BTS is currently on hiatus, but apparently that doesn’t mean they’re not going to be putting out content. The band has announced a new docuseries that should keep fans happy while they wait for more new music from the beloved global pop band.
BTS Monuments: Beyond The Star is an eight-episode docuseries based around the K-pop titans. The project is headed right for Disney+, scheduled to premiere on December 20. Each Wednesday, two new episodes will roll out until the full program is available.
According to a release shared announcing the docuseries, it will “take audiences on an in-depth journey across the band’s 10-year career, offering a glimpse into the countless obstacles and challenges the band encountered in reaching their global career-defining milestones, as well as the members’ daily lives and inner thoughts.” Not much more is known about the series, other than the fact that it will feature all seven members, so it was shot some time ago.
At the time of the announcement, a very short trailer was also debuted. It includes just one snippet with each of the seven singers in the band—RM, Jin, Jung Kook, Suga, V, J-Hope and Jimin—talking very briefly about making music on their own and being a part of the historic outfit.
Throughout their decade together, the Grammy-nominated boy band has taken part in a number of reality series and programs with varying styles and tones, some available fully online. Shows like Run BTS! and BTS in the Soop have attracted millions of viewers. The group has also released half a dozen concert films and documentaries, with some hitting theaters globally and earning millions at the box office. Their latest movie, BTS: Yet to Come in Cinemas, arrived in February 2023.
BTS has been on hiatus for more than a year now, and the reason for the temporary split is twofold. Several of the singers in the band are busy fulfilling their mandatory military enlistment, which all men in South Korea must complete by a certain age. The other singers who haven’t yet enlisted are busy with their solo careers, which have all been going well in nations like the U.S. and, of course, South Korea.
