On July 18, BTS held an online showcase for their recent Japanese album, 'Map of the Soul ~ Journey'.
During the showcase, fans noticed that member J Hope is missing in the VCR, which caused fans to request Big Hit for an official explanation over the issue.
According to Big Hit Entertainment, J Hope's part appeared at the very beginning in the opening VCR. Due to an unstable connection, his part was accidentally cut off, along with a sound trouble during the live broadcast. Big Hit reassured that the problem should be fixed for the archive.
Meanwhile, BTS's 4th Japanese album 'Map of the Soul ~ Journey' tops Japan Oricon daily album chart for 5 consecutive days.
