Fans have begun trending messages to Big Hit Entertainment urging them to reconsider changing the names from BTS’s real names to fictitious ones.
Big Hit DOES NOT own the group member's birth names!!! It is mentally damaging and irresponsible to use their real names in a drama with fictional stories!!! Isn't this common sense? @bts_bighit @BigHitEnt

I don't think using the real names of the members in a drama that is available to third parties, not just fans, cannot expect positive results not only from the current members but also from the fandom.
Please review the drama.@BigHitEnt@bts_bighit

The new BTS drama, which contains sensitive and problematic subjects, will use BTS' real names. We urge @BigHitEnt to change them to fictitious, as it may cause misunderstanding with the public that are not familiar with the nature of the content and issues with the boys' images

They have even begun to use the hashtags #드라마_본명_절대반대 (absolutely oppose using real names for the drama), #세계관드라마_본명_철회해 (withdraw real names from the storyline drama), #방탕드라마_유스_제작철회해 (withdraw BTS drama ‘youth’) as a way to bring attention to this matter to the company.
On the other hand, others have no problem with the usage of the group members’ names and feel that it’s only a way to reference the character to the actor according to the BU storyline.
Im thinking the same way.. it was just a matter of referencing which bts character the actors will be playing since theyre marketing it as a BU based drama.. Either way, im going to support it. ✨

What are your thoughts on this? Should they be able to use BTS’s real names or not?
