BTS: ‘Burn the Stage’ Original Series Launches March 28th on YouTube Red
Global music phenomenon and K-Pop superstars BTS will star in an all-new YouTube Original series exclusively available on YouTube Red, titled BTS: BURN THE STAGE. Launching on March 28 at 8:00am PST, this eight-episode series is an intimate eyewitness account of their star-making, sold-out world tour “2017 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE: THE WINGS TOUR,” taking BTS for 300-days through 20 cities across Asia, South America, and the United States, as well as their meteoric rise on the global stage through the band’s eyes.
Unlike anything released by BTS before, this new show by YouTube Red is described as an intimate, personal portrayal dedicated to each other and to their fans across the globe. It celebrates their friendship as they overcome hardships, and shows their growth and hard work.
BTS has been active on YouTube since 2013, and today ranks as YouTube’s biggest K-Pop act, earning 10 billion views to date across official and fan uploads and have broken records across social media for engagements.
Episodes 1 and 2 will be released on March 28 on BTS’ YouTube channel, Bangtan TV. While episode 1 will be free to watch for all fans on YouTube, episode 2 onward will be available by signing up to YouTube Red, YouTube’s subscription platform. Stay tuned for a new episode coming out every week until May 9.
Fans in Korea and the U.S. can enjoy a special two-month free trial (instead of the standard one month) by signing up via g.co/BTSoffer (terms and conditions apply). This special offer is redeemable from March 13 to April 13, 2018 PST only.
“We’re thrilled to be working with BTS to launch their groundbreaking documentary on YouTube Red to their worldwide ARMY fans. YouTube has been instrumental in spreading BTS’ music around the world, so today we’re happy that we can be a part of this series’ launch that showcases BTS’ maturation as global phenomena,” said Nadine Zylstra, Head of YouTube Originals, Asia Pacific.
BigHit Entertainment said, “’BTS: Burn the Stage’ is a real-life documentary series where viewers can encounter both fantastic performances of BTS portrayed on the stunning stages of their sold-out world tour, and the more personal side of BTS members in behind-the-scenes moments. We hope the series can convey authenticity of BTS to the world at large as well as to BTS’ dedicated fans.”
