It’s common for people to take advantage of big events, such as BTS concerts, to make money off of fans. So, you can easily find cheaper, unofficial merch nearby. This even includes fan-made merchandise, such as that of fansites’.

ARMYs are just relieved that the statement released by BIGHIT MUSIC was just about copyright infringement and merchandise rather than the condition of a member. They’ve come to expect the worst.

This isn’t the first time BIGHIT MUSIC released a statement regarding unofficial BTS merchandise. The company did the same ahead of BTS’s PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LAS VEGAS.
