However, on June 23, HYBE issued a fresh notice mentioning that instead of selling the butter cookies, it will now provide opportunities to all ARMY members by winning through a draw lot. This disappointed BTS fans who then tried to cancel their tickets, but failed to do so. As per HYBE’s regulations, the museum tickets cannot be canceled one day before admission. What followed is criticism from ARMY members against the agency. Several fans took to social media accusing the agency of wooing them to increase their sales. Some of the fans also reported the issue to the Korea Consumer Agency.

We will refund only those who booked in HYBE Insight on the 24th after the sales notice on the 22nd,” the statement read. They also mentioned that the draw was considered inevitable for safety purposes.
