Seoul’s Landmarks To Light Up In Purple To Celebrate BTS’s Fan Meetings And Welcome ARMYs
Seoul will be lighting up in purple for BTS!
In celebration of BTS’s fifth “Muster” fan meeting in Seoul, Korea’s capital city will be lighting up its landmarks in purple. Purple is a special color for BTS and their fans, as V has defined “purple” to be a word that means, “to trust and love for a long time.”
Previously, the Empire State Building in New York City lit up in purple to welcome BTS to the city. Several landmarks in Busan, the hometown of members Jimin and Jungkook, also shined in purple to celebrate BTS’s “Muster” fan meeting in Busan.
BTS will be holding their Seoul fan meetings at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena on June 22 and 23. The event will be attended by 25,000 people from all over the world. To welcome overseas ARMYs to Korea, officials from Seoul decided to light up the city’s landmarks in purple. The landmarks include Seoullo 7017, Dongho Bridge, Seoul City Hall, Lotte World Tower, N Seoul Tower, and Sebitseom, which will be lit up from June 21 through June 23 after sunset (8 p.m.) each day.
Advertisements of BTS will also be displayed around the city. An official from the city shared, “Several advertisements of BTS, including the promotion video they filmed with the city of Seoul, will be put up in various locations including the Seoul Metropolitan Library. Through this, we plan to make known the fact that BTS is the honorary ambassador for Seoul and ultimately promote the city of Seoul to tourists.”
