What happened to Jimin? As a sideline member of BTS’s Global Citizen Fest performance, ARMY is outraged.
On Twitter, hashtags like ‘Where is Jimin,’ ‘King of stage Jimin,’ and ‘Vocal king Jimin’ quickly became popular.
BTS performed as part of the 24-hour Global Citizen Festival on September 25 in order to raise awareness about climate change, vaccination disparity, and famine. The Army, on the other hand, did not like the renowned quartet’s pre-recorded performance because one of their favorite members, Jimin, was not given the focus on stage.
After faithful fans noticed that BTS’ opening performance did not place enough emphasis on the vocalist, hashtags like ‘Where is Jimin,’ ‘King of stage Jimin,’ and ‘Vocal king Jimin’ quickly were trending on Twitter. Users on social media were quick to query why it was so tough to get the spotlight on Jimin, while also saying that it was done on purpose. Top musicians such as Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Lorde, Billie Eilish, Elton John, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Metallica, and Doja Cat were among the performers at the Global Citizen Festival.

ARMYI wonders where Jimin is.
BTS performed on songs like ‘Permission to Dance’ and their recently released chart-topping single ‘Butter’ to enchant their fans. However, the Army, which always has a bird’s-eye view of K-pop groups’ concerts, discovered that during the band’s performance of ‘Butter,’ Jimin was scarcely visible due to the fans’ inability to see him in the dark. The Army said on Twitter that this was not the first time it had happened and voiced their outrage. They were irritated that Jimin’s corner had no lighting.
BTS was most recently in the headlines when they gave a joint speech at the United Nations General Assembly on September 20 to represent their country, South Korea. South Korean President Moon Jae-in summoned BTS to the stage after they were named Envoys for Future Generations and Culture for their global impact. As the members stepped in to address the audience, a couple of works of art were brought to the stage. As they addressed world leaders, all members spoke in their native Korean.
‘Is having a large spotlight that difficult and expensive?’
BTS Army flocked to Twitter and, as usual, did not hold back in expressing their support for the squad. “Where’s Jimin @BIGHIT MUSIC @bts bighit?” one enraged fan enquired. Is this a coincidence, or is it not? Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
