Controversy has arisen as it is known that BTS’ new album contains a collaboration song with composer Bobby Jeong (real name Jeong Dae-wook), who is accused of illegally filming.
Big Hit Music released the track list image of the second CD of BTS’ new album ‘Proof’ on the 10th. The song in question is ‘Filter’ in number 10. ‘Filter’ is a solo song by BTS member Jimin and was released in February 2020. It was produced by Swedish composer Tom Biklund and produced by Hive Chairman Bang Si-hyuk, Bobby Jeong, and Fluorescent Boy. When this fact became known, anger erupted.
Criticisms such as ‘they should have thought about the meaning and influence of their existence’ are pouring out on various SNS. Earlier, Big Hit Music said about this album, “They respect each other’s tastes and colors, and it’s structured so that you can understand why BTS, who has been running together for 9 years, shines.” selected,” he explained.
The fact that this new album was designed to look back on the past nine years of BTS, and that even if it was unavoidable that it was included in the album before the allegation of illegal filming of Bobby Jung was reported, it was possible to directly choose whether or not to include it in the new album. In hindsight, the point is that we were able to avoid the recording of the song. That is why, among some BTS fans and the public, public opinion about the boycott of the song Bobby Jung participated in is growing stronger.
Bobby Jeong was handed over to trial in 2019 on charges of assaulting and illegally filming a woman he was dating at the time. Victim A made an extreme choice and left his name in his suicide note, and this became known, and his family sued him. Bobby Jeong was dismissed from prosecution due to insufficient evidence in January last year, but was immediately charged with assaulting another woman and illegally filming it. After a search and seizure, illegally filmed videos on Bobby Jeong’s cell phone and computer were found and the first case was dismissed. At the second trial held in March, Bobby Chung claimed that he only admitted to assault and that he had ‘obtained consent’ on the charges of illegal filming. The third trial will be held at the Seoul Western District Court at 2 pm on the 25th.
