Internationally-acclaimed K-Pop boy group BTS plans to hold a global concert in Busan, South Korea, in October to support the country’s bid to host the World Expo, in 2030, according to HYBE on Thursday.
According to the bid committee, they will officially appoint the members of the global pop group as ambassadors for the upcoming event this month.
It has not been a month since the group revealed to focus more on their solo works during the BTS Festa 2022, but a concert with the seven members will be their promotional activity.
“As a public relations ambassador, BTS plans to carry out various promotional activities based on its global influence to host the 2030 Busan World Expo,” HYBE said.
Aside from South Korea, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, and Russia also submitted their bids. Official announcement on the winning host will be made in November 2023.
