Only a day ahead of the release of his solo OST debut with the single ‘With You’ from the K-drama ‘Our Blues’, Jimin of BTS was embroiled in a controversy regarding one of his apartments that the BTS singer purchased for 5.9 billion won (approximately $4.7 million) back in May 2021. It was initially revealed that Jimin had this apartment seized in January 2022 because the singer failed to make a payment for a health insurance premium that had been due.

The reports claimed that Jimin missed not one by four due premium warnings which was the reason for the foreclosure of his apartment but it seems like the property owned by Jimin was not seized after all. It was revealed by Big Hit Music, the subsidiary of HYBE that manages the activities of BTS members, that the label was responsible for the incident as they failed to inform the singer about the four seizure registrations that were sent to his apartment from the National Health Service.

Why talk about BTS Jimin’s legal issue now?

While the issue seems to have been sorted, it was also reported that the seizure of Jimin’s apartment was halted after he paid the health insurance premiums belatedly. Now fans are wondering why the issue was only brought to public attention on the same day as his OST debut. Fans could not help but connect the dots how BTS’ V (Kim Taehyung) was embroiled in fake dating controversy back in October 2021.

On the other hand, Jungkook was also embroiled in an unreasonable controversy of backdoor advertising where the ‘Still With You’ singer was seen wearing outfits from his brother's clothing brand Six6uys on a few occasions. Now as Jimin is also called out publicly for an incident that took place back in January while the issue had already been resolved, some fans are blaming HYBE and others are blaming antis for sabotaging Jimin’s solo OST release.

‘Who paid you?’

Fans are wondering why the issue from four months ago is being reported chaotically as newer reports claim that the seizure was canceled after the BTS singer made all due payments. One fan said, “So you are reporting an event which happened in January. WHY? Let me tell you then ... because you wanna sabotage his first OST and Bangtan's comeback in June. Stop this nuisance and start behave like a professional unbiased media. Enough of this fvckery.”

One fan stated, “I’m sick of these people trying to make it look like Hybe is sabotaging Jimin’s career.. like?? Are you really that dumb?” One more fan added, “It’s not that deep honey, you really think they stay up at night trying to sabotage him? Jimin and the rest of the members are literally the cause of HYBE’s succes. Jimin’s solo being successful would only benefit HYBE.” One fan said, “Kmedia/news outlets really trying right now to sabotage and paint scandal to the tannies, Who paid you f**kers? Leave them alone.”

One fan said, “Y'all are something else. A resolved issue from months ago that jimin didn't even know ab and y'all are trying to make it a scandal on the day his ost comes out.. notice how he's breaking records while sleeping in his multimillion dollar apartment.” One fan stated, “That wasn't even newsworthy! Something personal like that shouldn't be reported at all. And to the person or people who thought it was appropriate to leak Jimin's personal financials... Shame on you!”
