The 8 BTS concerts/musters were given to viewers for free amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that has hit the world, forcing people to be quarantined in their homes.
BigHit and BTS could have earned a substantial sum by airing these 8 BTS concerts for a fee, but they did not. This goes to show that the legendary boys and their company is indeed true to their mission: “Music for Healing”. They care more about how they can produce music to help people around the world conquer their fears, and to heal and love themselves.
