BTS to release first English single 'Dynamite' in August to "revitalize fans" in "this very difficult time"

BTS is back. The question is, which world record will they break this time?

The K-pop boy band phenomenon has announced its comeback this month with a digital single release on 21 August, a prelude to a new album to come in the latter half of the year. Titled 'Dynamite', the revealation of the single's name sent fans rejoicing about their explosive comeback that awaits.

Earlier last month, BTS unveiled their Japanese album Map of the Soul: 7 ~ The Journey ~, hence fans did not expect a new release to arrive this quickly.


Announced by their label Big Hit Entertainment, the upcoming single will be their first English language song sung by all members, making the comeback especially meaningful to their huge global fanbase.

"As COVID-19 continues, it is a very difficult time around the world, and we wanted to revitalize fans," said BTS on their Naver V LIVE broadcast yesterday.

The boys also hinted that the new song would be as highly anticipated as the likes of their previous single 'Mic Drop', which was remixed by Steve Aoki, and their other collaboration with Aoki 'Waste It On Me'.

BTS ARMY were overjoyed to hear the news of the confirmed comeback, as it put an end to their endless speculations about a comeback in August. Upon seeing a tweet from a Smeraldo flower shop account, which is the flower that has been featured in BTS' comebacks since 2017, fans started to theorise that BTS would be making a comeback at the end of August.

Going deeper, they found that Smeraldo translates to 'emerald' in Italian, drawing an implicit connection to Emerald City from The Wizard of Oz. Some fans even theorized that the comeback would coincide with The Wizard of Oz's movie release date on 25 August. 

If the world is short of detectives, we sure know that BTS ARMY have aplenty.
