But the broadcaster withdrew its invitation this week after a photo of Jiminwearing the T-shirt went viral.
Unsurprisingly, BTS fans are pretty unhappy with the news.
BTS apologised for the cancellation but made no reference to the T-shirt.
The long-sleeved shirt, worn by BTS member Jimin, also reads "patriotism" and "Korea" while depicting a celebration of the country's liberation from Japan in 1945.
It also carries images of what appears to be a mushroom cloud created by an exploding atomic bomb, and of Koreans celebrating their liberation from Japanese rule in August 1945, the month the USA carried out nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Fans pointed out that Jimin's political shirt - the reason their appearance on "Music Station" was postponed - was worn nearly 2 years ago by the idol.
The t-shirt appeared to reference the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea, which ended in 1945 after the U.S. dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

TV Asahi said the Billboard-topping band wouldn't be appearing on its show "Music Station" on Friday night (Nov 9) after reaching out to BTS' record label about the T-shirt, which had caused controversy on social media ahead of the band's tour of Japan beginning next week.
Hundreds of thousands of people were killed instantly and many more died in the years to come as a result of radiation sickness. The problem is not the relation between Japan and Korea.
It is believed that Jimin wore the shirt past year.
The T-shirt in question is one worn by BTS member Jimin, which started a commotion on the Japanese Internet last month. Despite IZ*ONE's successful debut stage on KBS's ' Music Bank' last week, some netizens are still petitioning the girl group's promotions on the station; the government petition demanding a ban on IZ*ONE from appearing on public broadcast station programs now has approximately 30,000 signatures. "Jimin don't blame yourself", said one Twitter user.
The cancellation comes as ties between Japan and Korea have becoming increasingly strained in recent years.
