The Korean band took it a notch for their performance it America’s Got Talent. In their retro look from the “Dynamite” video, BTS filmed a “one-take” style show in an amusement park that appeared to be Everland, a well-known theme park in South Korea.

With the night setting and the warm lighting, it looked like a summer night with shade in the fall, marking the transition to “Dynamite” as a fun summer anthem to a song perfect for fall that shows the versatility of the disco-pop track.
