A TV special about BTS airs July 28 and will follow the boyband’s rise to superstardom as the best-selling musical group in South Korean history.
Airing exclusively on BBC One, the group will make their debut on the channel’s Radio 1 Live Lounge, performing three tracks: their new song “Permission to Dance,” last year’s release “Dynamite” and a cover of Puff Daddy and Faith Evans’ 1997 remastered version of the The Police original, “I’ll Be Missing You.”
The group posed in color-coordinated outfits for a promotional photo for the upcoming special.
