BTS performed live for the first time on Saturday during the group’s “Yet to Come” concert in Busan, South Korea, following the announcement of their “second chapter” (not sabbatical). The long-awaited K-pop septet reunion was significant in and of itself, but Jin’s solo project was also announced at the occasion.
The committee organized the “Yet to Come” performance at Busan’s Asiad Stadium as a free event to raise awareness of the city’s application to host the 2030 World Expo. The show was packed with 55,000 spectators and livestreamed on Weverse. The two-hour performance, which included the entire lineup of Jin, Suga, J-hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, provided more insight into the boy band’s status while they pursue solo careers.
Jimin reportedly encouraged the ARMY regarding the future of BTS as a whole by saying, “Although it’s so sad that the concert is ending already, it’s not like we only have today. We will continue for 30 years… and even perform when we are 70 years old.”
During their concluding statements, J-hope personally addressed the fans, telling them, “I think we’re in a phase where we need your trust,” to which RM chipped in, “All seven members have the same thoughts. We will continue to make and perform music if you give us your trust like Jimin said.”
