BTS’ online concert MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E Day 1 saw Jungkook leaving us shooketh with his alluring My Time act while V confronts his younger vulnerable self in an emotionally stirring Inner Child performance.
MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E, BTS” online concert has officially concluded Day 1 amid much fanfare. While we were expecting BTS to light it up like it’s Dynamite, we weren’t prepared for how hard the septet really went. Moreover, BTS ARMY got to witness the first-ever performances of several beloved Map of the Soul: 7 tracks, especially the solo songs, and it was spectacular in every sense of the words.
Let’s speak about Mr. Jeon Jungkook first! Turning 23 has never looked as hot as it does on The Golden Maknae and while My Time is a song about the struggles he had to face with growing up too quickly under the public eye, ARMY was left stunned by his ironic sultry performance. Decked in an all-black leather attire, Kookie tore the house down as the spotlight shone on him and we got major Michael Jackson vibes from his pitch-perfect dance moves. Giving BTS’ Silver Spoon a run for its money, Jungkook really drove us crazy with My Time’s wild choreography while leaving us breathless with his flaunting ‘abs’ tease.
In a complete 360, we had V’s tear-jerking performance of Inner Child which sees Kim Taehyung confront his younger vulnerable self. What was even more heartwarming was how V was accompanied by a small child who was dressed exactly like the singer in grey dungarees and a black suit while the duo rode on top a carousel. The smile TaeTae reserved for his ‘inner child’ was too cute to handle while Taehyung getting emotional during the end of his performance, as the virtual ARMY sang along with him, was something that gave us instant goosebumps.
Check out how BTS ARMY reacted to Jungkook’s My Time and V’s Inner Child performance during BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E Day 1 below:

Inner Child live sounds so different from Inner Child studio version. Taehyung is switching up the song to make it sound more heart wrenching and nostalgic. Taehyung will make sure our tear ducts won’t survive

THE EMOTIONS IN TAEHYUNG’S EYES WE DONT DESERVE HIM

This is such a powerful moment though, an adult Taehyung talking to his younger self and comforting him. Something we all do when we think about our growing pains. Kim Taehyung really feels every word in Inner Child. #MapOfTheSoulOne pic.twitter.com/auBVaLugJ6
