Will BTS attend the ‘SDG Moment’ event of 76th General Assembly in person?
BTS ARMY has been constantly discussing if BTS will travel to New York to attend United Nations’ 76th General Assembly 2021 in person. An earlier report noted that HYBE is preparing for the travel by vaccinating all the staff members.
According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government and Yongsan-gu on the 13th, HYBE submitted a list of 100 staff members to Seoul and Yongsan-gu asking to give them priority to the COVID-19 vaccine. As the reason for priority, HYBE wrote, “departure for special activities.”
Based on speculations as BTS has already received Diplomats passports from the President, they will likely leave for New York soon.
Another rumor in the report mentioned that as many as 100 staff getting priority vaccination can also mean that the 21st-century music icons are soon to resume their ‘overseas tours.’
An agency official explained, “The fact that the company vaccinated about 100 staff members at the same time for the purpose of leaving the country means that their singers’ tours and fan meetings will be held overseas.”
The rumor further says that the group can hold concerts in Singapore and the US in mid-November.
