As its eight season gets underway, fans of Games Of Thrones are accusing the show of ‘jumping the shark’ after a band of traveling troubadours from Yi Ti were introduced who were obviously the K-Pop sensation BTS.
“The ratings weren’t even that bad, so I don’t see why they had to do this?”
Though the appearance of BTS is being commended for correcting the absence of Asian characters on the show, viewers complained that the way they broke into perfectly executed dance routines was distracting.
“It seemed at odds with the gory battle scene that was taking place around them.”
Fans also thought the singers’ origin story was thinly sketched.
“I’ll buy where they came from, but how is it that Yi Ti has developed an advanced textile industry producing modern colorful clothing, while Westeros is still using animal skins?”
