The Truth About BTS and Music Shows

  • Not sure why some are coming for BTS's work ethic recently. Guess they are just trying to look for anything they can find to speak negatively about them. But I'm here to enlighten those who don't know why BTS haven't been on music shows lately. Last year during ON/Black Swan promotions, BTS did a series of vlives where each time they expressed their sadness about not being able to see army during music shows. They talked about how it made them feel subdued and they had a noticeable lack of energy performing without army. Jimin in particular said that all the practicing and planning they do for comebacks feels worth it when they can see army and perform for them but without that, it wasn't a true comeback. Ever since then, BTS haven't been to any music shows. With the pandemic still raging on, I wouldn't expect them to perform at these shows until it's over. So those who seem to think BTS aren't showing up because they are "privileged enough so they don't have to", I give you permission to bump this thread after the pandemic is completely over and if BTS still don't go to these shows.

  • Thanks, I feel like this thread was needed because I have seen quite a lot of misinformation or weird claims regarding BTS' non attendance of music shows these days...

    I hope they will be able to perform their new title track in music shows in front of an audience.

  • Even if they don't go on music shows, they perform on other platforms like BMA/GMA, and even give fans special performance videos of it so it's not like they are slacking off doing nothing.


    They are one of the hardest workers and work real hard for this comeback for the fans so screw the haters


    :pepe-cut::pepe-cut:

  • The nerve of people talking down on BTS' working ethic when they're one of the most consistently hard-working artists in the industry. I know we shouldn't try to argue with antis who already have hating agenda but it's still sad to see it.

  • I know exactly who OP is referring to. That comment was totally uncalled for.

    Is he.....you know?

  • Thank you for this.


    I feel really sad for tannies because they always want to have shows and/or concerts with Armys there. :-(

    exactly this. they looked visibly depressed during ON/Black Swan promotions because of army not being there and every interview, vlive, twitter post since have just been them obsessing over the next time they can see the fans. They were hit even harder when the ON:E concert had the live portion cancelled (like I was seriously worried for their well-being). So i just wanted to set the record straight for people who didn't know this about BTS.

  • thank you op for this. I'm tired of seeing people questioning their work ethics in guise of "concern" because they dont promote on music show for 3 comebacks now.


    For me personally I really like it this way because we get better camera work, better stage design, better direction and better performance overall when bighit use their usual crew for performance recording compared to their music shows performances. How i wish I can get a black swan performance with zanybros as their director...

  • They may not have done music shows but they certainly have done tons of other performances as well as interviews. People trying to question their "effort" are completely foolish. And yes, they are the hardest working group in showbiz. This is a play off of James Brown's words about himself. It's a figure of speech. This is not a saying to disparage other group's hard work but to acknowledge BTS'. BTS have made it to the top but still work like they're at the bottom. They don't take anything they've achieved for granted.

  • exactly this. they looked visibly depressed during ON/Black Swan promotions because of army not being there and every interview, vlive, twitter post since have just been them obsessing over the next time they can see the fans.

    This.


    Also, I remembered that sma 2019 (they didn't have to go since it's not an attendance award) where they were hella tired due to back to back concerts but still performed there. :pepe-sad:

  • They even went on Korean VS for fans this year since they couldn't perform. Even if they do not go to a single music show in the future, it won't change anything. They gave us like 50 DIFFERENT AND VARIED Dynamite performances already.

    And If the criteria for winning in music shows does not include attendance then this shouldn't even be the topic in the first place. :pepelove2:


    But all of this is pointless for the people who are so obsessed on hating BTS and everything they do. The same user was mocking bts for releasing remixes and now their faves are doing the same and I don't hear a peep:pepe-cringe:

    For legal reasons: many of the things I say are said jokingly, take them as such :wilds::oks:
