"It will remain in history". BTS' performance in COVID-19.

The boy group BTS (BTS) performance, which was held amid concerns over the novel coronavirus infection disease (COVID-19), was safely held thanks to the organizers' preparations and cooperation of fans.

BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE-SEOUL was held at the main stadium of Jamsil Stadium in Olympic-ro, Songpa-gu, Seoul at 7 p.m. on the 10th. Due to the rapid spread of the Omikron mutation epidemic, the performance was held half-worried and half-expected, but thanks to the organizers' preparations for quarantine and fans' efforts, a safe concert was completed.

The performance was held after the temporary suspension of the quarantine pass. Accordingly, it was possible to enter the concert hall without checking the quarantine pass at the site. However, body temperature measurements were made at the entrance, and organizers announced that additional tests such as self-examination kits and inability to enter the concert hall could be taken if abnormal body temperature targets are found at the site.

After measuring the body temperature, the audience who entered the concert hall received clappers. The clapper distributed in the form of placards was used as a cheering tool in the field. Thanks to this, the audience applauded instead of cheering and enjoyed the performance, reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection. Suga saw fans who responded by clapper instead of cheering after watching the stage, and said, "I think we will remember this for the rest of our lives because it's our first time performing like this," and added, "Please shout out loud in our hearts." In addition, the shouts of fans recorded in advance were heard inside the concert hall, filling the 2% regrettable part and raising the atmosphere to the fullest.

Distancing was also carried out at the site, and 750 people, or 5% of the 15,000 visitors, were quarantined and managed. Fans also actively cooperated with the organizers' guidance. Thanks to this, the audience was able to enjoy the performance in a safer environment. At the beginning of the concert, RM saw the clapper fans and said, "Isn't it a concert that will remain in history?" and Suga, who met the fans closer on the mobile stage, commented, "I was touched by the orderly appearance of ARMYs."

At the end of the performance, the BTS members expressed their feelings about meeting fans and performing face-to-face after a long time through COVID-19. J-Hope said, "I didn't know when the coronavirus would end, so I kept waiting for you for two and a half years." He then said, "I've been doing online concerts and various things to let ARMY know what I've been up to, but I think the performance is completed only when the audience is together." V was applauded for saying, "Next time, I have a goal to hear the voices of ARMY."

Jungkook said, "I missed you so much and I'm so happy now," adding, "I can't hear your expressions and voices, but I hope you had a happy time because of us." Jimin was like, "What should I do because I can't hear your voice?" and saw you play the clapper. "It's a mess," he said, drawing laughter. RM said, "I thought it was natural when I met people and ran, but it was hard because I didn't have it," adding, "I put my soul into the performance." "How fun would it be if I look back?" "I hope it was a performance that gave you the best snacks," he said.

The face-to-face concert in Korea is the first time in two and a half years since "BTS World Tour Love Yourself: Speak Yourself [The Final]" (BTS WORLD TOUR LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF [THE FINAL]) in October 2019. This performance is part of the BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE series that connects online and LA concerts in October last year, and as it is the first face-to-face concert in Seoul in a long time, an upgraded version of the performance took place from the first day.

The key point of the concert, which focused on the "meeting" between BTS and fans, along with the message in "permission to dance," is that the message contained in the song is realized in Seoul. BTS carefully selected songs that BTS had never shown in face-to-face performances at this concert, songs that BTS wanted to show to fans, and songs that fans would want to see from the first day.

Meanwhile, BTS will continue its performance of BTS Permission to Dance on Stage-Seoul from the 12th to the 13th. The last day's performance can also be seen through live streaming.
