ARMYs are tearfully bidding farewell to BTS‘s Speak Yourself tour, and so are the members.
On October 29, BTS held the last day of their 3-day Speak Yourself [The Final] concert at Seoul Olympic Stadium. The journey to this moment began on August 11, 2017, when BTS released the promotional Love Yourself posters, and it continued through the last album in the Love Yourself series, Love Yourself: Answer.
Love Yourself carried on into 2019, overlapping with the new Map of the Soul: Persona era, through the Love Yourself and Love Yourself: Speak Yourself world tours. It officially came to an end with BTS’s final Love Yourself: Speak Yourself concert.
“Hello, Seoul!” BTS tweeted from their official Twitter account. “Hope you can love yourself more today than yesterday! From LY tour to SY tour, 62 concerts felt long and short! Thank you ARMYs, for your support and love to the very end. Good Bye SY!”

Throughout the concert, the members were overwhelmed with feelings of joy, sadness, and love. Jungkook cried while singing “Mikrokosmos”…
…and Jin‘s heartwarming smile turned to tears during the Ending Ment. By the end of the show, there wasn’t a dry eye on stage or in the audience…
…especially when RM gave his moving speech.
“…though Love Yourself: Speak Yourself ends here, the journey, the path, to finding how to love ourselves doesn’t,” he said. “In the future too, let’s hold hands and figure out how to love ourselves together. All right?”
Goodbye, Speak Yourself, you will be missed!
