With an intention to raise awareness of climate change, vaccine inequality and famine, BTS performed as a part of the 24-hour Global Citizen Festival on September 25. However, the pre-recorded performance by the iconic quartet did not go down well with the Army after one of their favorite group members Jimin did not get the spotlight on stage.

Hashtags like ‘Where is Jimin’, ‘King of stage Jimin’ and ‘Vocal king Jimin’ were soon trending on Twitter after the loyal fans observed that the opening performance by BTS did not have enough spotlight on the singer. Social media users did not hesitate at all to ask why was it so difficult to get the spotlight on Jimin while also claiming that it was intentional. Speaking of the Global Citizen Festival, the line-up also included top musicians like Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Lorde, Billie Eilish, Elton John, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Metallica, and Doja Cat among several others.

Where is Jimin, asks ARMY

In order to enthrall their fans, BTS performed on songs like ‘Permission to Dance’, and their recently released chart-topping number ‘Butter’. However, the Army, who always keeps a birds-eye view on K-pop group’s performances, noticed that while the band performed on the song ‘Butter’, Jimin was barely visible as the fans failed to see him in the dark. The Army on Twitter claimed that this was not the first time it happened as they expressed their anger over the same. They were pissed why Jimin’s corner literally had no lights.

BTS was most recently in the news when they represented their country South Korea at the United Nations General Assembly with a joint speech on September 20. BTS was invited on stage by South Korean President Moon Jae-in as they were elected as Envoys for Future Generations and Culture due to their global impact. The session saw a couple of works of art being brought to the stage as the members walked in to address the audience. All members spoke in their native Korean as they addressed leaders of the world.

‘Is it so difficult and expensive to have a wide spotlight’

BTS Army thronged to Twitter and like always, did not shy away from extending their support to the squad. One pissed fan said, “Where's jimin   @BIGHIT_MUSIC @bts_bighit Is this a coincidence or are you doing it on purpose? This is not the first time. We want to explain this, don't you have a lighting expert?” Whereas, another equally furious fan posted, “This has happened so many times now! We can't even see JM properly cause of bad lighting, he was litreally dancing in DARK! They're a group of 7 members right? So we ask you to give proper respect to ALL 7 of them equally!!”
The next one added, “Where is Jimin ? Is it so difficult and expensive to have a wide spotlight.” Another user stated, “What are you doing? Where is Jimin? Is it too hard to move light just little to Jimin?” While, one concluded, “It is evident making Jimin dance in a dim corner is intentional. @BIGHIT_MUSIC @bts_bighit @BTS_twt knew that fans were upset and will be if this continues. The huge issue here is, THEY DON’T CARE. WHERE IS JIMIN. And why do members allow that to happen?”
