American broadcasting company NBC made a mistake and used video footage of BTS’ RM while reporting about SHINee Jonghyun’s death.
Not only they used the wrong footage, but they even reported that Jonghyun had appeared on The Ellen Show, which is wrong information.
NBC has officially apologized on their Twitter account.
Yesterday, while reporting on the death of Kim Jong-hyun, a member of the popular South Korean boy band SHINee, NBC 5 mistakenly aired video of the band BTS during our morning newscast. We sincerely apologize for this error. pic.twitter.com/b4ciVSLDlL
