On Thursday, September 21st, BTS had their official comeback on South Korean music television channel Mnet. Through a worldwide live broadcast, ARMYs from around the globe were able to watch the group’s performance in real time.
The comeback show came days after the group released their new EP titled Love Yourself: Her. Just a short time after debuting, the album broke several records, including topping the iTunes Charts in 73 countries, while its lead single “DNA” topped the iTunes charts in 29 countries. The release of the album also helped BTS become the first Korean act to enter the UK Album chart top 40, and Spotify’s Global Top 50 list. The music video for “DNA” was also the fastest K Pop video to reach 20 million views (about 20 hours) and is now among the list of the most viewed online videos in 24 hours.
Love Yourself: Her has surely proven to be BTS’ most successful album yet, and to celebrate its release, BTS performed three new tracks from the album on their comeback show: “Mic Drop,” “Go Go,” and lead single “DNA,” along with hits “I Need U” and “No More Dream.”
While the entire broadcast lasted almost two hours, there were a few special moments that stood out to fans (and us).
So in case you missed the show or just want to relive the performance, here are 15 of the best moments from BTS’ comeback show! (In no particular order!)
