South Korean boy band BTS will perform their first show for fans in their hometown after the coronavirus outbreak began with three concerts scheduled for the capital city, Seoul next month, their agency announced this Wednesday.

The performances, which form as part of the ‘Permission to Dance on Stage’ tour, which has been earlier interrupted by the outbreak of Corona virus will now take place at the Seoul Olympic Stadium on March 10, 12, and 13 and will be streamed live, Bit Hit Music said.

“We want to thank everyone on ARMY who have waited patiently for an event in person that will be staged in Korea,” the company announced on its fan-based platform, Weverse, referring to the group’s fan base worldwide called Adorable Representative MC for Youth.

Since their debut in 2013 they have led an international K-Pop trend that has been gaining popularity with their lively dancing, upbeat music along with songs and social campaigns that aim to empower young people.

The group of seven members created history in November and became the first Asian artist to be awarded the most coveted award in the American Music Awards.


The last time they performed to South Korean fans was in October, two months prior to when the coronavirus was discovered. When the pandemic began to spread in 2020, they delayed and cancelled the planned tour, which was supposed to be their largest global tour that included more than 40 shows. They staged a few online shows instead.

They held their first live concert since the outbreak of the virus in November on 19 in Los Angles, and some avid South Korean fans flew in to see the performances.

The epidemic has also affected certain members of the group although all members are immunized. V V, the singer and songwriter , whose identity is actually Kim Tae-hyung was confirmed on Tuesday as the fifth member to sign a contract with the Covid-19 label, Bit Hit said.

V did not have any symptoms aside from mild fever and a sore throat. All other members had been tested negative. “He is currently receiving the treatment in his own home” according to a company announcement and promised a speedy recovery.

Rapper RM and singer Jin and rapper Suga have tested positive for the virus at the end of December, just after their return from US shows. Singer Jimin was infected earlier in the month.
