BTS, the world’s biggest boy band, released its first full English song, “Dynamite,” last month. The song was a massive success, ranking No.1 on Billboard Hot 100 chart. Besides the lyrics, vibes, and other elements of the songs, there were also many discussions on what BTS wore in Dynamite’s MV. The most iconic outfit that received a lot of attention was the retro disco look below.
