“Kenyan BTS ARMY are winning everyday and the dream of BTS coming to Kenya for a concert are becoming more real.

The dream is becoming more real as BTS announced that they will have their first live in person concert in Los Angeles which is the first city on that board in the “Permission to Dance” music Video.

On 2nd October on KBS BTS announced that there would be a special documentary about “Hangul (한글, Korean alphabet)” on 10/9 (Hangul Day, national Korean commemorative day marking the invention of Hangul) from KBS TV.

In one of the clips, Kenyan ARMY appeared singing holding placards written in Korean and a clip of the fans singing “Happy Birthday JungKook in Korean is included in the documentary. To say that Kenyan ARMY is proud is an understatement.

The Korean Alphabet Day, known as Hangeul Day (한글날) in South Korea, and Chosŏn’gŭl Day in North Korea, is a national Korean commemorative day marking the invention and the proclamation of Hangul (한글; 조선글), the alphabet of the Korean language, by the 15th-century Korean monarch Sejong the Great. It is observed on October 9 in South Korea and on January 15 in North Korea. Excluding the years 1990 to 2012, when the government maximized business days to expedite industrial growth, Hangul day has been a national holiday in South Korea since 1970.

Every 9 October is selected as Hangeul Day to spread its originality and excellence in addition to commemorating Sejong the King’s achievement. Even in 2020, citizens hoist the Korean national flag to honor the day. Hangeul is one of few writing systems where both the founder and founding date have been revealed

In South Korea, the holiday is called Hangeul Proclamation Day, or Hangeul Day for short, and is celebrated on October 9 to commemorate the promulgation of the Hunminjeongeum on October 9, 1446
