Big Hit launches video series to help K-pop fans learn Korean language
The management agency of K-pop boy band BTS will launch a series of short video clips this week designed to provide Korean language education to non-Korean fans, the agency said Monday.
Big Hit Entertainment said the first three episodes of the series, “Learn Korean with BTS,” will hit Weverse, the mobile app for the BTS fan community, Tuesday afternoon.
Following the release of the first three episodes, one new episode will hit Weverse every Monday morning, with a total of 30 clips to be provided for free, according to Big Hit.
Each episode runs for about three minutes and recycles scenes from existing BTS shows like “Run BTS!” and “Bangtan Bomb” to provide lessons on Korean grammar, expressions and culture.
Going forward, the management agency will come up with a variety of content for Korean language education for fans featuring not only BTS but also its other artists.
“Big Hit devised the Korean education content in order to help improve [global fans’] access to K-pop content as there’s drastically increasing demand for Korean education due to the global popularity of K-pop and other Korean cultural content,” the agency said.
