For the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began, South Korean boy band BTS will be having three concerts in Seoul next month according to their agency. The company, Big Hit Music, mentioned that the forthcoming BTS concerts will also be live streamed at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium for three days, from March 10-13.
BTS’ last concert in South Korea was in October 2019, which was only a few months before the coronavirus outbreak. As the spread of virus escalated, they had no choice but to cancel the supposedly biggest international tour —- 40 concerts that were replaced with online shows instead.
The first offline concerts that were held during the pandemic was in Los Angeles last November. Some die hard South Korean fans even flew to the country for the shows.
Some Members Hit by COVID-19 Despite Full Vaccination
The coronavirus pandemic affected some of the group’s members even though they were all fully vaccinated. Members Suga, Jin, and RM tested positive last December after they returned from their US shows. Last month it was Jimin who tested positive, while it was confirmed by the agency that the latest to have been hit by the virus was V. Except for sore throat and a mild fever, V had no symptoms and the other members tested negative for the infectious virus. Big Hit Music mentioned in a statement that the artist is currently on a home-treatment and promises a fast recovery
