BTS to sing theme song of upcoming SBS animation 'Bastions'
BTS will sing the theme song of upcoming SBS animation “Bastions,” set to premiere on May 13, announced Thymos Media on Friday.
Recorded prior to member Jin’s enlistment in the military in December last year, the track will be the first music released by the boy band in eleven months, since the anthology album “Proof,” released in June.
“Bastions” is a 3D action-hero animation produced by Nable Communications and Jo Buem-jin who is an award-winning animation director known for his 2006 work, “Aachi & Ssipak,” an X-rated black-comedy animation aimed at the adult demographic. The plot revolves around rookie heroes named Bastions who are trying to find the villains causing environmental pollution to fight them.
It was announced on April 7 that girl group Le Sserafim, former members of girl group Brave Girls, female artists Heize, AleXa, Seo J, Kang Min-seo and rapper P. Cassady will also feature on the soundtrack.
Thymos Media is an entertainment corporation that specializes in producing and distributing animations.
BTS is currently taking a hiatus following the enlistment of Jin, late last year. With J-Hope also preparing for his mandatory military service, BTS members have been focusing more on individual activities, with RM, J-hope, Suga and Jimin all releasing solo albums in 2022 and 2023.
