On BTS’s Love Yourself: Speak Yourself final concert night, Jungkook flew around Jamsil Olympic Stadium on a zipline and sang his hit solo “Euphoria” for the last time.
As “Euphoria” makes its graceful exit, it leaves behind remarkable accomplishments for an unpromoted B–side track. Here are five reasons why “Euphoria” is the most accomplished solo ever in BTS’ long list of hit songs.
1. “Euphoria” was played in Euphoria
“Euphoria”, a predominantly Korean–language song, was played as background music in the HBO series Euphoria season–ender episode, in its most climactic scene! Watch it here:
2. “Euphoria” sold over 200,000 units in the US
