BTS has turned Riyadh purple.
Lights turned landmarks in Saudi Arabia's capital city purple, the signature color of South Korean boyband BTS, on Thursday local time.
It was to welcome the group who are preparing to perform at the King Fahd International Stadium on Friday local time.
Though K-pop stars have performed before in the Middle East,… this is the first time for a South Korean boygroup to have a stadium all to themselves in the kingdom.
BTS fans wearing abaya, a robe-like dress covering the whole body except for heads, feet and hands, were eager to buy goods from the booths, and also sang BTS songs out loud outside the stadium plaza, showing how excited they were to meet their idols.
The 'LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF' world stadium tour will end in Seoul on October 29th.
Meanwhile, BTS are opening a pop-up megastore in Gangnam-gu District in Seoul.
According to Big Hit Entertainment on Thursday,… this pop-up store will open for around 80 days starting from next Friday.
The four-story building will be filled with BTS-related products,… and backgrounds from the group's music videos.
This store will mostly be decorated in pink,… which is the signature color of the group's song 'Boy With Luv' off their latest album.
