What the BTS members thought about ‘Permission to Dance On Stage – Seoul’

Due to guidelines surrounding the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in-person attendance at Permission to Dance On Stage – Seoul was limited. Fans attending in person were also not allowed to chant or shout and instead had special clappers to cheer on the band.

In a VLIVE livestream, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook gave their perspective on what the concerts were like for them as performers. Jin was not able to attend the VLIVE after undergoing surgery.

“I did go into it having prepared against it but… But it took two or four times more effort to bring our excitement up for the show,” Suga said of the concerts.

Jimin added, “I took my in-ear headphones off in the middle. With them on, we’re all excited and loud but without them, it’s dead quiet. I was like, ‘No way, I should keep it on.'”
