BTS just premiered the first live performance of their single “Black Swan” and words are a little hard right now.
The global sensations have had quite the week, making history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the Grammys and have now taken over the Late Late Show with James Corden to show off the choreography of their latest track “Black Swan”. Fans have been anticipating the group’s comeback ever since the performance video for the song dropped on the 17th of January.
Post-Corden appearance has brought on a surge of information, and we’re just here trying to process it all. First things first, ARMY is in for a treat as the group has confirmed an appearance in the famous Corden’s Emmy-winnings segment “Carpool Karaoke”. The seven-member group also shared the couch with Hollywood A-Lister Ashton Kutcher and played a game of hide and seek, subsequently making Kutcher appear fourth on a list of worldwide trends.
The boys finally took the stage as musical guests on the episodes, clad in flowing black outfits, dancing the entirety of the piece completely barefoot. The style of dance is as experimental as the song is for the group, being completely interpretive in style. Being from the K-Pop industry means mastering the art of performance as a whole, and with their show today, the mastery is real, peeps.
The group also began this week with a bang, tying with Justin Bieber on the Social 50 Chart for most weeks at No.1, making them the first artists to do so. Justin’s social media presence has spanned over his 11 year career, and has always been a big part of his impact in the pop landscape.
Just a fair warning in case you hadn’t noticed, BTS and their ARMY mean business, so now would be a good time to take them seriously.
