Group BTS leaves to Saudi Arabia. Members of BTS departed to Saudi Arabia through Incheon International Airport around 11 pm on the 9th of October KST.

The members appeared at the airport wearing cardigans, hooded t-shirts, and masks in chilly weather, leaving home with support from fans. BTS member Jungkook greeted the fans with the words “I’m going well” and left with a selfie.

The South Korean pop group BTS is not backing down from an upcoming concert in Saudi Arabia, despite facing criticism about performing in a country with a questionable human rights record. Despite the backlash, the boy band spoke out on the decision to perform in the capital, Riyadh. 

In an interview with the group leader, RM shared “I wouldn’t say it was easy,” – whose real name is Kim Nam-Joon. He also added “But we were officially invited. It’s been a while since we’ve performed in the Middle East.”

BTS will hold a concert on October 11 (local time) at the Riyadh King Fahd International Stadium in Saudi Arabia. BTS is the first overseas artist to perform a concert at this venue.
