Sept. 21, 2020 | Stephen Thompson -- We've been trying to make a BTS Tiny Desk concert happen for years now โ€” even gaming out ways we might move Bob Boilen's desk far enough forward to accommodate the superstar Korean boy band's dance moves.
In the end, it took a global pandemic โ€” and the launch of Tiny Desk (home) concerts back in March โ€” to make something happen. With BTS cooped up in Seoul, the group held true to the series's spirit by convening a live band for its Tiny Desk debut, and even arranged to perform in a workspace with a music-friendly backdrop: the record store VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card in BTS's hometown.
Opening with this summer's inescapable "Dynamite" โ€” the group's first single to hit No. 1 in the U.S., as well as its first song to be fully recorded in English โ€” BTS leaned hard into the new track's celebratory, "Uptown Funk"-adjacent vibes. From there, the group dipped into its back catalog, seizing on the opportunity to showcase its quieter side while (mostly) staying uncharacteristically seated. The breezily propulsive "Save ME," from 2016, ultimately gave way to a full-on power ballad in 2017's reflective "Spring Day."
The latter track seemed especially true to BTS's hopeful nature: Introduced with a few optimistic words from rapper and singer RM ("It's been the roughest summer ever, but we know that spring will come"), the song reflects on a need to wait out hard times, even as the weight of present-day pain feels oppressive.
BTS had intended to spend 2020 delighting the BTS Army in arenas around the world, only to spend these last few months performing in isolation. Released on the last day of a grim season, "Spring Day" provides a nice reminder of what awaits us on the other side. We just have to get through fall and winter first.

What is with these guys? I'm literally under a spell. I cannot get enough and I'm old enough to be their mom's best friend.

Couldn't tell them apart last month, and only know that I liked the purple and green mics. Fell in love with "Dynamite" thanks to a Samsung ad. Found them here subsequently thanks to NPR. Now I can tell them apart. Know their names. And have bought almost all of the albums listed in their discography. My husband is a bit worried as he watched me fell down the BTS rabbit hole over the past month ๐Ÿ˜…They have uplift my spirit as a very difficult year is coming to an end. Thank you BTS! Thank you NPR! ๐Ÿ’œ

I am a 45-year-old woman, I discovered by chance on YouTube the performances of bts in the grammy and I found them very talented. Since then I have fallen at his feet. They are handsome ... but above all good people, very funny and have a sweet relationship with each other. I can say that after almost two months I am an ARMY. I am passing the covid 19 and they have saved me. Thanks guys. Thanks BTS!

Live vocals with the band in the background just hits differently. This is gonna be one of my favorite perfomance for these songs by BTS. I loved it so much.

You seriously should've put an English sub so people will know how beautiful the lyrics are. BTS are also known for their meaningful and beautiful lyrics

Iโ€™ve known about BTS for ages but never listened to them for some reason. After hearing dynamite I thought why not check out the rest of their music and I donโ€™t regret it for one second! Iโ€™ve been obsessed ever since and Iโ€™ve been watching videos of them all day. Theyโ€™re so unbelievably talented!
