On August 24, 2019 (Korean Standard Time), EXID‘s official Twitter account tweeted a link to a live broadcast channel.
When the super excited fans arrived though, they found it was actually linking to BTS Jungkook‘s live broadcast.
The tweet was live for over 30 minutes, before the account realized there has been a glitch. The Jungkook tweet has since been deleted – and an official apology / explanation tweet has been shared. The apology reads, “Hello, this is Banana Culture‘s EXID Twitter manager. We are currently looking into the live broadcast link that was shared on this account today with VLIVE and Twitter. We apologize for raising your concerns.”
[#EXID] 안녕하세요 바나나컬쳐 EXID 트위터 담당자입니다. 금일 현 계정에 공유되었던 영상 링크에 대해 현재 VLIVE와 트위터에 확인 중에 있습니다. 걱정을 끼쳐드려 죄송합니다.

Regardless, EXID fans remain extremely agitated by the mix-up – especially because EXID’s Twitter account has not shared a live broadcast tweet in months, since two of the members Hani and Junghwa ended up not renewing their contracts with the agency.
No further information regarding the deleted tweet has been disclosed yet. However, EXID fans are highly convinced that it was a simple mistake by the account manager.
