During the Nagoya concert on February 17, the fans presented a surprise birthday party for J-Hope, whose birthday is on February 18, touching the hearts of the members.

BTS wrapped up the concert by saying, “We will work hard to continue to present good music and performances. Like you have until now, please continue to watch us with warmth.”
