MTV has announced that the chart-topping Korean pop group BTS would be performing on its show "MTV Unplugged" this month.

The teaser uploaded on Tuesday revealed that BTS (consisting of Jimin, SUGA, RM, Jin, Jung Kook, V, and J-Hope) will be performing different renditions of their hit songs, including those from their "BE" album. Hits like “Boy with Luv” and their recent song “Dynamite” are likely to be part of the song list.

The year 2020 was a good one for BTS as they have bagged numerous awards for their recent songs and performances. At the Mnet Asian Music Awards alone, the group won the 2020 Visionary award, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Best Male Group, Best Dance Performance – Male Group, Song of the Year (for “Dynamite”), Best Music Video (for “Dynamite”), Worldwide Icon of the Year, and World Fans Choice Top 10.

Their song "Dynamite" was released on August 21, 2020, and it became an instant hit due to its catchy beat. Various reviews from critics and fans alike noted that it is the ideal happy pill, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The members were also featured as animated characters in a recent video of TinyTAN, released on Jan. 15 on the official BANGTANTV YouTube channel. The video has garnered more than 23 million views as of press time.

BTS or Bangtan Sonyeondan was formed in 2010 under the South Korea-based music label Big Hit Entertainment. They officially debuted as a group in 2013. First branded as a Korean hip-hop boy group, their musical style has changed over the years — the secret to their unwavering success.

Aside from many chart-topping singles and group performances, they have collaborated with other international music artists such as Halsey for "Boy With Luv," Steve Aoki for the remix of "MIC Drop," and Lauv for "Make it Right."

The boy group’s special episode is scheduled to premiere on Feb. 23 at 9 p.m. ET in the United States. It will be aired at a later date worldwide.
