Higa, who lives in Honolulu, has spent a couple thousand dollars over the last few months just to see BTS. She flew to Los Angeles for a show in December, which exceeded her expectations – “some would say it was life-changing.” She traveled to Las Vegas this weekend for the final night of BTS’ four-night run in Sin City. She spent $600 on the flight alone.
