SOUTH KOREA: BUSAN-
One of the most popular subjects in South Korea and the rest of the globe right now is the BTS performance in Busan in 2022. Fans were overjoyed when it was first revealed that BTS would host a concert to support South Korea’s candidacy for the 2030 World Expo to be held in Busan.
The group will have a free-to-view concert on October 15 called “Yet To Come in Busan,” it was later revealed. Now that BTS has sold out the 110,000 complimentary tickets for the aforementioned performance, fresh safety and financial worries have caused supporters to think that the concert would be postponed.
First and foremost, there is the matter of the government’s lack of support for the free concert in Busan. Fans argued that since BTS was hosting the event for Busan, the government should be held accountable for its costs, which might total up to 7 billion KRW ($5.1M).
In addition, the damaged new arena is another problem that affects fans. According to reports, the Busan Asiad Main Stadium’s integrity was jeopardised two years ago as a result of a typhoon that caused nine of the stadium’s roof panels to be blown away.
However, because the stadium’s restorations were planned to begin in April 2023, several fans are worried for both the BTS members’ and attendees’ safety.
HYBE issues a statement regarding the free concert “Yet To Come in Busan.”
On Thursday, September 22, HYBE made a lengthy statement about the 2022 Busan performance in which they discussed how these financial difficulties were of little concern to them.
According to the statement, “BTS would not have been able to generate as many results at major events for our nation and the rest of the world if cost had been the primary consideration when participating in national competitions in the past.”
“We have focused on the procedure to produce high-level results at events where BTS participates,” the label continued, “and we have considered that it was meaningful enough because we were satisfied with the results we achieved with BTS.”
