BTS members are renowned for being nice and respectful.
They also seem ready to answer fans’ and press questions. BTS can, however, often decide that a question has crossed the line and decide to close the issue. They did it with a reporter, in one instance, who asked a rude query.
A reporter once attempted to ask BTS a question about their claims of plagiarism.
BTS held a press conference in April of 2019 for their album Map of the Soul: Persona. A reporter wanted to question the group about a plagiarism allegation received by BTS for the song ‘Blood Sweat & Tears,’ which they had released three years ago, instead of concentrating on the newly released record.
According to Koreaboo, “I was curious if you guys took inspiration from other works for your previous albums outside of the latest one,” the reporter said. “Last February, there was talk that ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’ was inspired by another work. I was wondering if you could say more about that or the news reports that talked about it.”
At first, BTS seemed puzzled by the question, so RM asked, “As I understand it, you want to know what kind of artwork helped inspire our albums, especially ‘WINGS’ and ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears’? Did I understand the question correctly?”

The issue was rebuffed by Suga, of BTS.

However, Suga of BTS shot down the reporter’s question instead of providing information on where they stand on the topic. He reported that BTS’s company, Big Hit Entertainment, is handling the problem.
“As for that, our company’s legal team is talking to the photographer,” Suga answered. “I think our official position is going to be the same as that of our company. Right now, our company is investigating the matter, so I’m sure we’ll know when the results are in.
A lot of gratitude to you.
Numerous fans and onlookers sided with BTS, according to Koreaboo.
The reporter was blamed for raising a problem with an album and single released years earlier, which they perceived as an effort by the reporter to insult the creativity of BTS.
Later, the French photographer explained his stance on the matter.

As Soompi reports, after alleging BTS copied his work, photographer Bernard Faucon initially requested an apology and compensation. He later expressed, however, that he regarded the work of BTS as a tribute and not as plagiarism.
Faucon also said that his words were misinterpreted by the original newspaper that published the story, The Hankyore.
Big Hit, meanwhile, refused to admit that it was BTS plagiarism.
