The Walt Disney Company and BTS’ studio home Hybe revealed a new global content partnership Tuesday that will see the companies work together to produce five streaming titles, including three exclusive projects featuring BTS or BTS members. Aligning itself with the world’s most popular K-pop group is undoubtedly a coup for Disney, as it seeks to both ramp up global subscriber counts and catch up with Netflix as a destination for bankable Korean entertainment.
The three upcoming titles featuring the K-pop stars include:
BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA: An exclusive cinematic 4K concert film featuring BTS’ live performance at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in November 2021. Performing “Butter” and “Permission to Dance,” both No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, this was the first time in two years since the pandemic that the band met fans in person.
