BTS made Korea proud once again by being chosen as the world’s leading players at the 2030 Busan Expo on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. The appointment ceremony was held at the HYBE office building in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. The top K-pop stars received awards in recognition of their status as world-wide ambassadors.

K-Pop Seventeen appeared at the event in elegant suits. In addition to holding a number of promotional events, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook will represent Korea. The global Busan Concert, which has already been confirmed for October 2022, will be the first event.

A fanbase of Dynamite singers, known as ARMY, flocked to social media to share their pride as their idols once again make history.

BTS selected as world-wide ambassadors for ‘2030 Busan World Expo’, bringing joy to fans

In early July 2022, HYBE first revealed plans for the K-pop sensation BTS to be appointed as world ambassadors for the 2030 Busan Expo. Septet will hold a concert in Busan next month as part of a promotional activity. One of the countries that submitted bids to host the 2030 World Expo is South Korea.

On July 19th, a K-pop group that was nominated for a Grammy Award was selected as an official ambassador to the world. RM, leader of septet, has declared that the group will do everything possible to advance the Korean cause abroad.

“I am honored to be appointed as the ambassador for the 2030 Busan World Expo. BTS will do their best to host the 2030 Busan World Expo. Starting with the global Busan concert in October, we plan to carry out various ambassador activities.”

A notable guest who attended the appointment ceremony was Busan Mayor Park Heung-jun. He shared his views on Butter Septet’s contribution to Korea’s bid for the 2030 Busan Expo. He said:

The hosting of the 2030 Busan World Expo will be a powerful driving force for achieving national goals and for balanced national development. BTS is preparing for the global Busan concert in October. I am confident that through this performance, millions and billions of people around the world will support Busan’s ambition to host the 2030 World Expo.

The ARMYs shared the good news through SNS, highlighting another notable achievement of Septet. The most recent achievement of the group was acting as a global ambassador for the 2030 Busan Expo.

BTS has already represented Korea on several international platforms. From being appointed presidential envoy for future generations and culture to becoming the first Korean singer to be called to the White House, septet paved the way for the K-pop idol of the future in a way that perhaps could never be duplicated.
