Sept. 21, 2020 | Stephen Thompson -- We've been trying to make a BTS Tiny Desk concert happen for years now - even gaming out ways we might move Bob Boilen's desk far enough forward to accommodate the superstar Korean boy band's dance moves.
In the end, it took a global pandemic - and the launch of Tiny Desk (home) concerts back in March - to make something happen. With BTS cooped up in Seoul, the group held true to the series's spirit by convening a live band for its Tiny Desk debut, and even arranged to perform in a workspace with a music-friendly backdrop: the record store VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card in BTS's hometown.
Opening with this summer's inescapable "Dynamite" - the group's first single to hit No. 1 in the U.S., as well as its first song to be fully recorded in English - BTS leaned hard into the new track's celebratory, "Uptown Funk"-adjacent vibes. From there, the group dipped into its back catalog, seizing on the opportunity to showcase its quieter side while (mostly) staying uncharacteristically seated. The breezily propulsive "Save ME," from 2016, ultimately gave way to a full-on power ballad in 2017's reflective "Spring Day."
The latter track seemed especially true to BTS's hopeful nature: Introduced with a few optimistic words from rapper and singer RM ("It's been the roughest summer ever, but we know that spring will come"), the song reflects on a need to wait out hard times, even as the weight of present-day pain feels oppressive.
BTS had intended to spend 2020 delighting the BTS Army in arenas around the world, only to spend these last few months performing in isolation. Released on the last day of a grim season, "Spring Day" provides a nice reminder of what awaits us on the other side. We just have to get through fall and winter first.

  • Tiny Desk fans: If you’re into hip-hop, then you know that it’s inherently protest music. Listen to our new podcast, Louder Than A Riot, to hear about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. Through the stories of Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, we’ll reveal how rhyme and punishment in America have always gone hand-in-hand. Check us out at:

    • Dear NPR, Appreciate if you could include the lyrics translations for the songs, as the beauty of BTS songs are equally contributed by their music n lyrics. Spring Day (lyrics translations by I miss you Saying this out loud makes me miss you more Though I’m looking at your picture, I still miss you Time is too cruel I hate us- us who now became to find it difficult to see each other even for once It’s all winter here Even in August, winter comes My mind leaps through time Snowpiercer that is left alone Holding your hand, I go to the other side of the world I wish to end this winter How much longings must fall like snow before that spring day arrives Friend Like a tiny dust wandering in void Like a tiny dust If I were a fluttering snowflake, I would be able to reach you a little faster The flowers of snow fall And little by little, they drift apart I miss you I miss you How much longer should I wait and how many sleepless nights should I spend before I get to see you before I get to meet you Past the edge of cold winter, until the spring day comes again, until the flowers bloom, please stay there a while longer Please stay Would it be that you’ve changed or I’ve changed I hate even the time that is passing right now I guess it’s us that have changed I guess everyone has changed Yeah, I hate you Though you left even for a day, I haven’t forgotten To be honest, I miss you, but I’ll erase you now Because doing so hurts me less than resenting you I try blowing out you who aches my heart like smoke, like white smoke Though I say that I’ll erase you, I can’t actually let you go yet The flowers of snow fall And little by little, they drift apart I miss you I miss you How much longer should I wait and how many sleepless nights should I spend before I get to see you before I get to meet you You know it all You’re my best friend The morning will come again Because no darkness or no season can last forever It seems like the cherry blossoms are blooming This winter is also coming to its end I miss you I miss you If you wait a little bit, if you spend just a few sleepless nights, I’ll come to meet you I’ll come to pick you up Past the edge of cold winter, until the spring day comes again, until the flowers bloom, please stay there a while longer Please stay

  • I love BTS but people say only teenage girl like them and I am a teenage girl so boys bully about me and say I just like them to be trendy but actually am ARMY and it hurts. Ps: sorry for sharing nobody really needed to know

    • Listen to whatever you like & makes you happy, people who really care abt you will respect your music preferences. Im a 36 yo army 😊

    • Don't listen to poor boys Army support you ♥♥♥♥

  • Note to self: 6:04

    • their harmonies are so beautiful 💜👍

  • "Why do you love BTS?" they ask me. I link them this performance and somehow they understand. And I have found a lot of good music on Tiny Desk ever since BTS got featured. So it's a win-win for me!

  • Lovelys songs.

  • Love yourself Relay2476

  • 오마이갓 이즈 뻣킹 굳ㄷ

  • I miss you my boys😭😭😭😭😭💜🥺

  • I hope that do get do another concert like this sometimes, it feels more intimate and I think that they truly had a lot of fun preforming. All of them are so incredibly brilliant, please never change. I just love their smiles, I’m always smiling back like an idiot, lol.

  • I think Army gets a lot of new family members in 2020, including me. And I am upset why I didn't know them earlier. Now I hear their voice everyday, more often than hearing my own partner lol ;D

  • Мне послышалось или Чимин 10:34 крикнул - " Мы вместе, Арми! "???? 🤨😳

  • Jiminaaaaaaa💜

  • Love bts

  • The ceaseless japan regionally reject because calendar philly hum onto a truthful archaeology. low, average hydrofoil

  • During the begining of Save I noticed that JK's earpiece had colors that reminded me of one of the bisexual flag. I looked them up, and they had the same color, pattern, and shape as the flag. If im weong, please someone tell me but i just noticed it. K bye!

    • You're not wrong, but I think the design is for a different, more specific reason. In the logo, one "wing" is red, the other is blue. What color do you get you when you combine the two? Borahae 💜

  • Still coming back to this video 💜

  • Woooooow bts

  • Spring day and save me have such a special place in my heart. The connection I have made with bts songs is alarming. I love how happy they are, they look like they are reminiscing the times when they sang and made them.

  • Jhope has such a soothing voice

  • V lovely ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ V is very good

  • Love yourself Relay2471

  • As a Korean, I have a great advantage to appreciate the lyrics of "Save ME" and "Spring Day" without translation. The lyrics of both songs especially "Spring Day" is so beautiful that I couldn't stand the tears flowing when I heard this song. As RM said, we are in the toughest winter ever. "Spring Day" is the best consolation for anyone including me who are going through this the hardest time.

  • They are amazing! Their voice, personality, talent is incredible.

  • The video that made me Army. No dancing, no spectacle. Just the music, their voices and their incredibly cute energy

  • *Save Me instrumental starts* Me: *knocked out by nostalgia bomb*

  • 이거 들으면서 울컥했따... I miss guys 항상 행복하고 건강해서 코로나 잠잠해지면 만나여ㅜㅠ 적어두 막콘 때는 코로나19가 괜찮아지길 진짜 많이 보고싶어여💜💜💜

  • Missing Yoongi hours are open 🤧

  • so nice to hear purely vocals from bts! they dance so well but their vocals are underrated

  • I so love this acoustic version of them. Esp Save me 💜🤗, Spring Day of course and Life Goes On.. I wish I know them few years ago.

  • Dear NPR, Thank You Thank You Thank You, and Thank You some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Love you song💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

  • 2021 and I'm here for spring day 😭

  • Love yourself Relay2466

  • BTS has no bad songs 🙂
