What to expect from BTS' Bang Bang Con 21?

While the band is yet to reveal what awaits fans at the second annual virtual concert, ARMY has begun placing bets on their favorite Bangtan moments. Meanwhile, a few fans are anticipating a mixtape after Bang Bang 21 concludes.

Bang Bang Con was first organized last year when the novel coronavirus brought the music industry to a halt. However, the livestream was a tremendous success among fans who were relieved to watch their favorite band while being cooped up in their homes. The first virtual concert clocked over 50 million views within 24 hours.

BTS recently released a music video for Film Out, reportedly the lead single from their album BTS, the Best. The album is due for release on June 17th. Meanwhile, the all-boy K-pop band recently received a nomination for Best International Group at the 2021 Brit Awards. They are the first Korean act to be nominated at the award show. Furthermore, they have received three nominations for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which will be airing live on May 27th.
