Why Wont K-Pop Stars Visit This Country?

The highly anticipated Love Yourself – Speak Yourself Tour of BTS will start next May 4th at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Los Angeles, California. With this new tour, just a few months after the Love Yourself Tour, the Korean band, beloved all over the world, will also return to perform in the Old Continent.

The BTS have in fact managed, in these years, to climb the charts of half the world, earning the stage of some of the most important European stadiums. The boy band composed of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Rap Monster, Jimin, V and Jungkook will perform on 1 and 2 June at the Wembley Arena in London and on 7 and 8 June at the Stade de France in Paris. Needless to say, of course, tickets for their European concerts have sold out in no time at all.

The Italian BTS Army (not to mention that of other countries that have had the same fate) in any case finds itself once again “snubbed” by the K-Pop band. Unfortunately, at least for this time, the BTS have not included in their calendar any live Italian appointment. But why don’t the BTS, and more generally the K-Pop artists, come to our country?

The answer to this question is provided by the nice Seoul Mafia, a well-known youtuber that for several years now has lived between Italy and South Korea, the home of K-Pop.

In the Q&A video you find below, Marco Ferrara (this is his real name) explained that this type of band is asking for very high numbers for their engagements. To date, unfortunately, the organizers of the concerts cannot really afford to pay artists who, in our country, would probably risk not registering sold out in stadiums and arenas.

What do you think of K-Pop? Would you be willing to take a flight to enjoy the BTS concert even in another country?
