Big Bang fans caused an uproar and are demanding BTS to apologize after the seven-member boy band allegedly copied T.O.P.'s solo stage concept. BTS faces their latest plagiarism controversy after they allegedly ripped off the No Signal screens prominent in Big Bang's T.O.P.'s solo performances when the septet performed Wednesday at "The 6th GAON Chart Music Awards."

The Korean V.I.P.s are expressing outrage on social media and even calling out for an apology by trending the hashtag #No_Signal_Please apologize. "Big Bang was first to apply 'no signal' into their performance. You have to accept the truth," allkpop quoted an enraged V.I.P. as saying.

The Bangtan Boys started off their performances of "Save Me" and "Blood, Sweat & Tears" during the recent music event with the controversial No Signals screen as a backdrop. Fans of the YG boy group quickly staked claims that the stage setup was taken off from T.O.P.'s stage concept during his solo performances.

The latest allegations charged up a heated debate between V.I.P.s and the septet's fans known as ARMYs. V.I.P.s accused the members of the Big Hit Entertainment boy band last year of copying the "Fantastic Baby" singers' fashion styles.

The ARMYs had their plates full as Shinee's fans ShaWols and EXO's fans EXOtics also accused BTS of copying concepts from the SM idol groups. The septet's 22-year-old rapper-songwriter Rap Monster owned up to lifting a line from someone else and then using it on Primary's song "U" where he was the featured artist. "Whenever a line leaves an impression on me, I write the line down in my memo," wrote Rap Monster on Twitter in 2015, as translated by Koreaboo.

"Most become forgotten over time, but after being pointed out, I realize I subconsciously made a mistake," he admitted. "I focused on simply writing the song without paying attention to finding out the true sources for my lines. Everything is my fault and I realize that the original creator of the quotes must feel very offended."
