This left fans furious who reported the same and argued that buying BTS products on sites, other than Weverse is not supporting the K-pop singers. “HYBE needs to crack down on resellers. 😤 People are buying on Weverse just to jack up the price on eBay or mercari! There are Mute bags already listed for $1k+! This is seriously messed up!” one of the fans Tweeted. The sale was soon taken down.

For the unversed, Kim Taehyung’s self-designed bag was released on January 8. It is a sleek leather Boston bag in a mute colour. The bag is in very high demand across the world and is already sold out in several countries including Japan.

Meanwhile, BTS members are currently on a short break and are at their homes in South Korea. On the work front, the K-pop singers are due to hold a mega concert in Seoul in March 2022. It is titled ‘Permission To Dance On Stage’.
