SEOUL -- BTS' lead rapper Suga has completed his solo concert in Jakarta. A total of 30,000 spectators attended the three-day event that began on May 26.
"Thank you for enjoying (my concert). Today is not the end," the 30-year-old said after completing his concert in Indonesia's capital city. The artist showcased "Haegeum," the title track of his solo album "D-Day," and other rap songs such as "Daechwita" and "August D." The BTS member also sang "Life Goes On" while playing piano simultaneously.
Suga will continue his world tour which started in April 2023. He is scheduled to interact with fans in Kanagawa, Japan from June June 2 to 4, Bangkok from June 9 to 11, and Singapore from June 16 to 18.
The artist has presented rapping skills by collaborating with many artists. He took part in "Song Request," a song by 53-year-old veteran singer Lee So-ra in 2019. The song's music video gained more than 1.3 million views in less than 24 hours. Suga also collaborated with IU, one of the most popular female artists in South Korea's entertainment scene, to release "Eight," a dance song with some 172 million views on YouTube.  

The lead rapper is also known for his donation activities. In March 2023, he donated about 100 million won ($75,301) to child earthquake victims in Türkiye and Syria through a London-based nonprofit organization. In 2022, Suga donated 100 million won to a Seoul-based disaster relief association to help residents on South Korea's eastern coast recover from a wildfire. 

In April 2023, he was also selected as the global ambassador of the National Basketball Association, a North America-based baseball league, to promote events.
