The Bangtan Boys, aka BTS, just performed at the most-awaited MTV Unplugged. Can ARMYs keep calm? Of course not! After all, the K-Pop singers once again hooked their fans with their soulful and energetic performances; even it was in a small and cosy room. Distanced from fans, (only virtually) each member of BTS shared some anecdotes, beautiful words and expressed how they miss entertaining their fans in person. “Blue & Grey,” “Telepathy,” “Life Goes On,” “Dynamite,” and more, ARMY is falling in love with BTS, all over again. Besides, there was a surprise too—a special cover of Coldplay’s Fix You. Fans are in bliss, and they are so happy that they are “crying,” (happy tears, of course).
Ahead of the unplugged, MTV hosted a 24-hour free livestreaming titled, “Best of BTS,” on YouTube. A series of some of the most memorable performances of the boy band was shown and some interviews too. At MTV Unplugged, BTS served a treat for their fans. RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook performed two tracks from the hit album “BE,” “Telepathy,” “Blue & Grey,” “Dynamite,” while covering Coldplay’s “Fix You.” Well, this came in as a total surprise.
The episode began with the boys performing, “Telepathy.” BTS dressed in colourful outfits to match the theme of the song, sang hit track in a room arranged with cosy elements. Jimin expressed his happiness over the members performing together, after so long, while referring to Suga’s absence from live performances because of his shoulder surgery. Now he is back, and fans are too thrilled!
