strictly follow. Here we tell you 5 things that BTS guys are forbidden to do.
NO PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN WITH FANS
BTS must follow certain rules of their agency, this for security purposes, for example, you cannot take pictures with fans and you will rarely see the image of a Korean idol posing with some random girl.
CANNOT ACCEPT GIFTS FROM ARMY
The BTS singers have around 200 bodyguards at their service for their safety. On this point, his artistic agency has taken strong measures that the members must follow. One of the things they are prohibited from doing is accepting gifts from ARMY, this is due to security concerns, as they could be the target of an attack.
YOU MAY NOT MAKE A LOOK CHANGE WITHOUT THE AUTHORIZATION OF YOUR AGENCY
Korean idols cannot get a makeover without permission from their agency. However, Jin broke the rules and decided to cut and paint his hair himself.
CANNOT BE TATTOOS
Another rule is tattoos. South Korea has a very present judgment about the art of tattooing, even in order to open a business you must have a medical license. Music or television artists often hide them with makeup in performances. However, Jungkook has broken these prejudices and fearlessly displayed his tattoos and piercings.
THEY CANNOT STREAM OR POST ANY IMAGE
The agency is very strict with copyrights, so they are not allowed to transmit or publish any image, video or audio of BTS songs or series. However, Jimin and J-Hope were responsible for not following this rule and shared some posts on social media about a webtoon and videos of the group.
