South Korean K-pop boyband have caused a sensation online with their cover of Coldplay's song Fix You for a new series MTV Unplugged.

Their performance was filmed in South Korea and included several songs from their 2020 album, BE, along with their version of the Coldplay song, which they said gave them "comfort" during challenging times and that they "wanted to prepare this cover to comfort [their fans] as well".

They also performed their hits Dynamite, Blue & Grey and Telepathy, and ended the gig with Life Goes On.

Speaking at the end of their five-song performance, the band thanked fans for watching and said that they hope to perform on stage again soon. "We look forward to seeing you again," band member Jungkook said, "and until then, we will continue to stay by your side with good music."

RM added, "We hope many of you are comforted while watching from your rooms and houses."

Earlier this month, BTS topped Twitter’s list of most popular artists for the fourth year in a row.

The group were the most tweeted-about musicians in the US, beating Kanye West, Beyoncé, and Drake for the most mentions on its platform in 2020.
