Using some nifty special effects, the band captured what it’s like to be stuck inside day after day during the Covid-19 pandemic. The seven members of the group dawdled around and sang in their pajamas inside of a seemingly endless hallway of living rooms. Although dark days were apparent — RM rapped under an umbrella during an indoor thunderstorm — BTS injected some hope and optimism into the performance with a Christmas scene and a segment of them tidying up the house, making it bright and sunny for the days ahead.
Last week, BTS released their latest album BE (Deluxe Edition). The group recently hosted a week-long residency on The Tonight Show that kicked off with a performance of “Idol” outside the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, South Korea, as well as a rendition of “Dynamite” with the Roots. They then performed “Home” from the 2019 EP Map of the Soul: Persona on the Tuesday show, “Black Swan” on Wednesday, and “Mikrokosmos” and a Zoom Olympics bit on Thursday. Finally, the group closed out their residency with their disco-influenced single “Dynamite.”
