BTS has been chosen by Seo Taiji to remake one of his popular songs as part of his "Project 25" concert. The Kpop legend is celebrating his 25th debut anniversary and he wants to mark the event with collaborations, by allowing his juniors to sing his best musical pieces.
Apparently, BTS is the first confirmed idol group to be in the line-up for the show. The concert is happening on Sept. 2 at Jamsil Olympic Main Stadium in Seoul. More guests are expected to be added to the list of performers.
The project was revealed to have been planned by Seo Taiji so he can develop some musical bond with his hoobaes or junior singers. "Project 25" is also meant to bring meaningful and good music to all types of listeners.
According to insiders, Seo Taiji personally picks the junior singers and he will work closely with them, starting from the choosing of songs down to the new arrangement of the piece for the remake version. The "Take One" singer is revealing the next batch of singers who will participate in his concert in the coming days, Sports Seoul reported.
It was said that Seo Taiji easily chose BTS because he really liked the group's performance when they sang Seo Taiji and the Boys' hit song "Class Idea" at the 2016 KBS Gayo Song Festival. Aside from the fans and the original singer, the idol group also received good feedback from other observers.
Although the BTS rendition of "Class Idea" was a hit, it has not been decided yet as to what song they will sing for "Project 25." Meanwhile, BTS recently won an award at the 9th Shorty Awards that was held in New York on April 23.
BTS was recognized for their massive influence on social media and beat international singers like Britney Spears and Ariana Grande. Yonhap News Agency reported that the 7-member boy band was the only Asian artist that was nominated for the award.
