Will South Korean boy group BTS perform in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea?
On January 9, the National Assembly's Culture, Sports, and Tourism Committee chairman Ahn Min-suk said, "The committee will push forward the idea of BTS hosting a concert at Rungnado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang this September."
According to Ahn Min-suk, the concert will be held in celebration of one year anniversary of the September Pyongyang Joint Declaration signed between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
North Korea's Rungnado May Day Stadium is the largest multi-purpose stadium in the world, with a total capacity of approximately 150,000.
In response, BTS' management agency Big Hit Entertainment stated, "We have nothing to say regarding the concert at the moment."
