BTS recently completed their 6-year anniversary global fan meeting, BTS 5TH MUSTER MAGIC SHOP, in Busan on June 15-16.
The location of this fan meeting was particularly special as it is the hometown of the members Jungkook and Jimin. As a result, the city of Busan welcomed BTS to Busan with open arms by lighting up the city in purple and more.
In connection with this event, it has also been reported that hotels surrounding the venue reached a record booking rate. A representative of one of these hotels stated that they’ve already sold 150 rooms and that 30% of them are known to be tourists.

In fact, the Busan Tourism Organization has introduced a new product which tours the locations of Jungkook and Jimin’s childhood such as their elementary schools, etc.
The locations where BTS lived or spent their childhood is like a shrine to fans. We’ve developed them into a (tour) course so that fans can travel conveniently.
