All seven members of BTS will get together to appear in Seoul Metropolitan Government’s promotional video, according to┬áSeoul Tourism Organization on Monday.

The announcement was part of the organization director Gil Ki-yeon’s presentation on marketing methods to bolster tourism in Seoul.

It will be the band’s first activity as a whole group since the members announced a temporary break from group activities last month.

The clip is scheduled to be filmed in August. It will be uploaded on various social media outlets and YouTube.

Specifics on what BTS will be recording have not yet been made public.

Since 2016, BTS has been an honorary ambassador for tourism in Seoul. For this role, the band features in the capital’s promotional advertisements and music videos.

The promotional clip from 2020 titled “BTS – With Seoul” recorded over 500 million views on YouTube. Another music video clip that was released last year under the title “EoGiYeongCha Seoul BTS” saw over 560 million views.

“The video that BTS participated in recorded over 100 million views within just nine days,” said Gil. “We hope to once again spread the charms of Seoul to people around the world with BTS.”
