Begins Youth Part 1 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Begins ≠ Youth Part 1

Within a few years of their debut, the K-pop group BTS became one of the most well-known boybands in the world. The 7-member boy group has released a total of nine studio albums, seven compilation albums, and six extended plays or mini-albums. In 2015, the boy group released two extended plays titled ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life’ and ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt. 2’.

The songs released in the two mini-albums came to be called the HYYH Era [i.e. the Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa (화 양 연 화) Era] of BTS. The songs contained in these albums followed a fictional storyline about a group of 7 friends which was later explored in the Naver Webtoon titled – Save Me.

After the immense success of the mini-albums as well as the webtoons respectively, the storyline that was narrated by BTS is finally being released in a live-action K-drama titled  Begins ≠ Youth.

The show will be released in three parts with four episodes each. If you’ve been following Begins Youth, you may be curious to find out when the first part of this upcoming Korean drama will be released. Well, wonder no more!
