BTS (RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook) has prepared special gifts for their fans ARMY.
BTS pre-recorded Mnet’s “M!Countdown” at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul at 4 p.m. on June 13th.
4,000 audiences attended the pre-recording site. As June 13 is the 9th anniversary of BTS’s debut, BTS agency Big Hit Music and the production team of “M!Countdown” rented Jangchung Gymnasium, not CJ ENM’s building, to be able to record with more audiences.
According to the on-site audience, BTS delivered roses, group photo postcards, hand cream, lip balm with the fandom name “ARMY” engraved on the case, cookies with the new album name “Proof”, and cold brew coffee, of which they are advertising models.
Rumor has it that audiences who went to the pre-record for KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” and SBS’ “Inkigayo” were also impressed by the same gift sets. As the group reunited with their fans on domestic music show stages for the first time in two years and three months since March 2020, they seems to have prepared counter-gifts for fans who visited the site. BTS had delivered surprise gifts to fans who visited their music broadcast recording site several times even before the pandemic began.
Meanwhile, BTS’s pre-recorded stage of “M!Countdown” will air on Jun 16th. The “Music Bank” stage will be broadcast on Jun 17th and the “Inkigayo” stage will be broadcast on Jun 19th.
BTS released its new album Proof on Jun 10th.
The album’s title track “Yet To Come” has topped iTunes’ “Top Song” chart in 97 countries and regions around the world. “Proof” became the first K-pop artist to become a double million seller (a singer who sold more than 2 million single albums) on the day of its release, achieving 2.155,363 copies sold within a day of its release.
Through this album, BTS reflected on their initial commitment as an artist. BTS, who has achieved numerous proofs over the past nine years, promised to return to their early passion and make a beautiful and eternal harmony with their fans, rather than obsessing over the world’s expectations, standards, crowns and trophies.
