During this year’s Melon Music Awards, which was held on Saturday, December 1, the Korean sept. BTS lied into the traditional elements of their random “Idol” for an ultimate fusion of modernity and classical Korean performances.
The culmination of a 20 minute set from the popular group opened the night’s performance of “Idol” with an intro that featured traditional instrument and dance elements. It strongly influenced Korea’s samulnory percussion and talchum-masked dance traditions such as J-Hope, Jimin and Jungkook performed intricate choreography, flanked by artists who drummed and danced with fans and masks. Later, the four other members of BTS ̵
1; RM, Jin, Suga and V – performed on stage with the trio to perform a single edition of the August single.
All BTS had clothes containing Korean traditional male books, similar to those carried in the song’s music video.
The group also performed theatrical performances of “Fake Love” and “Airplane Pt. 2”.
During the Melon Music Awards, BTS was awarded seven awards, most ever during the show, including the year’s best artist and best album, for Love Yourself: Tear .
