BTS' hugely successful stadium tour will have a lot to do with the huge jump in profit. This years tour is going to be even bigger, so profits are likely to grow even further. It's incredible to see BigHit grow from being on the brink of failure to this!

This year will be even bigger, I guess. Bang Shihyuk is a clever businessman and it's the best time for investments. I can't imagine their profits in 5 years when they'll have ~3 more groups.
