The Busan municipal government is hoping that Saturday’s concert by international K-pop sensation BTS would provide a significant boost to the city’s quest to host World Expo 2030. On Tuesday, Mayor Park Heong-Joon of Busan met with city administration representatives for the last walkthrough of event preparations.
The event, titled “Yet to Come in Busan,” is being hosted at Busan Asiad Main Stadium and will be streamed live to spectators gathering at various locations along Busan Port and Haeundae Beach.
“Roughly 100,000 people are expected to swarm to Busan around the day of the event,” Park said at the meeting in Busan’s city hall. “After successfully executing this massive event with meticulous planning, I want the entire world to know that Busan can effectively execute Expo 2030 as well.”
Representatives from the Busan police department, the Busan tourism organization, and BTS’ management business HYBE were present at the meeting, along with the deputy mayor and senior officials from the city government offices planning the event.
On Friday, the Asiad Main Stadium will serve as the concert’s primary command post. The control room’s duties include keeping an eye on the show and responding to any unexpected situations that may arise.

Somewhere about a thousand officials and other staff will be stationed at Asiad Main Stadium to assist visitors. Busan Port and Haeundae Beach will each have as many as 200 city employees present to assist tourists and manage traffic.
Approximately two hundred translators will be available at Gimhae Airport, Busan Station, and all metro transfer stations to help visitors get oriented in Korea’s largest port city. As part of their crackdown on sellers overcharging tourists, the organizers will also keep an eye on the area’s hotels and restaurants.
The municipal government of Dynamic Busan printed a special four-page newspaper in English (40,000 copies) and Japanese (20,000 copies) for the benefit of concertgoers and tourists (10,000 copies). The publication includes tips for both locals and visitors, such as where to find free Wi-Fi and where to see popular spots frequented by BTS members including Dadaepo Beach and the Busan Museum of Art.
The city administration of Busan, South Korea, went all out for BTS’s arrival on Wednesday by lighting up the Busan Tower, Busan Port Bridge, Gwangan Bridge, and Nurimaru APEC House in purple.
