The city of Gangneung in Gangwon Province has set up a replica of a bus stop featured on the cover of BTS’ full-length album “You Never Walk Alone.”

Gangneung, a city on the east coast of the country, recently built the bus stop on one of its beaches, Jumunjin. The location is the spot where the shooting of BTS’ album jacket took place.

The new bus stop will not function as an actual stop for local buses, according to the Gangneung city government. It will instead serve as a photo spot for BTS fans and tourists.

The beach has become a popular tourist attraction since it appeared in the popular tvN series “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God,” which aired from December 2016 to January 2017.

Released in February 2017, BTS’ full-length album “You Never Walk Alone” has enjoyed popularity, especially the lead track “Spring Day.”

Jumunjin Beach is scheduled to open in July.
