BTS — also known as the Bangtan Boys — had recently conducted their Japanese online showcase to promote their new Japan album Map Of The Soul: 7 ~The Journey~, which is likely to be released in August this year.
In the intro VCR, fans noticed that BTS member J-Hope was nowhere to be seen in the video, featuring only six of the members.
for those who may be confused about why everyone is talking about hoseok and the VCR:

BTS fans were shocked how Big Hit Entertainment — a South Korean Entertainment company, which manages idol group BTS — could make a blunder like this and they started trend on Twitter to get the error fixed as soon as possible.
J-hope is part of BTS, both he and any other member should not go through this. It is your responsibility to pay attention to see if any members are missing. Please correct this inadmissible mistake. @BigHitEnt#큰_성공_제이홉이_어딨어요

I don’t understand how big hit really forgot J-Hope in the video??? As a fan I even do a headcount and put my finger down for each member (kind of like joon in that video when JK was missing) every time BTS makes an appearance and a whole management company forgot J-Hope?!?!?

Besides starting multiple trends to make Big Hit Entertainment apologize for the mistake, BTS ARMY made a Google documents to share among fans in order to get the message out there to the company.

A few minutes later, a fan shared an email she received from the Entertainment company regarding the situation.
The response from the company revealed that they apologized for the situation and explained that the opening of the VCR was cut off, thus not showing J-Hope’s part in the intro. Big Hit Entertainment also made it sure that they would air the correct version for the archive and fix the sound as well.
They said they are sorry for the sound trouble, and they also said the opening vcr was cut off at the start! It will be correctly aired for the archive and they have also fixed the sound ????? pic.twitter.com/jholRDZKWn

BTS Fans hope that the Entertainment company will have a look twice before posting anything on the internet to make sure that all of the seven members are shown at all times. Everybody knows how loyal BTS ARMY is and they do not leave any stone unturned to make sure all members of the K-pop band are treated equally.
