BTS are no complete strangers to iconic MTV efficiencies. Last August at the VMAs, they practically spanned the world for a neon-centric rendition of No. 1 hit “Dynamite,” making the occasion a suit-and-tie affair as they moved through its three minutes of disco-pop. Their most current endeavor with MTV promises to be a bit more stripped-down, but similarly renowned.

That’s because few efficiencies are more iconic than MTV Unplugged

On Tuesday, February 23, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook will bring their collective energy to an upgrade of the storied series directly from Seoul, South Korea. MTV Unplugged Provides: BTS airs that night at 9 p.m. ET, and you won’t wish to miss it.

The unique promises to bring fans a new look at the group’s most current album, Be, which dropped in November. It boasted the No. 1 singles “Life Goes On” and “Dynamite”– the latter of which RM hoped might “be your energy,” as he informed MTV News in August ahead of the VMAs.

Back in February 2020, the Seoul septet stopped by MTV’s Fresh Out Live to commemorate the release of their album Map of the Soul: 7– The Journey and informed MTV News about the real-life inspiration behind the determination found in the songs. “You may believe our lives are actually glorious or actually expensive and that we live the high life, but actually we also face our own shadows in our lives and in the work that we do,” Suga said at the time.

This most current MTV Unplugged special follows one from Miley Cyrus that aired in October 2020 and was filmed as part of her Backyard Sessions. Previously in 2020, throughout lockdown, the series brought a number of MTV Unplugged At Home specials to life also.

Take a look at the interesting teaser for BTS’s triumphant series launching above, then mark your calendars: MTV Unplugged Provides: BTS hits MTV on Tuesday, February 23 at 9 p.m. ET.
