A man who set up a fake BTS meet-and-greet scam is now facing some serious legal trouble…
: A man who NEVER had the right to set up a meeting between BTS and fans is now facing legal trouble for pretending to do just that…
The Korea Times reports that a man whose last name is “Choi” has been accused of offering a company the opportunity to meet BTS, in exchange for over $500,000 dollars! According to the newspaper, the company paid Choi in installments between the months of January and March. That money was supposed to have bought the company a meeting with the K-Pop group, as well as merchandise branded with BTS’s name to be sold in China. But obviously, that didn’t happen.
This wasn’t an entirely random scam, however. Choi DID have a deal in place with BTS’s agency, Big Hit Entertainment, that allowed his company to make travel carriers and backpacks with images of the group on them. That deal apparently also granted Choi a ONE TIME promotional event for the merchandise, BUT did not grant him permission to set up other meetings with BTS.
As for Choi’s motive? Prosecutors in the case are arguing that Choi was 2 billion won in debt, and part of his agreement with Big Hit Entertainment was to pay them 330 million won monthly for royalties from the merchandise. So basically, Choi needed more money to keep up with the royalty payments, and that’s when he came up with the whole BTS meet-and-greet scam. You’ve seriously gotta wonder how this guy actually thought he was gonna get away with this, considering the fact that he was NEVER gonna be able to deliver on the whole BTS meet-and-greet he’d promised.
On a lighter note, BTS isn’t letting this drama get them down and they are gearing up to release their new album, called “Love Yourself” in September. The band also released a highlight reel for their “Love Yourself” video. Check it out…
