BTS ARMYs laud the members for their inclusivity as Permission To Dance choreography include sign language
BTS released their latest song ‘Permission To Dance’ which has already hit 100 M on YouTube. The song has got all the happy vibes with members (RM, Jin, Jungkook, Jimin, J-Hope, V, Suga) giving us a glimpse of what the post-pandemic world would feel like. Permission To Dance is BTS’ gift to Army as they ring 8 years of togetherness (literally). There is no denying that the song leaves you feeling dancy and bouncy and leaves you with a bright smile on your face. However, there is another reason to appreciate and love it all the more.
The music video for Permission To Dance sees the members perform the hook step to the music which looks very groovy. ARMYs were quick to point out that the choreography includes sign language indicating ‘Peace’, ‘dance’, ‘happiness’. Many even pointed out that BTS has also included hearing aid emoji in their Twitter bio. This gesture by their favourite group definitely left fans emotional.
Early in the pandemic I struggled bcz I lip read to compensate for my failing ears. Masks took away my ability to *hear* and it made me feel extra isolated. I know the D/HOH community felt that too. But today they were spoken to, acknowledged, & included. @BTS_twt 💜

Given that BTS’ popularity around the globe is on the rise, the members also make sure to send the right message and go out of their way, sometimes to promote inclusivity. 10003 reasons why ARMYs proudly stan the septet. Meanwhile, speaking about Permission to Dance, a press statement described the song as, “Just as the lyrics go, the song spreads the message that you don’t need permission to dance to your heart’s content, dedicated to anyone who is having a bad day or is discouraged in the face of reality. Words of encouragement overflow upon a bouncy rhythm that gives energy to get up on your feet and dance again.”
Earlier, their single Butter broke several records and continues to do so, as we speak.
