If you thought BTS was only making headlines in the US, then you haven’t been keeping up with the BBC as of late. This weekend, the Internet began buzzing when rumors about an upcoming documentary about BTS went live. And, now, BBC Radio 1 has confirmed the special is really happening.
Over on Twitter, the account for BBC Radio 1 put fans of BTS at ease with a simple post. The account confirmed to the band’s fanbase that show hot Adele Roberts went to Seoul, South Korea with a team to shoot a special K-pop documentary.
“Dear Army, Adele Roberts has been busy over in Seoul working on a very special K-pop documentary featuring BTS. She’s back on Radio 1 tomorrow and has brought something new back to play on Best New Pop,” the account shared.
Fans first learned about the top-secret special when Nick Rotherham shared a video of himself and the BBC Radio 1 team abroad. The reporter posted a video of himself and three other team members learning choreography to the group’s latest single “MIC Drop.”
“On our last day of shooting a BTS documentary in Seoul for BBC Radio 1 we were taught the dance to their new track “Mic Drop” by their very own choreographer,” Rotherham posted.
There is no word on when the documentary will go live, but Army is already anticipating the special. In recent weeks, BTS has reached new heights on their conquest to take over the Billboard charts as well as the west. The K-pop sensations came to the US to make their live televised debut on the American Music Awards earlier this month. The group caused a social media frenzy thanks to their energetic performance of “DNA,” and BTS also sat down for interviews on programs like Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
