BTS holds historic concert at Wembley Stadium
K-pop sensation BTS has taken the stage at England's Wembley Stadium,... becoming the first Korean artists to headline the iconic British venue. Tens of thousands of so-called army fans flocked to the London stadium over the weekend.
Our culture correspondent Lee Min-sun reports. BTS has once again made history by becoming the first ever South Korean artists to headline London's iconic Wembley Stadium.
Some 60-thousand fans filled the stadium to witness the group's second-ever set of London concerts. The K-pop sensations performed their tracks during their two sold-out concerts over the weekend and fans sang along with the Korean lyrics. The concert featured innovative elements such as augmented reality and an aero balloon robot.
The concerts are also a memorable milestone for the 7-member group, as they grew up watching performances held at Wembley and dreamed of performing at the stadium.
Fans from all around the world were not just excited by the group's successful sold-out stadium debut but were inspired by their ability to bring Asian culture to the western hemisphere and spread their message through their lyrics in Korean.
"It's amazing how they are not from the West and they are doing so well here and they are like doing really like great things and like, also Asian representation - myself as an Asian, I'm like really happy that they are bringing like their culture to the West and their message in their songs are like amazing."
"They also write about a lot more things than just love, which I know is like a super hot topic in music but they also write about like social injustice and like how our generation has to work so hard to just like achieve something, like how the older generations kind of don't see that as hard work, and I just think that is really inspiring."
The boyband's London shows are a part of their 'LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF' world tour. The tour will continue in Paris, France on the 7th and 8th.
