The South Korean group BTS released their first single in English on Friday, the 21st, aiming to cheer up fans, even in a difficult period like the one imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The useless “Dynamite”, the song, described by idols as “cheerful and fun”, also won a video clip with nostalgic references from international pop culture.
Artists RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook attended a press conference held just hours before the launch, in which they explained the concept of this work. The video transmission was closed to only a few media outlets, especially Asian or American newspapers.
In the interview, Suga explained, according to the “Korea Herald” on Twitter (@Kpop_Herald), that “Dynamite” is a cheerful pop record, with a message of “confidence and happiness”. The rapper described the single as “fun”.
“We had a lot of fun working on the music. It gave us a lot of strength and we hope the music gives you strength too,” he explained.
In this regard, Jimin emphasized that his desire is to see fans happy, even though the world is facing a pandemic.
“And to be happy, you have to take care of your health. So, I hope our fans will continue to wear masks and not get sick,” he said.
Still on the impact of Covid-19, V stressed that they are also going through difficult times. He revealed that the period of social detachment was the main reason for the production of the song, which was not on BTS’s 2020 schedule.
The group reportedly went on a world tour this year, passing through several cities in the United States, as well as some countries in Europe and, of course, Asia.
