Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 16) — ARMY, you have to scream the fan chant internally if you're attending the "BTS Permission to Dance On Stage - Seoul" concerts in March.

Fans are not allowed to cheer loudly, yell, chant, and stand up during the three-day concert to follow South Korea's COVID-19 protocols, the group's fan club manager announced on Wednesday via the Weverse app.

Attendees will be provided noise-making clappers before entering the Seoul Olympic Stadium. Fans can send in short messages to BTS and the slogans — which will remain a secret from the boys until the concert — will be displayed in front of the clappers.

BTS, arguably the biggest boy band globally, will be holding the concert on March 10, 12, and 13. The concerts on the 10th and 13th will be streamed online for a fee, while there will be a global theater live-viewing for the one on the 12th.

The group's entertainment company BigHit Music said the in-person performance will comply with seat spacing guidelines. It added the event may be changed or canceled depending on the COVID-19 situation in the country.

South Korea is currently battling an Omicron-driven surge, reporting 90,443 new COVID-19 infections on Wednesday.

Five of the seven members of BTS have contracted the virus in the past three months, with V as the most recent member to test positive for COVID-19.
