BTS recently held a live concert for fans called Bang Bang Con, and it’s been estimated to have raked in tens of billions of won in revenue.
According to BigHit Entertainment, the online concert was attended by 756,600 fans from 107 different countries including Korea, the US, England, Japan, China, and more.
And the price of the concert was 29,000 won (~$24 USD) for members and 39,000 won (~$32 USD) for non-members.
By making a rough estimate with an average between the two fees, it’s predicted that BTS made 26 billion won (~$22 million USD)from that one concert alone.
This comes as no surprise since the world-famous group sang many hit songs such as “Dope”, “Boy With Luv”, “Spring Day”, and many more.
Furthermore, BTS alternated between 5 different rooms and 2 stages as they showed off a spectacular live performance that surely didn’t disappoint.
With the success of BTS’s online concert in the midst of COVID-19, other artists are expected to have a go at it in hopes to yield similar results.
