In the four-minute video, the seven bandmates showcase powerful and perfectly coordinated moves.

The song, named after the Greek god of wine, has topped the Billboard chart. It has been dubbed “the most outlandish song BTS has ever released” and “the most memorable of the set’s new songs” by Billboard magazine.

“It demonstrates the qualities that have seen BTS raise the boy band game to new levels,” said the Financial Times.

The group opened its latest tour with this song on May 4, performing in front of an audience of 60,000 at Los Angeles Rose Bowl Stadium.

“Sorry to wake you up!” said the bandmates when they realized it was 6 a.m. in Korea.

“We are back in Germany after a long while,” said Bang Chan, recalling their visit to Berlin for a Korean music program in September last year.

Han appeared on camera with a roar, prompting his bandmates to say, “Don’t make a horror film so early in the morning.”

“We have performed for the concert without a hitch,” Lee Know told fans, while Bang Chan tried to adjust the camera angle. “I can’t fit everyone in one frame,” he chuckled before going behind the camera.

“We are grateful that we have been invited to participate … and were so happy to be welcomed by our fans in Germany with such warmth,” said the band.

“It’s 11:17 p.m. in Korea and 9:17 a.m. here so I named the episode ‘Good Night and Good Morning,’” he said, adding that he had lost track of the time difference while traveling across the US, and had checked the clock before going live.

“Hopefully you had a good Children’s Day, but you should be sleeping at this hour,” added the performer.

Lest his fans forget about the upcoming release of the unit’s fourth EP, he said, “In about two weeks our ‘Superhuman’ EP will be released. On the 24th, to be exact. Please keep an eye out for it since you can enjoy our songs with high-resolution video and audio.”

“We have been touring a number of cities in the US, and I have been happy since I am free from worrying about my voice. Maybe it’s because of the humid weather, which as you know I like because I believe it is better for my vocal cords, but anyway my voice feels more healthy,” said the group’s main vocalist.

The singer is seen posing for individual scenes in the music video for “Me & You,” the lead song of the group’s fifth EP, “We.”

The girl group has unveiled the track list consisting of seven songs, including “We Are …,” dedicated to fans, for which all five members co-wrote the lyrics. Member LE participated in writing and composing all tracks. The EP will be launched on May 15 with a showcase.

It will be the last EP presented by the 7-year-old band with all five members because Hani and Jeonghwa have not renewed their contracts with their agency. The remaining three bandmates will continue as EXID while also pursuing individual activities, said the company.

The group performed, along with Stray Kids, Astro, KARD and Ailee, at the 2019 “K-Pop Big 5 Concert” in Dusseldorf, Germany.
