Love Yourself: Tear is finally here, and BTS are ready to perform the single “Fake Love” for the first time on television at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 20. In an interview with Billboard’s Chelsea Briggs, the seven members of the Korean boy band discussed the song’s choreography ahead of their performance.
“There’s an old saying, like, ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil,’” RM said, referring to the Japanese “Three Wise Monkeys” maxim. “We put that saying in the main part of our choreography. So it’s going to be an interesting point if you find this old saying in our choreography. It’ll be more powerful than ever.”
The music video for “Fake Love” was released earlier today, and hand motions inspired by the three wise monkeys are apparent during parts of the chorus.
Though Jimin said “it’s a secret so we can’t really show you the details,” the BTS members did their best to show Billboard some brief moves from the choreography of “Fake Love.”
