Japanese TV cancels BTS appearance over shirt's A-bomb image

"We deeply apologize to those viewers who were looking forward to it".

The wildly popular superstars were due to perform on TV Asahi on Friday, but the station abruptly cancelled the show.

According to the BBC, social media images circulated recently showing band member Jimin wearing a shirt that said "Patriotism Our History Liberation Korea" with a photo of what appears to be a mushroom cloud.

TV Asahi said it had talked to the band's recording company to try to learn why Jimin wore the T-shirt.

A picture of Jimin wearing a T-shirt depicting the USA atomic bombing of Japan, which killed hundreds of thousands of people, starting being shared online.

Despite the controversy over the top, some Japanese fans expressed disappointment that the BTS performance had been cancelled.

I can never accept the act that #BTS member wore the atomic bomb T-shirts humanely.

BTS later apologised to its fans for not being able to make an appearance.

BTS's planned appearance on the Japanese music show "Music Station" has been postponed. It also shows imagery of Koreans celebrating their liberation from Japan after the bombs were dropped.

The shirt is still available for purchase online.

BTS member Jimin reportedly wore the shirt past year, on August 15, when Koreans celebrate the end of Japanese occupation in 1945.

Jimin, 23, was reportedly photographed wearing the shirt previous year on 15 August, when Koreans mark the anniversary of the end of the Japanese occupation.

BTS would be coming on the show to chat with the show's hosts and sing the Japanese version of their song "Fake Love", as well as "Idol", as promised by a promo Music Station aired at the end of its November 2 episode.

Tokyo reacted furiously in October after South Korea's top court ordered a Japanese steel giant to compensate victims of wartime forced labour programmes. "This group is making fun of the atomic bombings".
