BTS Confirmed For Netflix’s “Bridgerton,” But ARMYs Have Mixed Reactions

It’s not the song they had hoped for.

Netflix and Shondaland‘s hit period drama Bridgerton, adapted from Julia Quinn‘s novel series, is returning with its third season this week. Season 3 focuses on fan-favorite characters Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

One thing that makes Bridgerton unique is that it features orchestral covers of pop songs. American musical group Vitamin String Quartet covers genres of music, including pop and rock, metal, emo, punk, techno, country, and hip-hop, as they reimagine popular music artists. Their covers have been featured on TV shows Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, House, and Modern Family, but several times in Bridgerton.

In 2022, Vitamin String Quartet asked ARMYs via Twitter (now X) what BTS song they would like to hear in Season 3 of Bridgerton. They hashtagged both BTS and Bridgerton.

Now that Bridgerton Season 3 Part 1 is releasing in just a few days, Netflix revealed the orchestral covers we’ll hear, and sure enough, a BTS song was listed. It’s none other than “Dynamite!”

ARMYs couldn’t be more excited. We’re really going to hear “Dynamite” this season!

Still, some were disappointed. Many felt that the BTS song included in Bridgerton should have been “Black Swan.”

“Black Swan” was the most popular choice when the Vitamin String Quartet asked ARMYs what they wanted to hear.

ARMYs are hoping that “Black Swan” might still be included, though. Only the tracklist for Part 1 was released. Part 2 will be released next month.

So, we still have hope. “Black Swan” would be amazing in Bridgerton.
