K-pop super band BTS cheered up its fans and audiences across the world with a special performance on a US TV show, broadcast from the band’s own studio in South Korea, in a time of social distancing over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Italian singer Andrea Bocelli, British pop diva Dua Lipa and American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish were among the other global singers and entertainers who connected from their own homes for the one-hour special episode. “It’s a difficult time for everyone in the world, but we see people are showing solidarity, consideration, and support for each other,” team leader RM said on the show.

“Social distancing is so crucial (right now). We are so grateful we can connect with you from here. It may seem we are isolated, but we are so connected with shared experiences, courage, and laughter,” RM said in his message to fans. Member V added, “I wish I could see and meet with you very soon.” J-Hope also reported to fans that “we are doing well.”
As the video call with BTS was broadcast from a small dance studio in the band’s home country in South Korea, the band members appeared in sweat pants, slippers or other comfortable outfits to give a distance performance of their global hit song, “Boy With Luv.” The special episode was designed as the continuing new coronavirus pandemic suspended concerts and other public gatherings while keeping people at home for self-quarantine. It was BTS’ fifth appearance on James Corden’s late-night show. (Yonhap)
