A Chinese YouTuber abused a new feature introduced by YouTube, angering the BTS fans.

On the 1st, YouTube introduced a new feature called “Handle.” A handle is a unique channel identifier that begins with @, such as @youtube, and helps viewers and creators to find and connect with each other on YouTube. The handle also appears on the YouTube channel page and in the short video, and YouTube viewers can also mention the creator’s handle ID in comment sections.

The problem is that a Chinese YouTuber stole the handle ID of BTS, taking advantage of the fact that Korean artists have yet changed their IDs. This particular YouTuber has about 3,000 subscribers, and by using the “@BTS_official” handle, she induced ARMY to watch her videos.

Currently, BTS‘s YouTube channel uses the ID “BANGTANTV” but its twitter account is “BTS_official.”
