BTS performed some 30 songs during their final Japanese concert at Fukuoka, some of which, including "IDOL," "I NEED U," "RUN," "DNA" and "FAKE LOVE," were presented in the Japanese language.

Japanese fans erupted in applause, singing along with the medley of BTS hit songs in unison, Big Hit said.

BTS addressed the fans, saying "We thank you for making us excited and happy up to the very last concert. We are here thanks to you. Fans are the reason we can come on stage."

Following the Japanese leg, BTS will move on to Hong Kong for performances set for March 20-21 and 23-24 at the global city's Asia World Expo Arena. The following stop is Thailand, where BTS is to perform at the Rajamangala National Stadium from April 6-7. Tickets for the two stops were sold out far ahead of the performance dates.
