After dropping their new album 'MAP OF THE SOUL:7' to massive global success late last week, BTS will hold their album launch press conference in roughly 90 minutes from now.
Instead of holding a normal press conference in central Seoul as previously planned the boyband will broadcast it live on YouTube instead so large groups of people don't have to gather together in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The broadcast will start at 1:45PM, Korea time.
Other large-scale events and concerts by international artists like jazz superstar Kenny G and American singer Khalid are also either being postponed or cancelled.
Municipalities in South Korea have already decided to postpone regional festivals like the Jeju International Triathlon and plum blossom events.
