During the KCON Mexico concert on March 17th, A.R.M.Ys chanted “BTS” before NCT 127 was about perform their last song of their time onstage.
The predicament during the concert portion of the festival occurred when fans were chanting “BTS” before NCT 127’s final song “LIMITLESS,” making them appear very disrespectful toward NCT 127 and their fans. As a result, the episode has been topping many K-pop discussions as of late.
BTS fans have since stated that their reason for chanting “BTS” was because they assumed that NCT 127 was about to end their stage, and that it would then be time for all artists to come out to say their final goodbyes to the audience. Fans elaborated that NCT 127 was saying goodbye, but they stated that they could not fully grasp the meaning of their words, given that fans could only understand the Spanish and English bits that could be heard.
A.R.M.Ys mentioned that they were overly excited to see BTS come out onstage once more during the final bows. They revealed that they had been surprised to find out that BTS was the first group to perform instead of the last, making them more eager to see them once again during the final bows and performances with all artists.
All in all, BTS fans have stated that they feel very sorry to NCT 127 for the misunderstanding and for chanting for BTS at the wrong time.
