According to a report by mk.co.kr as translated by entertainment website Soompi, the 2030 Busan World Expo bidding committee announced that following the appointment of BTS as ambassadors for the expo, the K-Pop group will be holding a concert this October in Busan. The concert aims to spark awareness in support of Busan's bid for the world expo 2030.

"We thank HYBE for their active cooperation. We are confident that BTS’s support for the 2030 Busan World Expo will be of huge strength for the bidding of Busan, amidst this competitive situation. We will engage in recruitment negotiations, with the government also doing everything in its capacity," said Park Jung-wook, Secretary General of 2030 Busan World Expo, at the first strategy meeting for the expo bid on Thursday, July 7.


Meanwhile, Lee Sung-kwon, the deputy economic mayor of Busan, remarked that the city of Busan will be actively supporting BTS as ambassadors of the expo.

“This was a meaningful meeting where we could discuss concrete measures as soon as possible, after signing the memorandum of understanding [MOU]. In the future too, the city of Busan will work with the government to actively support BTS, a global icon and representative of Korean culture, in their promotions as the ambassador of the 2030 Busan World Expo," he stated.

Busan and HYBE signed a memorandum of understanding on June 24 for the world expo bidding. BTS will be doing various promotional activities as ambassadors for the 2030 Busan World Expo.
