Tours and CF's are where the money is made, so good on them. Hope they don't over exhaust themselves though and that they may ne able to experience different culutures while they're there

I am jealous of other countries too, because BTS probably ain't going to visit Russia in the nearest future. And it takes 6 hours of flight to get to Moscow + airtickets are very expensive, even if they visit. For Far East it's better to fly to Seoul to attend concerts - same price of airtickets.

I am seriously so happy and lucky to have tickets to their Chicago show! I am so pumped for this concert you have no idea. My heart goes out to all those fans that werent able to get tickets because I know what that feels like. I had the opportunity to see them twice once for their red bullet tour and the second for kcon and was not able to get tickets to either.

I'm from Chile, and I don't know MBLAQ, and I don't understand your concerns. But I can talk about BTS success in Chile and all the Americas (North, Central and South America). BTS is huge here. And it's not the first time that they come here. In 2015, during TRB II Tour, they had concerts in USA, Mexico, Brazil and Chile, and they had no problem here. Their shows were all successful. We enjoyed a lot their concerts, and they (BTS) were so happy with us, since that time BTS has gained A LOT OF fans, in fact, one concert here was not enough for us (concert on Sunday, 12 March), so Chilean Armys begged for a new date, and BigHit plus Noix Productions decided a second concert that it is possible only on Saturday 11, in March. Nobody here talks about MBLAQ. What happened to them? About BTS concerts, new date is practically sold out right now, the first date was sold out

What is wrong with you? MBLAQ was not the only k-pop group who went to South America. Many other groups went to different countries without any issue. Get over yourself seriously.

MBLAQ was very popular in South america, so much than any other Kpop there, and so their company decided to promote/concert..etc there. They had spend a very long time there, we couldn't see them anymore for about a year, then when they cameback, their fandom had decreased a lot to the point their comeback was a flop... Since then I have a trauma of a KPOP spending too much time in South america...

it's literally just you and another person and that person is getting roasted as well. and you're the only one who keeps talking about mblaq even when they have nothing to do with bts. hence, get over yourself. you guys don't seem to understand touring is where all the money's at. has it ever occurred to you before that 1) the boys love performing 2) they want to give back to their fans in south america 3) this is a business so obviously the company AND the boys want to make money?? the more tour dates the better i'll say. but ok, since you want to immerse yourself in your "trauma" of mblaq and it helps you sleep better at night then please go ahead to do so.

I don't remember the details, but I highly doubt MBLAQ almost a year in South America. But aside of that, this stupid. The Wonder Girls spent years in the US and 2PM in Japan. Both groups suffered a decrease in popularity due to that but your trauma is just with South America? Also, BTS is only doing two concerts in Chile. I'm sure they will even have another comeback soon.

so you see, MBLAQ, wondergirls and 2PM, it's not good to spend too much time on concert abroad. Plus here it have been forced by the chilie fans because of they protested on tweeter. They force bighit to make more dates.. you think it is nice ?

what do you mean "forced?" did the chile fans put a gun to bighit's management and threatened them?? the reason why bighit added another date is because they saw the profitability in it. it's as simple as that.

At this point I don't know if you're trolling or you're seriously this stupid. Going to other countries is not the issue. How popular the group is makes a huge difference, and of course the time they spend in one place also affects them. But BTS is only going to Chile for two concert, and their level of popularity is in a whole new level. In anything fans requesting another concert is a good sign because usually fans from close countries will travel to Chile to see BTS, and this shows how truly popular they are. No one is forcing anyone so stop making such a drama.

?? yes it is about disagreement. I do not AGREE with everything you said. English isn't my native language, and I have difficulties to express myself correctly as I lack of vocabulary, but I do'nt want to see BTS beeing abroad for a long time. TO me it is very negative ! we could talks for hours, I will stay on my position because I experience with MBLAQ. OK ! now you can think whatever, i'm a troll or stupid, but that's jsut me, and that's what I think ! sorry, and I even go to univ... ;p

I think there's a big difference between asking/begging and forcing. Chilean fans didn't force anyone, they just wanted another date because the tickets for the first concert sold out in no time, so a lot of people couldn't get one.

In another comment you said you wanted BTS to stay in Asia. Now, last time I checked Japan was part of Asia. For 2PM promoting too long in Japan ended up damaging their popularity in Korea. But you keep insisting the problem is South America so what you say makes no sense. If BTS were to promote more than a year in South America, then yes I would totally understand your worries. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT HE CASE. They are only going to Chile for a few days to have two concert. And then they will return to Korea.

It was originally one concert scheduled for the 12th, but because too much people couldn't get a ticket they added one more for the 11th

Chill.. BTS only have 2 days concert at chile (11 n 12 march). Not for a months even a year. I dont know why you so freak out just for 2 days concerts. If BTS will stay n performance for a months even almost a year at there, so ur worried is understandable. No need to be freak out for just 2 days concert

if you think we're the worse fandom then you're not better than me. plus you saw that I already said sorry, that I've misunderstood so why do point on my mistake ? I already apologize, and I can't even delete my mess... so it's not like you're helping, you're just satisfying yourself.

Dear, when i reply ur comment, it ended when u said about disagreement opinion with pineaple. That time i wrote my reply. English not my native language, so i need a time to write it and posted it (and i write with phone). That why i dont know the conversation is still going while i write the reply so j dont know u are already apologize (because i still write at that time). But u are just to fast make a conclusion n judgement to accused just like u accused chille people being forced bighit to have extra concerts but in the end is because of ur misunderstand. It same case with me. U are also so fast make a conclusion that i reply for my satisfaction n said hars word to me because i posted my comment after u said apologize (meanwhile i late posted my reply because i still write it n take a time). I understand u angry because of ur misunderstood but i hope u can more becareful next time to not so fast make a judgement n conclusion before it really clear. N dont need reply with harsh word if the people still talk nicely with u

It's ok. Even i little bit surprised n upset with ur harsh word but i am glad u are not stubborn people n admit ur fault when u are realized it. That really good since not so many people admit their mistake after they know they are wrong. That make my upset are gone now^^ just i hope u can more becareful to not said a harsh word when someone is still talk nicely (because, u can just misunderstand with them but u treat them bad without knowing their situation first). And yeah... That one of bad things in allkpop that we cant deleted our post :( but i think this is would not be a huge problem or something bad. It just simply of misunderstanding and we already solved it :)
