As a part of World Expo 2030, BTS will perform for free on October 15 at Busan Asiad Main Stadium. There have apparently been a number of problems before the concert, from locating a venue to a limited budget. The group's agency, HYBE, commented on them in a fresh statement, adding that their business will personally be paying the remaining costs.

HYBE stated in a statement to Newsen that the company will use its own money to invest in the concert. On the other side, they also claimed that BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook will be performing for free because they had previously hoped to conduct a concert for their fans, the BTS ARMY, without charging admission. In part of the statement, it was stated that "first of all, in response to media inquiries about the cost of the Busan Concert, we have stated that there will be significant costs, and a significant portion of this cost will be covered by corporate sponsorship, online streaming advertisements, and The City project ancillary business."
The statement went on to say, "Additionally, it was disclosed that the business had made the decision to pay the shortfall directly since it was unable to be covered by these other means of raising money. It will be done in a way that genuinely symbolises the artist's desire to play for many fans for free in the past. BTS will also make an appearance at this concert without charging extra.
HYBE continued by saying that BTS has always carefully considered government support, which comes from tax payers, rather than the expense when taking part in national events in the past. The agency stated that even though the government is working within a tight budget to finance and offer a venue for the event, they do not believe significant sums of money should be invested in or used up by the BTS concert. "HYBE and BTS want to give Busan more support as it prepares to hold the 2030 Busan World Expo, "They encapsulated it.
