BTS to get its own autobiographical comic book
BTS's story of rise to fame and enlistment will be made into a comic book in the United States, Reuters reported on Friday.
The 22-page comic book about the band will become available on Wednesday in both print and digital.
It will portray how the seven singers became famous — and their switch from pop stars to soldiers, according to Reuters on Friday.
The comic book will be a part of the American comic series "FAME" by TidalWave Comics, which introduces the life stories of famous personalities, including singers, actors and star athletes.
BTS's version will cover the story of the band's rise to popularity since its debut in 2013, detailing its journey as it released numerous hit songs, engaged in charitable activities and became a global pop star.
All seven members of the band are currently completing their mandatory service.
The oldest member, Jin, enlisted in the military in December 2022, followed by the other six members J-Hope, Suga, RM, V, Jimin and Jungkook. J-Hope joined the Army in April 2023, and RM, V, Jimin and Jungkook enlisted in December 2023. Suga is currently serving as a social service agent.
All members are expected to return by June 2025.
"FAME" previously featured celebrities like singers Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, 50 Cent, actor Jennifer Lawrence and footballer David Beckham as main characters.
