Amid the soaring fears of COVID-19 (the new Coronavirus), BTS inevitably postponed a fan meeting event, which was being originally held in Seoul next Saturday, to celebrate its own comeback.

On Feb. 26, BTS’s agency Big Hit Entertainment made a statement on the group’s official SNS channels, saying “we’re provisionally putting off the schedule of V LIVE in Seoul, a talk show with BTS fans planned on March 7 to celebrate the release of BTS’s fourth full album MAP OF THE SOUL : 7.”
“We just decided it because we consider health and safety of our artists and fans as the top priorities. So please understand our decision because we must cooperate with the Korean government policy. It demands us stop opening any event crowded with a big audience to prevent the further contagion of COVID-19,” the company consecutively explained about the delay. It earnestly concluded the statement, adding “the future plan hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we’ll give you a notice of the detailed schedules as we wait and see the course of COVID-19’s spread.”
We also wish BTS and its fans not to be harmed by the frightening spread of COVID-19, while wishing COVID-19 die down very soon.
