BTS Announces Stricter Security Measures For “Love Yourself” Concert in Seoul
Don’t even think about it – BigHit Entertainment announces they will be implementing stricter security for BTS’ Love Yourself concert in Seoul.
BigHit Entertainment announced on August 21 that they will be taking enhanced security measures for BTS’ upcoming Love Yourself concert in Seoul.
They made the preliminary announcement via social media and BTS’ official fan cafe on August 21 – four days before the group’s show. The agency reminded fans to keep their tickets with them and arrive on time. They also emphasized the prohibition of carrying restricted items and prohibition of filming and recording.
“We will operate an airport-level security checkpoint at the venue entrance,” BigHit stated. “Refunds requested due to delays in arrival because of prohibited item possession will not be honored,” they added. Before the show begins, search dogs will also be deployed to conduct detection of prohibited items inside the main arena.
BigHit Entertainment also pointed out that the venue, Jamsil Stadium, is an outdoor performance hall. The agency shared that there is a possibility of rain on the day of the performance due to weather changes such as typhoons. “Even if it rains, the performance will push through, and cancellations and refunds on the day due to rainy weather will not be honored,” BigHit stated.
They also revealed that special effects using water will be used for the show. “Special effects involving water will be used for production purposes, therefore clothes and personal belongings may get wet for some audiences sitting on the floor (reserved seat) area. The promoter, organizers, or reservation website will not be responsible for any damage to personal belongings, clothes, etc.,” the agency said.
BTS will kick off their Love Yourself world tour with a two-day show on August 25 and 26 in Seoul’s Jamsil Stadium.
