Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook are playing two concerts at London’s O2 arena on 9th and 10th October as part of their Love Yourself world tour.
They were the first Korean pop artists to reach number one on the US album charts, making their album Love Yourself: Tear the first number one record in 12 years that’s in a language other than English.
Are you going to the concert, or still scouring the depths of the Internet for tickets? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook @PandaRadioUK
