P1Harmony's pre-debut film now available for fans around the world
Rookie boy band P1Harmony's pre-debut film "P1H: A New World Begins" is now available on video streaming platforms in Korea, Japan, China and Indonesia, reaching out to fans all over the world.
According to the band's agency FNC Entertainment, the film will be broken up into five episodes, and new episodes will be uploaded every Friday at noon starting today.
The film had been revealed to oversea viewers in a shortened format, but this will be the first time for the whole version to be available to international audiences.
In addition to Korea's Kakao TV, the film will also be available for streaming on Yahoo Japan's GYAO! and China's Tencent Video today and Bilibili and Indonesia's RCTI+ channel on Feb. 12.
"P1H: A New World Begins" was released on Oct. 8 last year prior to the band's official debut on Oct. 28. The film is the first-ever to revolve around the background story — commonly referred to as universe, like the Marvel cinematic universe — of a K-pop idol band.
Directed by Chang Gamdok, the film features the six members of P1Harmony — Theo, Jongseob, Intak, Jiung, Soul and Keeho. They are children of hope in a world ruined by the Alcor virus, which rids people of their reason and leaves them with only their most violent and aggressive behavior, leading them to attack each other to the death.
P1Harmony was recently named on Time magazine's list of K-pop Groups to Listen to in 2021.
