Hackers hacked the official account of the South Korean group BTS in TikTok, to which 29.8 million users are signed. Fans of musicians called on platform developers and representatives of musicians to take action, reports NME.
Fans who visited the K-pop stars page noticed that strange videos appeared on it. The videos were not related to BTS and their work. One of them shows how a terrible hammer knocks on the synthesizer keyboard.
The BTS account in TikTok is not signed to anyone, and then it turned out that they seemed to be following pages with the nicknames o2m and 3mk_mosab.
One of the fans immediately turned to the agency BigHit Entertainment on Twitter, which represents the interests of musicians.
«Hello, we noticed that the official BTS account in TikTok was hacked. Please resolve this issue and be sure to take action. We don’t want anything to hurt them», she wrote.
«The person who hacked TikTok BTS account, know that they will sue you», another user reacted sharply.
It is no secret that the work of the megapopular South Korean group causes keen interest among fans from around the world. Some of them try to join it, sometimes choosing the most inappropriate ways to do this, many of which are simply illegal.
