On Twitter, SM Entertainment labeled their bands NCT and Aespa as “Golden Maknaes,” a term commonly associated with BTS member Jungkook. BTS Army descended on Twitter to slam SM Entertainment, BTS’ rival, for pulling such a cheap stunt. For those unfamiliar with Korean, “maknae” refers to the youngest member of a group.
BTS Army wasted no time in dragging SM Entertainment onto Twitter, reminding them that the term Golden Maknae was only intended for BTS’ Jungkook. A few people also shared an old video in which BTS’s RM, whose real name is Kim Namjoon, gave his fellow bandmate the nickname. In November, BTS Army chastised SM Entertainment for using an animation that looked very similar to BTS’ rapper J-Hope in one of their advertisements.
