BTS's Debut 10th Anniversary

General Information

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the world-renowned group BTS’s debut, a series of commemorative events are set to take place across Seoul. Spanning from June 12 to June 25, 2023, these festivities will be centered around Yeouido Han River Park and its surrounding areas.

Despite some of the members, including Jin and J-Hope, currently serving in the military, the significance of their decennial anniversary ensures a variety of events are on the horizon. Traditionally, BTS has held events and festivals around their debut date, June 13, each year. While the pandemic has forced previous celebrations to shift online, this year’s milestone occasion will see a return to in-person festivities.
