Big Hit Entertainment recently announced their plans to launch a BTS-inspired K-Drama in 2020. The drama will tell the story of seven boys who meet each other in the BTS Universe. Since the show will be based on BTS’s younger selves, BTS will not act in it. Instead, actors will be cast. “Younger” is open to interpretation, but many fans predict that the story will take place during the fictional BTS’s teen years or early 20s.
