Mnet, a Korean channel, confirmed that filming has been completed for an exclusive, one-time music show starring Hallyu sensations BTS. The Bangtan Boys have shattered record after record among K-pop artists, breaking into the top 10 on Billboard 200 and claiming the sixth spot of most-viewed music videos within a 24-hour period. So, it makes sense that Korean channels would want to tap into their success.
This marks the second time Mnet has given BTS their own special, which is a rarity in K-pop. Soompi reports that the program will take on a format similar to the boy band’s Sept. 21 comeback show, which featured a combination of behind-the-scenes footage, talk segments and performances. Last week, it was announced that a network, MBC, would replace its music show, “Show Champion,” with a BTS special that focused on the history of the group.
