BTS’s December 2019 Schedule Proves They’re Not Slowing Down Anytime Soon
We may not have any official news in regards to the next comeback, but BTS’s December 2019 schedule proves ARMY is going to be feasting for the rest of the year.
As it’s now midway through the month, the South Korean band already graced us with their presence at the Melon Music Awards (MMA 2019), Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA 2019), and Jingle Ball. However, the septet — RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — isn’t slowing down before ringing in 2020.
Moving forward, BTS will attend other year-end shows like SBS Gayo Daejeon, KBS Gayo Daechukje, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in New York City. And basically, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. So get ready.
BTS began their December 2019 schedule with year-end shows
Prior to the new month, BTS kicked off their December 2019 schedule with MMA 2019 on Nov. 30. The group performed a magnificent 37-minute set, filled with hits like RM’s “Intro: Persona,” “Boy In Luv,” “Boy With Luv,” and “Dionysus.” BTS also achieved their first “Daesang All Kill” at MMA 2019, where the band won every major award.
Merely four days later, BTS — once again — swept up all the major awards. Only this time, it was at MAMA 2019. The seven members also performed a medley of songs, including “N.O,” “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2,” “Mikrokosmos,” “Boy With Luv,” “and “Dionysus.”
Then on Dec. 6, BTS flew to Los Angeles and performed at iHeartRadio’s 102.7 KIIS FM’s 2019 Jingle Ball, where the boys were greeted by a sea of purple while performing “MIC Drop,” “Make It Right,” and “Boy With Luv” with special guest Halsey.
