After announcing a temporary break from their group activities, following their 9th Anniversary celebrations and the release of their anthology album Proof, BTS is taking firm strides into an exciting future.
When the members, including Kim Namjoon, Kim Seokjin, Min Yoongi, Jung Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, and Jeon Jungkook, revealed their intentions of stepping back and focussing on solo projects for some time, ARMYs were left with a bittersweet feeling about their favourite group’s future. While the fans understood and supported the group’s wishes of exploring who they are as individual artists, it also meant a lack of group projects, even if the band’s parent company HYBE assured that BTS would still be continuing with group activities like concerts and their variety show Run BTS.
But as it turns out, HYBE had something special in store for the ARMYs all this while. The company has joined hands with Disney on a multi-show deal that includes a new documentary that will chronicle BTS’ extraordinary journey since their debut in 2013 and will trace the path they took towards global domination.
BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star will not only focus on the band’s history but also their future as each individual member prepares for their second chapter. The docu-series would be available to stream in 2023.
Aside from this, the deal includes other programs produced by HYBE that would be streamed on Disney+, including an In The Soop spinoff featuring Kim Taehyung, or V, along with his Wooga Squad that comprises of Park Sae-joon, Choi Woo-shik, Park Hyung-sik, and Peakboy.
Fans of the group will also be able to stream BTS Permission To Dance On Stage-LA on the platform. Held towards the end of 2021, the Los Angeles concert was the group’s first ever in-person performance after a two year break because of the pandemic.
