BTS teach fans to speak Korean in new web series

By | Published on Wednesday 25 March 2020


If ever there was a time to learn a new skill, it’s now. So, with that in mind, BTS have launched a new web series to help you learn Korean.

That said, this is not a response to the COVID-19 lockdown. Originally announced in February, the project came about after fans requested that the band’s videos carry English subtitles. They apparently felt that it would be better if everyone could just speak Korean.

Launched yesterday on Weverse – a social media platform owned by BTS’s management company Big Hit Entertainment – the series is split into 30 three-minute videos, focussing on different elements of the Korean language. Watch them all and you will definitely, definitely become fluent.

“There are only limited ways our fans could learn Korean with ease”, says Big Hit Entertainment founder Bang Si-Hyuk. “Big Hit has created Korean learning media using artist content for a more rewarding and immersive experience for our fans”.
