BTS held its 100-minute long online concert from 6 PM(KST), with the theme of inviting its dedicated fan ARMY into the band's room and performing for them.
The band performed 12 songs in total, kicking off with the powerful 2015 track 'Dope,' followed by its biggest hits including 'Black Swan' (2020), 'Boy With Luv' (2019) and 'Spring Day' (2016).
Back in April, BTS organized the first 'Bang Bang Con' which attracted over 50 million fans for at least a few moments and led the agency Big Hit Entertainment to work on the next edition.
'Bang Bang Con' offered six different views of the performance on one screen, allowing viewers to toggle between different angles. Developed by Big Hit Entertainment and U.S. video solution start-up Kiswe, the setup allowed viewers to see the stage in full as well as each member up-close.
