The pop sensations were tasked with re-enacting some of the game’s best-known dances, including ‘Orange Justice,’ ‘The Floss,’ ‘Tidy,’ and more – to thunderous applause.

While the band pulled off the moves with ease, Fallon had a bit of a tougher time. BTS cheered him on nonetheless, and the whole group performed a few moves together – although Fallon ended up falling to the floor out of desperation during ‘The Floss.’

The segment ended with BTS teaching Fallon the choreography from their song ‘IDOL.’ The crowd even sang along with them to the clip, and Jimmy’s moves weren’t too shabby, either.


The band ended up performing their song ‘I’m Fine’ just after the segment. Their moves on the show have garnered them over 1,633,000 views on YouTube as of September 26 in a video of the broadcast.

Many commenters noted the irony of the group mimicking Fortnite dances, due to their noted preference of Overwatch and League of Legends. The group are even invested in the games’ esports scenes, and have favorite players and teams within their competitive leagues.

The band’s performance followed member Kim ‘RM’ Nam-joon’s address to the UN on September 24, where he announced the launch of the group’s Love Myself campaign in partnership with UNICEF’s End Violence program.
