Derogatory comments were posted via Twitter, as a few of them questioned why the Asian group has actually beaten famous names in the music industry. Meantime, some comments were also addressed to the Kpop artists as a whole.

BTS, nevertheless, proudly represented the Kpop genre, including all the other Asian artists in general, regardless of what these people think of their latest achievement. In fact, the all-male group is deserving of the loud applause that even Miley Cyrus could not help but agree, Koogle reported.
