BTS Are Set To Feature In Three New Shows On Disney+. Following a new content arrangement between The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific and HYBE Entertainment, BTS are scheduled to appear in three new episodes on Disney+.
The new global content relationship, which was revealed today (July 12) through The Hollywood Reporter, will see the two firms work together to produce five new titles, including three exclusive series involving BTS or a few of their members.
One of the future releases will be BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA, an exclusive 4K concert video that captures BTS’s live performance at Sofi Stadium in November. Following the worldwide pandemic, the event was the first time in two years that K-pop superstars met fans in person.
BTS Are Set To Feature In Three New Shows On Disney+. In the Soup: Friendcation, an original travel reality program, will also have a star-studded cast that includes V from BTS, Seo-jun Park from Itaewon Class, Woo-shik Choi from Parasite, Hyung-sik Park from Peakboy, and others. The show’s premise follows five friends as they go on a surprise trip and participate in a variety of enjoyable activities.
An original documentary series called BTS Monuments: Beyond The Star, which follows “the remarkable journey of 21st century pop sensations BTS,” will round out the upcoming trifecta of BTS programming, according to Disney. The series will showcase the daily lives, ideas, and goals of BTS members as they gear up for their second chapter thanks to unprecedented access to a sizable library of music and video over the previous nine years.
Regarding the entertainment giant’s partnership with HYBE and BTS, Disney’s APAC head of content Jessica Kam-Engle said: “This collaboration represents our creative ambition – to work with iconic content creators and top stars in Asia Pacific so their talent can be enjoyed by mainstream audiences in multiple ways.
We are excited to add more music material to our service and feel that these new titles will attract consumers everywhere.
BTS announced earlier this month that during the group’s hiatus, they want to continue making music with a focus on separate projects. J-hope of the group just unveiled the track listing for his upcoming Friday release, “Jack In The Box,” his first solo album (July 15).
While Jungkook collaborated with Charlie Puth on the song “Left And Right,” rapper Suga confirmed last month that he is working on a follow-up to his 2020 release, “D-2.”
Vocalist V has previously stated that he doesn’t regret shelving his unreleased solo material. He told Weverse Magazine, “I just tell myself the next song should be greater than the last one and go compose it. When it comes to the songs I write, “I feel like I want to be as objective as I can be with myself.”
Jimin, on the other hand, has expressed a desire to produce “more raw” music. Although he acknowledged that there may be a more mature side to him, he added, “I’m more interested in directly expressing something that is closer to my true, unadulterated self in a genre like music or music videos.
“I hope that by doing this, I may demonstrate something I have never done before.”
