Known for its dazzling views, the iconic skyscraper also played out songs of BTS, a seven member South Korean boy band.

Three members of this band were recently infected with coronavirus after returning to their country from the United States, their management agency said. Members RM and Jin were diagnosed with COVID-19 last Saturday, the Big Hit Music agency said in a statement. It earlier said that another member, Suga, tested positive for the virus the previous day. All three took their second jabs in August. While RM and Suga were asymptomatic, Jin had mild fever, the agency said.
The four other members of the band are J-Hope, Jungkook, V and Jimin.
From the time the band made a debut in 2013, it has got global recognition for its self-produced music and activism, which includes giving a speech at the United Nations and publicly calling out anti-Asian racism. The band topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart three times in 2020, and was nominated for prominent music awards like Billboard Music Awards and MTV Video Music Awards.
