“Bang Bang Con: The Live” was streamed live for around 100 minutes remotely from a studio in Seoul last month. The septet canceled its world tour schedule for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Bit Hit Entertainment, the boy band’s agency, it was the world’s biggest paid online music event in terms of number of viewers.
