BTS leader irks China, worrying big brands
Big brands could withdraw from collaborating with K-pop superstars BTS.
That after the leader of the band caused an uproar in China.
RM, as he is known, made public comments on the Korean War of the 1950s.
The USA and South Korea were thus facing China and North Korea.
RM spoke of how the US and the South shared a "story of pain".
The comments sparked anger among Chinese social media users, including calling for BTS not to make any money in the country.
The company's response appeared to be quick.
Posts with Samsung BTS Special Edition phones disappeared from Chinese e-commerce sites like Tmall and JD.com.
BTS-related posts from other brands, including sportswear company FILA and automaker Hyundai, also disappeared.
It wasn't clear if the companies or anyone else removed the social media posts and the companies didn't respond to requests for comments.
The band's management company, Big Hit Entertainment, was also silent.
A stock market debut is currently being prepared on October 15th.
