He explained, "The President-elect wants to hold the ceremony in such a way that it could allow people to have dreams. We are preparing for the ceremony in that direction, as it is more important to focus on the core content than just looking flashy."

Earlier on April 2, officials of Yoon Suk-yeol's transition committee visited the headquarters of BTS' management agency HYBE.

At the time, transition committee chief Ahn Cheol-soo said the visit was aimed at listening to what the upcoming administration can do for the entertainment industry.
