The group then put on low-key performances of their 2013 song “Like” from their debut album 2 Cool 4 Skool and “Just One Day” from their 2014 EP Skool Luv Affair. Both songs are classics from BTS’s discography, and it was a pleasant surprise for ARMY to see the songs performed.

After performing their old hits, BTS broke off into sub-units and performed songs from their most recent album Map of the Soul: 7. “Bang Bang Con The Live” marked the first time ARMY ever saw the songs performed, a special treat for fans who tuned into the livestream.
Jin, J-Hope, and Jungkook performed “Jamais Vu,” a song originally released on BTS’s 2019 EP Map of the Soul: Persona.

After the sub-unit songs, BTS performed “Black Swan,” the first single released from Map of the Soul: 7. Next, the group performed a remix of “Boy With Luv,” the lead single from Map of the Soul: Persona.

For the encore of “Bang Bang Con The Live,” BTS performed “Spring Day.” The song is perhaps the most comforting song in BTS’s discography, and deals with themes of loss and moving on. Given the times, fans found “Spring Day” to be the perfect ending to BTS’s “Bang Bang Con The Live.”
