Sept. 21, 2020 | Stephen Thompson -- We've been trying to make a BTS Tiny Desk concert happen for years now - 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 - and the launch of Tiny Desk (home) concerts back in March - 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" - 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 - 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.

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.

  • Tiny Desk fans: If you’re into hip-hop, then you know that it’s inherently protest music. Listen to our new podcast, Louder Than A Riot, to hear about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. Through the stories of Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, we’ll reveal how rhyme and punishment in America have always gone hand-in-hand. Check us out at:

  • 평소에 좋아하는 가수들의 라이브를 들으려고 NPR music을 거의 매일매일 찾아듣는다. 그럴 때마다 여기서 공연하면 정말 행복하겠다, 정말 실력 있고 자신의 음악을 하는 사람들만 공연할 수 있구나라고 생각하고 있었는데 방탄소년단이 이렇게 무대를 하니 정말 많이 성장했다고 생각한다. 단지 아이돌이라는 이유로 멤버들의 재능이 과소평가되고 무시당하는 일이 일상이었는데 방탄소년단의 진심을 알아주는 것 같아 기쁘다. 한국사람들도 편견을 버리고 보다 넓은 시야로 다양한 장르를 들었으면 좋겠고 방탄소년단을 오직 돈을 벌기 위한 수단으로 생각하지 않고 자신들만의 음악을 하며 한국을 대표하는 자랑스러운 우리나라의 아티스트로 인정해주었으면 좋겠다. 다이너마이트로 인해 한국 대중들의 시각도 조금 달라졌지만 돈이 목적인 회사들로 인해 피폐해진 우리나라의 안타까운 음악시장에서 밝게 빛났으면 좋겠다 방탄소년단 화이팅!
