Previously, in a video released on the same YouTube channel, BTS had shared, “We are very honored to be named ambassadors for such a meaningful event. If the World Expo opens in Busan in 2030, Korea will have become the seventh country to have held the world’s three mega-events, along with the World Cup and the Olympics!” They continued, “We are so happy that BTS will take part in advocating for the 2030 Busan World Expo! Not only will we be advocating for the World Expo to happen in Busan, but BTS and HYBE will also continue our work to help progress Korean culture.”
Further, BTS will be holding a global concert to support Busan’s bid for the world expo, and the same will be taking place in the month of October. As goodwill ambassadors, BTS will also be participating in activities to appeal to the members of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), which votes for the host country.
