Their debut on June 13, a decade ago, holds immense significance for the K-pop fans, also known as ARMY, who will be painting the town purple with their love and support. Furthermore, major landmarks in Seoul will be illuminated in purple, symbolizing the celebration of the band’s 10th anniversary since its debut.

In collaboration with the K-pop group’s agency, Hybe, and the Seoul Metropolitan Government, discussions are underway to organize various events to commemorate this monumental milestone. One such plan includes the creation of ‘ARMY Road,’ named after the band’s global fandom, at prominent locations throughout the city. These events aim to not only celebrate BTS but also boost Seoul’s tourism industry, which has been significantly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the K-pop group has continuously engaged with their fans through innovative online initiatives. Even during a time when large in-person events were not possible, the group hosted large-scale online meet-and-greet events, allowing fans from around the world to interact with one another. As the 10th-anniversary approaches, BTS is expected to announce similar events that will foster a sense of togetherness and celebration, even in the absence of some members due to mandatory military duty.

Honoring a decade of achievements

In honor of their momentous 10th anniversary, BTS is set to release a memoir entitled ‘Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS’ in both South Korea and the United States. This memoir will offer fans a unique glimpse into the band’s journey, sharing cherished memories, personal anecdotes, and behind-the-scenes stories. Additionally, a commemorative stamp will be issued in South Korea, further solidifying the band’s enduring legacy.
