Come October, BTS will be the first Korean artist in history to receive a prestigious Dubai Star!
The Dubai Stars project is the equivalent of the US Walk of Fame and it will pay homage to stars from various fields, such as music, sports, and literature. In March, it was announced that the walk will be located on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in downtown Dubai.
A grand total of 10,000 stars will earn a place on the walk, but initially the first 400 Dubai Stars will be unveiled in October. These 400 stars, which include BTS, footballer Lionel Messi, poet Khalil Gibran, Saudi singer Abdul Majeed Abdullah, designer Elie Saab, and actor Shah Rukh Khan, were voted for by the public.
The Dubai Stars announced BTS’s Dubai Star on July 1, and fans are thrilled!
