  • BigHit Entertainment announced that BTS have cancelled their Korean tour dates due to the Coronavirus.
  • They were planning on playing four days at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul.
  • Fans started to send love to Korean ARMY members on Twitter.

BTS have cancelled several concerts in Korea that were set for April due to the coronavirus.

BigHit Entertainment made the announcement on BTS's Weverse profile saying that the concerts set for April 11, 12, 18, 19 at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul, South Korea have been cancelled due to increased concerns over the virus.

"The current global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has made it impossible at this time predict the scale of the outbreak during the dates of the concert in April, alongside increasing uncertainty about the cross-border movement of concert staff and equipment," BigHit said in their statement.

"While we hope that the situation will improve, we must take into consideration the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of guests as well as our artists and the dire impact a last-minute cancellation may have on guests from overseas, production companies and staff," they continued. "We have thus determined that with approximately one month left before the Seoul concert is set to begin, it is unavoidable that the concert must be cancelled without further delay."

Fans who have already purchased tickets, will receive a full refund for their purchases.

After the cancellation announcement, ARMY members from around the world started spreading messages to Korean ARMY fans using the hashtag #좋은_날이_앞으로_많기를, which translates to "hoping that there will be more good days," from their song '2! 3!' from their album Wings.
