BTS Donate 'Dynamite' Outfits For Sale At Charity Auction

BTS has placed their pastel outfits from the "Dynamite" music video for sale at a charity auction for the first time!

On November 30, it was reported that the world-renowned K-Pop boy band BTS donated costumes from the music video of their hit song "Dynamite".

The clothing will be sold at a charity auction in Beverly Hills, California, in January next year, especially at Julian's auction house. The blue, yellow, pink, and lavender pastel suits of the BTSs will be taken home by the highest bidder.

The outfits include the pastel T-shirts, pants, hats, and sneakers the BTS members wore in the "Dynamite" MV this past August. According to Martin Nolan, the executive director of the said charity auction, this is the first time that BTS has put their attires up for sale. He also revealed that the clothes' prices start from $20,000 to $40,000.

Proceeds from the charity auction will be donated to MusiCares, a charity program being of the Recording Academy, also known as the organizers of the GRAMMY Awards.

In December 2019, a set of BTS's used microphones were also sold at Julien's Auctions. Each mic had an autograph of each member and was used by the boy group from 2017 to 2019, including when BTS held its "Love Yourself" world tour. The auction for the set of mics began with an opening bid of $5,000 and ascended to approximately $50,000 a week before the bidding closed. In the end, BTS's microphones were sold at a total of 83,200 USD.

The funds earned from the auction were also donated to the Recording Academy's MusiCares. The charity program has already provided over 60 million USD to musicians in times of need, particularly in financial, health, and rehabilitation resources.

Upon releasing BTS's "Dynamite," the song has been breaking many K-Pop records when it comes to YouTube views. The song's music video also became the fastest MV of a Korean artist to exceed 350 million views in around 23 days and 22 hours, beating BLACKPINK's "How You Like That" in only about a month and one day. The MV also became the fastest one to hit 450 million, 500 million, and 550 million views. And on Dec. 1, BTS's "Dynamite" MV has attained 650 million views, becoming the quickest video by a Korean act to achieve the feat.

Other than that, BTS earned a total of 25 music show trophies with "Dynamite." And on Nov. 1, the song maintained its top spot on Melon's daily chart, marking its 53rd day on the chart and becoming the track with the most days at No. 1 in Melon's history. "Dynamite" also set a new record for being the song with the most collective hours at No. 1 on Genie's music chart with 942 hours, breaking iKON's 2018 track "Love Scenario" with 838 hours.

Furthermore, the single is at No. 17 on Billboard's Hot 100 for the week of Nov. 21, making it its 12th week in the chart's Top 20. BTS is now the South Korean group with the longest-running song on the said chart.
