The 30-minute special broadcast BTS @ Radio 1, due to air on Wednesday July 28 at 10:35pm, will be hosted by Adele Roberts and focus on the meteoric rise in K-pop's popularity on a global scale, spearheaded by the Korean boyband.
BTS @ Radio 1 will feature three exclusive performances from J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga and V that also act as their BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge debut. The seven-piece will perform Top 3 single Dynamite, the Ed Sheeran-penned Permission to Dance and a cover of Puff Daddy & Faith Evans' I'll Be Missing You.
Fans will be able to hear the performances first on BBC Radio 1 the day prior to the televised transmission on Tuesday July 27.
In addition to reliving the moment she gave BTS their first UK airplay in 2017 and her visit to Seoul in 2018, Adele Roberts will conduct an exclusive interview with the band, who will connect South Korea where the performances are also taking place.
BTS have scored seven UK Top 40 singles to date and claimed two Number 1 albums Map of the Soul: Persona and Map of the Soul: 7.
