Recent news in the Korean entertainment world has caused quite a stir. Some famous pop stars have been accused of using drugs, and there are rumors that some K-pop groups are involved in a drug investigation. People are sharing several ideas and theories about it online.


But, the company that represents BTS, Big Hit Music, has stepped in to say that BTS has nothing to do with any of these rumors and said they want to make it very clear that these rumors are not true. It further said that the agency will take strong action against anyone who spreads false stories about BTS, even though they haven't specifically named about the drug charges.

Big Hit Music wants to protect BTS from any harm caused by the news. BTS is a K-pop group with seven members: RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook among others. Right now, they're taking a break from performance as a group until 2025, and each member is focusing on his own project.
