Always wanted to know exactly what BTS are signing about in Korean? Well soon you’ll be able to write your own K-pop thanks to the band.
They are set to release a series of online videos on Weverse from today (March 24).
There will be 30 videos in total and they are “designed to make it easy and fun for global fans who have difficulty enjoying BTS’ music and contents due to the language barrier,” said their record label in a statement.
Although it may be the perfect way to pass the time during Covid-19 isolation, since we’re all staying at home, it had actually been planned since February.
“There are only limited ways our fans could learn Korean with ease,” Big Hit’s founder, Bang Si-Hyuk, said.
“Big Hit has created Korean learning media using artist content for a more rewarding and immersive experience for our fans.”
The series will feature 3-minute episodes and will reuse material from their reality how Run BTS!, as well as YouTube-only series like Bangtan Bombs and BTS Episodes.
Parts of these videos will be “reassembled so that one can learn Korean by listening to expressions used frequently by the members”.
The videos will focus on simple Korean grammar and expressions, with the lesson plan developed by Professor Heo Yong of the Department of Korean Education at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies as well as researchers at the Korean Language Content Institute.
We are so ready!
