BTS members Jimin and Jungkook expressed their joy about holding a concert in their hometown Busan.
This is the first show that BTS performed as a whole group since their last concert in Las Vegas in April and the announcement of their group activity suspension in June.
BTS held “Yet to Come in BUSAN” concert for free in order to promote the city for the 2030 Busan World Expo. All the seats in the stadium were filled by about 50,000 ARMYs. In addition, there were “live play” events at the outdoor parking lot of the Busan International Passenger Terminal and Haeundae Special Stage where others can enjoy the concert together through large screens.
The concert began with “MIC Drop”. The members, who presented a powerful performance from the beginning of the concert to match the intense atmosphere of the song, then heated up the stadium by performing “Run BTS” and “RUN” as follow-up songs.
After the opening stages, V said “It’s been a while since the last time we could hear cheers at concerts like this” as he was thrilled by the explosive reactions of fans. Jungkook, whose hometown is Busan, shouted “Busan” loudly. He smiled brightly and said, “I’m the child who lived in Busan”. Jimin, who is also from Busan, added, “Busan! I really missed you guys. We finally met”.
RM then said, “This is our first performance in Busan in three years. It’s our honor to be with you guys at such a meaningful concert for the promotion of the 2030 Busan World Expo”.
Looking at Jimin and Jungkook, V said, “I think today’s concert is especially more exciting than ever”. Jungkook smiled and continued, “That’s right. Jimin hyung and I are from Busan. I’m very happy to be with so many ARMYs here in Busan”.
Jimin also shared, “I feel so happy and honored to meet you all like this, but the fact that I’m taking you all to my hometown also gives me some kind of exciting and strange feelings. Thank you for coming.”
Regarding the concert this time, Suga introduced, “We hope you feel like you’re enjoying a festival with BTS”. J-Hope added, “We prepared songs that you can sing along to and dance together with us”.
RM then said, “We’re having a festival with you all today. It’s literally a festival. I just want you to dance and sing with us right now. The weather is getting a little chilly, so let’s heat up this cool atmosphere”, announcing the beginning of a full-fledged concert.
