BTS finish world tour with finale in Seoul Updated: 2019-10-29 16:43:37 KST

"Tens of thousands of BTS fans from all over the world have gathered at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium to witness the final concert of the ‘LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF’ world tour."

"Their music just brings all of these people together because the message that they are spreading like Love yourself… it's amazing, If you ask me, I think. If you look around all these people think the same way."

"I like BTS because they really helped me go through really dark phase in my life and I think someone said that you find BTS when you need them the most. I think that's the case for me, too."

The last of BTS' three concerts in Seoul marks the end of the group's extended 'Love Yourself' world tour.
After seeing a massive success from the first tour last year, the seven-member boyband extended their global journey.
That extension, dubbed 'Love Yourself: Speak Yourself', has generated over 170-million U.S. dollars through ticket sales and BTS-related merchandise sales.
Over the first tour and its extension,BTS performed in thirteen countries, including the U.S., England, Japan, Brazil and Saudi Arabia dazzling over two million fans along the way.
The group's total economic effect for South Korea has been calculated at four.six-five billion dollars.

"BTS' effect on production inducement is about 26 times the annual average sales of mid-sized Korean companies, and the value-adding effect is about 9 times that."

Experts say if you include the increased interest in the Korean language and other cultural influences that cannot easily be given a monetary value, the effect of BTS is even more pronounced.
