The Permission To Dance challenge was started by BTS in July. Fans choreographed their own dance moves and posted videos on YouTube.
BTS, comprising RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, recently released two tracks. Both the English songs, Butter and Permission to Dance, were announced back-to-back.
The latter imagines a pandemic-free and inclusive world in the near future. Butter has been at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine weeks now.
Last year, BTS had released Dynamite, their first all-English track. It earned them their first Grammy nomination.
