I remember when the news of the copyright were around, I though it was weird even the name of the fandomI have started to believe this information because..
J1min and k00k don't have a stage name to begin with.. So it is only fair that the remaining 5 have their real names as well as stage names copyrighted as well..
Since the boys themselves say they choose rooms while traveling with rock paper and scissors game.. Not by who's the elder and who's the Hyung..
And company didn't let tae and suga have streets after their names.. Not even stage names.. Because those names belong to the company.. Not even the government or any other organization..
ARMY word is copyrighted by b1gh1t.. Like come on even army word.. So why wouldn't they do that to the original names.. They are the cash cows of b1gh1t.. B1gh1t would never let them go.. Even if they file a lawsuit to get their names free.
Then a few weeks later the contract renewal was announced
And some comments in this article are interesting
Big Hit is looking to acquire another top boy group agency
6. [+36, -10] I was surprised by the reviews of former Big Hit employees... they called Big Hit the worst company in the industry...
5. [+42, -0] It does seem weird that Big Hit only has BTS when other companies have several groups.. and there's a huge drop in income when BTS goes on hiatus..
