On October 12, Mnet aired the special show “BTS Countdown,” where BTS had their own chart countdown, played games, performed, acted, and more!
During “BTS Countdown,” BTS’s songs “DNA” and “Dope” were named as the nominees to be picked as ARMY’s favorite. Jin became the MC as the group split up into two teams: V, J-Hope, and Jimin as Team Dope and Suga, Rap Monster, and Jungkook as Team DNA.
As part of the show, BTS shared footage of their short drama “Bulletproof Boss” and had a selfie battle. Jungkook and Jimin were Team Calico Cat, V and Jin were Team Serendipity, and Suga, Rap Monster, and J-Hope were Team Penicillin as they posed for selfies. Jungkook and Jimin ended up winning first place, according to fan voting.
For the first time on television, BTS performed “Tomorrow,” “I Like It,” “Cypher 4,” and “Lost.” They also performed “Dope” and their hit new songs “Go Go,” “MIC Drop,” and “DNA.”
In the end, BTS announced that fans had voted for “DNA” as No. 1, and that team earned a giant trophy. The “Dope” team danced to “DNA” at double speed as their penalty, but they were joined during the song by the rest of their members.
