BTS’s Jung Kook Performs “Dreamers” at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022

     More than billions around the globe watched Qatar World Cup 2022’s opening ceremony on Novemer 20th. The 30-minute opening ceremony amazed the thousands in attendance and in the center of this show, there was Jung Kook from Korean supergroup BTS. Jung Kook released his new single as part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup soundtrack and the music video to “Dreamers” was released on 22nd on FIFA’s official YouTube channel.

     People of different nationalities, races, faiths and orientations gathered in Qatar, and around screens on all continents to share the same exciting moments.

     As the lights went off and music hit the stage, the K-pop superstar took the stage at Qatar’s Al Bayt Stadium on Sunday. The song “Dreamers” also features Qatari singer and producer Fahad Al-Kubaisi. During the stage, Jung Kook was dressed in all black and surrounded by a group of dancers. This inspirational track is not only a part of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 soundtrack but also includes contributions from world-renowned artists like Maluma, Davido, Nicki Minaj, Myriam Fares and so many others.

     After his stage, the crowd bursted with shouting and cheers. Shortly before kick-off, prior to the teams entering the stadium, FIFA President Gianni Infantino also addressed the fans inside the stadium. “Family of footall. Welcome to Al-Bayt Stadium. Dear friends, welcome to Qatar. Welcome to the World Cup. Welcome to your home. Welcome to celebrate football, because we all know that football unites the world,” he said.

     Jung Kook, 25, is the youngest member of BTS. “Dreamers,” Jung Kook’s third solo this year alone, follows his February’s “Stay Alive” which was produced by his bandmate Suga and “Left&Right” with Charlie Puth.

     However, like other artists, Jung Kook has been criticized for his participation in the World Cup in Qatar, mainly due to the human rights violations in that country. From controversies over Qatar’s discrimination against women and the community of LGBT to the reported deaths of many migrant workers who helped build the stadiums where the World Cup will take place, Qatar World Cup is under controversies and criticisms against human rights. Because of this, many expected attendees and celebrities boycotted the month-long soccer competition.
