BTS' Gig Live-Streamed Around the World

Saturday night's BTS' concert was watched by 60,000 people at Wembley Stadium in London and over 140,000 around the world via live stream.

Millions of comments in scores of languages came in over the course of the concert, which garnered over 100 million "likes". The concert was streamed via Korean website V Live.

BTS fans known as "the Army" all around the world came to worship their idols and wrote millions of comments even before the concert began.

Korea's largest portal site Naver, which operates V Live, said the service cost W33,000 to watch, but that did not deter fans (US$1=W1,191). In July last year, BTS became the first stars in the history of V Live to accumulate over 10 million followers.

Hundreds of chats flowered in Korean, Chinese, English, Japanese, Arabic, Russian and Swedish. Naver said the biggest numbers who live-streamed the gig from abroad were in the U.S., followed by Japan, Taiwan and China.
