BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – SEOUL’. With a total of 45,000 attendees at the offline concerts across three days, BTS’ first in-person shows in over two and a half years in Seoul, South Korea, were certified successes.

Not only this, but the show on March 12 was special for another reason. BTS introduced a live viewing medium for fans all over the world to watch the show together, in over 3,711 cinemas in 75 countries/regions. According to reports, ‘BTS Permission to Dance on Stage – Seoul: Live Viewing’ earned 6.9 million USD, becoming the top-grossing live cinema event of all time. Further, the live screenings shot ahead of ‘The Batman’ in 55 North American theatres, and the cinema event was a clear number two in the rest of its locations.https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.504.0_en.html#goog_544961043

Along with this, BTS also has something else to celebrate today! Last year, BTS crossed 1 billion streams on Spotify with their song ‘Dynamite’, becoming the first Korean act to reach this mark. Their first full English song, ‘Dynamite’ hit this milestone in less than a year since its release in August 2020, and also became BTS’ first-ever Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit. 

Earlier today, BTS shared a hilarious video of the members making and eating bibimbap straight from their Spotify 1 Billion plaque, complete with a fried egg in the shape of the group’s logo perched on top.
