From #BTSWeek to Dynamite 600 PAKs and Topping Billboard Charts:
The BTS Global Domination is Savage, Love
Every week, BTS keeps ARMY on their toes. Luckily, ARMY Magazine is here to help, especially with the busy last week! #BTSWeek, an international Perfect All-Kill, a suspicious TikTok… and a new album?! Let’s dive in!
RM kicked off the week with a Weverse post, figuring his way around the “BTS Universe Story” game. Meanwhile, ARMY awaited #DynaNite, a Fortnite-hosted debut for Dynamite choreography video. ARMYs and gamers alike could not stop raving about the explosive event. Later, the choreography MV was uploaded to BangtanTV. Mastered your high kicks yet, ARMY?
In his YouTube log, RM reflected on his love for music and growth as an artist. On the self-produced album, RM informed that it was almost ready, and made with sincerity by BTS.
BTS performed Black Swan, Make It Right and Boy with Luv at the online Lotte Duty Free Family Concert. Immediately after, BTS’ official TikTok account released an unexpected video - BTS dancing to Savage Love by Jason Derulo & Jawsh 685. Detective ARMYs soon got to business.
Namjoon dropped by Twitter to ask, “Do you know Cheongo & Mabi?”, a callback to the times he introduced us to Korean words in his “do you know” manner. J-hope tweeted a clip from the Chicken Noodle Soup set to celebrate #1YearofCNS.
Ready, set… your alarms because 12 AM KST phobia is here!
The announcement for BTS’ self-produced album, BE, dropped without warning, and BE (Deluxe Version) opened for pre-order. The upcoming album is set to release on November 20.
J-hope, swamped with ON:E online concert practice, came on YouTube to share his excitement for the stages prepared for fans. He commented on BE as an album ARMY can empathize with.
Remember the unexpected TikTok video earlier? True to detective ARMYs’ speculation, a #SavageLoveRemix ft. BTS was indeed coming. There was another surprise awaiting ARMY: The EpiBomb.Zip - A Chuseok Special!
Did you see the charts, did you see the charts?
This week, BTS scored an All-Kill on American music charts. Not only did Dynamite reclaim its #1 spot in its 5th week on Billboard Hot 100, but BTS also became the FIRST ACT EVER to chart at #1 on Billboard Hot 100, Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. US SIMULTANEOUSLY!
For Day 1 of #BTSWeek on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, BTS joined host Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for an acapella rendition of Dynamite.
Variety teased ARMY with a sneak peek of their shoot with BTS.
In coordinated fits of blues and whites, BTS performed Home for #BTSWeek Day 2.
SUGA wished ARMY a happy Chuseok and a happy Chuseok did await us.
October began with a content-filled day for ARMY. For Day 3 of #BTSWeek, the members competed in Dance Your Feeling with BTS, talked about BE and discussed their high school days. Their Black Swan performance, from the stage set-up to costumes, still leaves us speechless.
Chuseok celebration has been lively on BangtanTV! First was an episode of “2018 KBS Gayo Daechukje”, videos of the members playing basketball, the “2019 KBS Gayo Daechukje” episode, Jungkook expressing his love for ARMY with water bottles, and the stunning “‘ON’ Kinetic Manifesto Film Shooting Sketch”. The Chuseok celebration wrapped up with a focus cam of Dynamite from their #BTSWeek performance.
Episode 7 of “In The SOOP” was out. Jimin tweeted his Chuseok wishes to ARMY and thanked them for Billboard #1.
“Break The Silence: The Movie” was confirmed to release in additional countries/regions on October 15. Limited encore screenings are also open for bookings.
BTS made history again! Dynamite now holds the record for the first and only song in Korean Chart History to achieve 600 PAKs - and still counting - which makes them the artist with the most PAKs. Acing on both domestic AND international charts in the same week? Global stars!
Jungkook, SUGA and j-hope featured on Savage Love Remix, adding great depth to the track. An instrumental version was released on streaming platforms too. ARMY was treated to a typographic colorful lyric video as well!
For #BTSWeek Day 4, the group joined Jimmy Fallon for Zoom Olympics with BTS. For their performance at Gyeonghoeru Pavilion, the members lit up the dark sky with a drone show forming the ARMY logo, and wrapped up with Mikrokosmos.
BTS has been confirmed to perform Dynamite at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. They are also nominated for Top Social Artist and Top Duo/Group. Go cast your votes!
....And that’s the end of our lonnng week with BTS! Are you excited for BE? Sanitize and keep your masks on! Have a healthy week, ARMY. Until next time!
