BTS is giving comfort to those who are frustrated by the Corona situation with upbeat music.
Meanwhile, a tweet from a deaf family who saw the choreography of BTS‘ new song using international sign language became a hot topic.
In the recent music video Permission to Dance that BTS released, you can see the members using similar hand gestures.
This is a performance using international sign language, which means ‘have fun’, ‘dance’, ‘peace’, etc.
On the 9th, a post on Twitter from an ARMY (a BTS fan) after watching the music video moved netizens.
The ARMY was watching a music video with her deaf cousin.
Then her brother said, “Woa they told me to dance with them.” She was moved to tears.
The sign has the meaning of ‘dance’ by moving the two fingers of the other hand from side to side on one palm.
She later added that her cousin was happy and asked a lot of questions about the members.
Netizens reacted to this post that they were deeply touched. The tweet has been retweeted by about 190,000 likes and 60,000 people.
This was literally what the members said, “‘Permission to Dance’ is a song that anyone can easily enjoy.”
Foreign media also reported that the music video of BTS, which incorporates sign language choreography, dedicated to various ages and races, ‘gives the impression of embracing the socially underprivileged, such as the deaf and blue-collar’.
On the other hand, BTS will appear on the popular talk show NBC TV ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on the 14th and 15th, and will perform ‘Permission to Dance’ and ‘Butter’ stages.
