Another fan said: “So ‘yet to come Hyundai ver’ is the World Cup song? Another fan said: “I really want to know when and where bts said they will release a new song for FIFA World Cup. It was always a Hyundai project, you just took the world ‘fifa’ and ran away with it.”
One fan clarified: “Ytc is the song for Hyundai’s goal of the century campaign and bts will be part of the FIFA World Cup soundtrack with a brand new song.” Another fan said: “The World Cup song has already been decided. BTS One was never meant to be an official song but the one that Hyundai would promote during the Samsung?? ads, only I saw a lot of local people who knew Dynamite.”
Another fan said: “Is ytc suitable for FIFA World Cup? I mean, it’s a soft ballad song for the army. BTS plzz release a new song for FIFA not ytc.” Another fan said: “Ok so BTS only released one song as Hyundai ambassador all the time not the world cup itself? And it was never confirmed that it’s a new song too?
