BTS Launches on Disney+ Worldwide
If our In the Soop: Friendcation story got you excited, there’s much more BTS coming to a streaming channel near you. Today, Disney+ announced a worldwide collaboration with BTS’s label, HYBE, including three programmes to land this year:
- BTS: PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA: The exclusive cinematic 4K concert film features BTS’ live performance in Los Angeles’ Sofi Stadium in November 2021. Performing Billboard hit songs “Butter” and “Permission to Dance,” this was the first time in two years (post pandemic) that the band met fans in person.
- IN THE SOOP: Friendcation: An original travel reality show features a star-studded cast including V of BTS, Itaewon Class’ Park Seo-jun, Parasite star Choi Woo-shik, Juror 8’s Park Hyung-sik, and Peakboy of last summer’s hit tune “Gyopo Hairstyle“ (as a preview, see the whole gang appear in the music video here). The programme features the five friends venturing on a trip and enjoying a variety of activities.
- BTS MONUMENTS: BEYOND THE STAR: This original docu-series follows the incredible journey of 21st century pop icons BTS. With unprecedented access to a vast library of music and footage over the past nine years, the series will feature the daily lives, thoughts and plans of BTS members, as they prepare for their second chapter. The docu-series will be available exclusively on Disney’s streaming services next year.
There will be more news to come as the newly aligned partners deliver great music-related content from HYBE artists. Watch this space!
