BTS’ ‘Dynamite’ Costumes To Light Up US Music Charity Auction
K-pop band BTS is offering up its outfits from the music video for hit single “Dynamite” to the highest bidder in a Beverly Hills charity auction in January.
Popular K-Pop band members of BTS are offering up their outfits from the music video Dynamite. The outfits from their hit single will be given to the highest bidder in Beverly Hills, California, charity auction in January. The colourful pink, blue, yellow and lavender pastel outfits worn by the seven singers in the record-setting video are expected to fetch what Julien’s Auctions on Monday called a conservative estimate of $20,000 – $40,000.
The Executive Director of Julien Auctions Martin Nolan said, “This is the first time that BTS has ever sold any costumes.” The costumes include T-shirts, hats, sneakers, pants and shirts worn by the South Korean boy band during the final dance sequence of the music video for Dynamite in August.
BTS’ Dynamite, the first all-English language single, debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 single charts in the summer as a first for a South Korean pop act. The Dynamite music video featuring the band members dancing with a sunset sky behind them became the fastest YouTube video to reach 10 million views after 20 minutes of its release.
Back in January 2020, seven signed microphones used by the band on tour were sold in Los Angeles for $83,200-eight times more than the expected price. BTS is known for using its music to spread optimism. It notched another milestone in the US music industry last week when it was nominated for its first major Grammy Award.
The Dynamite music video outfits will be one of the items auctioned on January 29 in Beverly Hills and online to raise funds for MusiCares, the philanthropic arm of the Recording Academy which organises the annual Grammy Awards. Music Care also funds health and welfare programs for musicians including ten thousand who lost work during the Pandemic.
