BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook on Thursday returned to stage and performed live in front of ARMY in Seoul for the first time since 2019. The show is the first of three concerts, titled Permission to Dance on Stage Seoul, for the group at the Olympic Stadium. For their day one concert, BTS members performed Permission to Dance, IDOL, DNA, Life Goes On, Baepsae, Dis-ease, Fake Love, Life Goes On, ON, Black Swan, Airplane Pt 2 and So What among others.

The BTS members were seen in several different outfits throughout the show. The vocal line members, Jin, Jimin, V, and Jungkook were also seen atop a cart which was filled with purple balloons. While Jin and Suga sported long hair, RM had coloured his hair blonde.

During one of their performances, the members were seen goofing around on the stage as J-Hope rapped. RM was seen pretending to be a dog and barking. V pretended to be an animal and crouched on all fours. Jimin twerked and also did a robot dance. Jin gave goofy expressions while Suga and Jungkook grooved to the song.

At another point during their performance, Jungkook was seen holding Suga as he rapped and danced. They laughed as the rest of the members also gave different poses near Suga, who laughed too. Throughout the concert, the members danced with full energy amid the purple wave.

BTS members were also seen singing the birthday song in Korean for Suga, who turned 29 on Wednesday. He turned 30 as per Korean culture. As the members sang around him without music, Suga danced as he stood in the middle. At one point in the concert, RM was seen trying to use the handheld confetti machine on the ARMY but it didn't work. He then rushed and picked up another one but it didn't work either. Trying several times, RM picked up his mic from the stage floor, smiled, and ran away.

During the concert, fans also spotted new tattoos on Jimin. While he was dancing, ARMY spotted a crescent moon on the nape inked in black. A few fans also spotted another tattoo, seemingly of an infinity symbol, behind Jimin's ear. Reacting to it, a fan wrote on Twitter, "Wait what." A person also said on Instagram, "It's so beautiful. It's similar to the moon phase on their debut date." A fan wrote, "Also would love to know if it's just a moon or maybe like more." Another fan said, "Ya he and JK apparently got new tattoos together!!" "Wait for a dang second," said a fan.

ARMY, for the concert, could only clap as Covid-19 rules barred all screaming, chanting, or singing. At the concert, V said, "Back then we danced while facing empty seats and looking at cameras but now we’re looking at ARMYs while performing so my heart is fluttering and I'm happy." He added, "You guys aren’t the only ones feeling awkward (because of the no yelling), it’s us too!"

He also added, "Today’s fine dust was really bad so I was worried. I wanted to say I am not positive! I am coughing because of the fine dust! I had really high hopes and thought we should have lots of fun! Was it fun everyone? Hearing your claps and not your voices, made me want to hear your voice more and I made a goal of hearing your voices next time! We still have the two days left right? Let’s make lots of happy memories!"

Jimin said, "Hello this is second-grader room 5 Jimin. It’s been a while! We've all been waiting for this for a long time and missed each other so much. In the beginning, when doing soundcheck, it felt weird to see ARMYs. I really felt ‘I’m really back home'."

RM said, "We didn’t realize how precious it is to be together and jump together. It was taken for granted. I would be lying if I said it didn’t affect us. We had lots of restrictions... I think we took a big step. I really wanted to sing home and it was meaningful because this is my true home. Seeing you all made me so happy. and looking back at this, it's gonna be fun memory. So later on, to our children, we can tell them that we were only able to clap at concerts. This historical moment, thank you for joining us."
