SEOUL - The 2022 Qatar World Cup kicked off on Sunday with K-pop boy band BTS’ Jungkook unveiling a tournament song during the opening ceremony.

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman and Qatari social media star Ghanim Al-Muftah started the ball rolling with their appearances. A team of dancers then performed the traditional Ardah sword dance, followed by a parade of the 32 national teams displaying their flags and mascots.

Appearing below the Qatar World Cup’s mascot La’eeb was Jungkook, 25, dressed head to toe in black. The South Korean singer jumped around the stage with dozens of dancers, singing Dreamers. Midway through Jungkook’s performance, Fahad joined in.
