The criticism stems from the fact that Korean fans of the group took exception to the fact that the group would be celebrating their 9-year anniversary in Japan rather than Korea.

The controversy has since roiled over across social media platforms where Korean CARATS are organizing a boycott against the concert.

Below is a letter to international CARATS asking them to boycott. Korean CARATS, please RT and share our sentiments. #seventeenencoreconcertboycott

Leave the fandom? No way. Take a break from the fandom? Not even thinking about it. Boycott the encore concert? We will make it happen. #seventeenencoreconcertboycott
