K-Pop superstars Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook of the supergroup BTS delighted millions of fans from around the world with the staging of “Bang Bang Con 21,” which streamed on the group’s official YouTube channel, BANGTANTV.
The online event, which held Saturday, drew a whopping 2.7 million concurrent viewers, or the total number of people who watched it simultaneously at its peak.
The South Korean act even topped its record of 2.24 million concurrent viewers during its first Bang Bang Con held in April last year.
“Bang Bang Con 21” is a special gift by BTS to fans amid the “untact” (non face-to-face) era due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic under which social distancing is being implemented.
“As BTS faced the ‘untact (non-face-to-face) era’ due to the Corona 19 pandemic, they led a new performance culture with an online streaming festival,” the group’s management said in a statement.
“Bang Bang Con 2021” also ended with 22,248,241 views from ARMYs who tuned in to watch their favorite boys’ performances as well as more than 3 million tweets, according to World Music Awards.
The online concert was staged just a day after Guinness World Records confirmed that the group’s smash hit “Dynamite” broke multiple world records including the most-viewed YouTube video in 24 hours as well as the most-viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours and the most-viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.
