‘BTS IS COMING’ trends as possible news of their comeback looms online

Okay, but, when is BTS never trending?

Jokes aside, ARMYs around the world are in a state of excitement and immense enthusiasm as news of BTS holding their “Permission to Dance on Stage” concerts in Seoul had been announced. Big Hit Music, the septet’s agency, broke the news on February 16, 2022, through fan community app Weverse, and said that the concerts will be held offline (in-person) and can also be viewed via online live streaming platforms.

Dates for their offline concert are on March 10 and 13 (with simultaneous live streaming) and the concert on the 12th will be broadcasted by “live streaming” in cinemas around the world. This will be BTS’ first concert in Seoul in 2 and a half years after their “BTS WORLD TOUR LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF THE FINAL” stages in October 2019.

Along with news of their soon-to-happen concert, rumors about BTS’ return with music and possible comeback started spreading on social media. Fans trended “BTS IS COMING” almost immediately, and again, when did BTS ever stop trending everyday these past few months?


This news comes after Big Hit Music’s announcement of V being the fifth member to test positive from COVID-19, after RM, Jin, Suga, and Jimin who have all recovered. This also comes after Jungkook’s single song release titled “Stay Alive”, which was produced by Suga, for their original webtoon and web novel “7 Fates: CHAKHO”.

Since the first day of its release, “Stay Alive” had been setting records left and right—becoming the fastest song by any Korean soloist in history to hit No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs chart in 80 different regions, the No. 1 spot on iTunes Top Songs in the world’s eight biggest music markets, and reached No. 1 in 98 different regions in just 24 hours.
The song also recently made history on Spotify, gaining 4,273,772 streams on its first day and set a record by entering Spotify’s daily Global Top 50 chart at No. 3.

BTS has been serving up some great news for ARMYs lately, and they’re eating it all up. Watch out for BTS’ future activities, everyone!
