BTS has shared a new version of its music video for “Life Goes On.”
On Friday (Nov. 20), the seven-member K-pop group shared the official video for “Life Goes On,” the lead single from the act’s latest album, BE. The Jungkook- directed clip takes fans through a sentimental visual journey, where the boy band grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic taking away its live shows.
The new version of “Life Goes On,” dubbed “on my pillow,” stretches a scene from the original four-minute clip of the septet cozying up with each other in a bedroom. Watch the guys lounge around on a bed in their pajamas while singing the track below.
“The emotion I wanted to express is the sadness and the longing that was felt because the tour was canceled due to COVID-19 and because we couldn’t see ARMY much,” Jungkook said during a press conference for BE. “It’s amazing that the video I took and worked hard on is released as a music video.”
BTS rescheduled the rest of its Map of the Soul world tour due to COVID back in April. The international jaunt was originally scheduled to begin on April 11 in Seoul before it was canceled in late February. Then in March, the boy band announced its North American tour dates, which were scheduled to launch April 25 in Santa Clara, Calif., would be postponed.
