On March 17-18, the very first 'KCON' in Mexico took place in Mexico City. Various K-Pop artists including BTS and NCT 127 attended the event.
Following the show, ARMYS -BTS' fandom- received criticism for chanting their group's name during NCT 127's performance. Fans of NCT 127 criticized the Mexican ARMYs for rudely interrupting NCT 127's stage. ARMYs in Korea also called out the fans in Mexico for being rude.
In response to the criticism, BTS fans in Mexico issued an apology and clarification on the issue. The ARMYs claimed that the interruption occurred due to misunderstanding. It's stated that they didn't know NCT 127 was preparing for their last performance and thought, "their performance was over and that it was the turn of all artists to come on stage and say goodbye."
The ARMYs then sincerely apologized and emphasized that they also greatly enjoyed NCT 127's performance.
Many NCT 127's fans are accepting the apology. On the other hand, some are claiming that it was obvious NCT 127's performance wasn't over since the group's name was still up on the LED banner.
