BTS lit up Seoulâ€™s night sky during their new, never-before-seen performance of â€œButterâ€ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (July 14) as part of their two-night takeover.
Donned in black and white button-up shirts, the boy band showed off their moves across the brightly lit yet unopened World Cup Bridge in their hometownâ€™s Mapo District. The bridge was originally planned to open back in August 2015 but has seen delays; it is scheduled to finally be unveiled next month.
Also on Wednesday nightâ€™s episode of Fallon, BTS delivered their debut performance of their new single â€œPermission to Dance.â€
The two-night takeover marked their third appearance on The Tonight Show. BTS previously rocked on the show for a whole week straight from September 28 to October 2 in 2020, performing hits like â€œDynamiteâ€ and â€œBlack Swan.â€ In February that year, they performed â€œOnâ€ in New Yorkâ€™s Grand Central Terminal. Their first-ever appearance on the show occurred in September 2018, where the group performed â€œIdolâ€ and did the Fortnite dance challenge with Fallon.
As BTS has been dominating the charts with their hot summer single â€œButter,â€ Alan Bjerga, the chief of communications for the American Butter Institute, even praised the song with excitement.
â€œMy main reaction was, â€˜Great!â€™ It obviously doesnâ€™t hurt to have your product associated with the top bandâ€™s song of the summer,â€ Bjerga recently told Billboard. â€œLike BTS says, â€˜itâ€™s smoothâ€¦â€™ The future of U.S. butter sales is in exports, and to have arguably the biggest band on the globe giving a thumbs-up in song canâ€™t be anything but good.â€
â€œButterâ€ has been currently topping No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for the past seven weeks and still counting.
