They have even begun to use the hashtags #드라마_본명_절대반대 (absolutely oppose using real names for the drama), #세계관드라마_본명_철회해 (withdraw real names from the storyline drama), #방탕드라마_유스_제작철회해 (withdraw BTS drama ‘youth’) as a way to bring attention to this matter to the company.

On the other hand, others have no problem with the usage of the group members’ names and feel that it’s only a way to reference the character to the actor according to the BU storyline.

What are your thoughts on this? Should they be able to use BTS’s real names or not?
