The ticket sales for the Seoul concert have not been released yet. The details regarding the concert at the Seoul Olympic Stadium will be announced in the future, according to the entertainment company.

Last week, the seven-member boyband became the first-ever K-pop group to top North America's Billboard 200 album charts with its third studio album, Love Yourself: Tear.

The album's lead track, titled "Fake Love", racked up the third-largest 24-hour rating on YouTube since the video-streaming channel started keeping records. "Fake Love" clocked 35.9 million views in a single day on YouTube. This 24-hour viewership is only outdone by Psy's "Gentleman" (36 million views in April 2013) and Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" ( 43.2 million YouTube views).
