the stuff bts has done isn't really problematic in korea. i suppose the weird overtly sexual stuff from rapmon could do it if it happened again now but its so old & most people don't know about it. bts have a lot of goodwill for increasing korea's pr/soft power and, as fucked up as it is, all being from korea. no foreign members gets them a lot of goodwill as well.
