Here’s What Fans Can Expect From BTS’s “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – SEOUL,” According To The Show’s Director

He spilled spoilers on the setlist!

ARMYs worldwide are counting down the days until BTS takes to the stage again for their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE shows in Seoul.

After the success of their shows in LA at the end of last year, fans have been anticipating what to expect from the three shows at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium.


During the past few weeks, fans have been trying to get hints about what they can expect from the shows. While Suga shared his tips for getting tickets and how they’ve prepared for it, Jin revealed some of the honest truths about the show and that “Super Tuna” will not be played #sad.


On March 8, ARMYs were ecstatic after the director of the Seoul shows Ha Jung Jae shared some spoilers with the media.

As it’s the first show in front of fans in Korea since before the pandemic, Ha Jung Jae shared that the group’s priority was to focus on the fans. For this, the production has created large LED screens which are the biggest that has ever been used.

For these concerts, we thought it would be most important for the artist to be able to look into the fans’ eyes while singing, and take a closer step to the fans.

More importantly, the article shared the ins and outs of picking the setlist and choosing songs for the shows.

Ha Jung Jae shared that the process of picking songs was much different from previous times. The setlists were focused on the albums released in the past, but this time, anything was possible.

We put all of BTS’s songs on the table – songs they’ve never performed publicly before, songs the members want to perform for the fans, songs fans may want to see, and more, and discussed it with the members.

If that wasn’t enough, it seems like so much thought is being put into the shows that there will actually be different setlists for each of the shows. In particular, they will be very different from those performed during the LA shows in December.

The Seoul concerts include newly prepared songs that were not performed at the past LA concerts. For these 3 PTD IN SEOUL concerts, BTS will meet fans with a richer repertoire by changing the setlist for each concert.

Although there weren’t many details on what specific songs fans could expect, aside from those heard by ARMYs during rehearsals, Ha Jung Jae shared that BTS picked two particular songs because of the canceled shows in 2020, and they are two classics!

The members picked ‘ON’ and ‘Black Swan’ as the songs to compensate & soothe fans due to the cancelation of the concerts due to Covid-19 back in 2020.

With only two days left until the first of the shows, it will be exciting to see what BTS has in store. After their previous shows, both online and offline, there are no limits to what fans will see, and the members will undoubtedly pour their “Blood, Sweat & Tears” *mind the pun* into the shows.
