Fortnite Embraces K-Pop With Upcoming BTS Choreography Video Debut

If you listen to music at all, you’ve almost certainly heard about BTS. They’re the Korean pop sensation that has been slowly taking over the world for the past few years. They’re now so big that they played at the last Grammy awards ceremony and even represent a significant portion of South Korea’s GDP.

You know you’re big when you have a named segment of an East Asian country’s entire economic output.

BTS’s latest single, Dynamite, has rocked the world because it was their first song that was entirely written in English. This allowed them to release their music video on YouTube and pretty much break every record that the platform has for view counts except for total views. But give Dynamite a little time and we’re sure it’ll surpass even Despacito.

If that wasn’t enough of an indicator of just how enormously popular BTS has grown, the K-pop band has decided to release their next music video in Fortnite.

It’ll be a choreography version of Dynamite, which is basically a music video of the song where the band puts on a four-minute dance routine. There are fewer cuts and scene changes so it’s a bit easier for fans to learn the routine.

The video will debut in Fortnite’s Party Royale Mode on Friday, September 25 at 8 PM EST. This follows the same way Fortnite has handled various famous musical acts putting on concerts during the age of social distancing.

And in case you were wondering, yes, this will all be preceded by Fortnite selling a bunch of new emotes that are based on BTS dance moves. Those will go on sale starting on Wednesday, September 23 at 8 PM EST. No word on whether those emotes will match the same dance moves showcased in Dynamite or if they’ll be from other BTS songs, but the smart money is on a mix of the two.
