The music video of “With Seoul,” a promotional song for Korea’s capital sung by the pop sensation BTS, was released on the Visit Seoul website and the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s YouTube channel on Dec. 13.
The music video depicts a young woman, exhausted from her daily grind, getting revitalized after visiting Seoul’s must-visit sites, such as Namsan Mountain, Cheonggyecheon Stream, the Seoullo 7017 walkway and the Yeouido Hangang Park, all while listening to the song “With Seoul.”
BTS has been promoting Seoul as an honorary tourism ambassador for the metropolis since 2017. The promotional song has received so much attention from fans that the influx of visitors to the Visit Seoul website brought down servers on Dec. 6, the song’s release date.
