It has been confirmed that the famous male K-pop group BTS will have their book titled ‘Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS’ that is set to be released on July 9 in South Korea and the United States.
The k-pop group’s book was written by the members together with journalist Kang Myeongseok. The book has been said to be written in the structure of an oral history.
Based on a report, the book is set to have 544 pages with photographs in its edition in the U.S. Anton Hur worked together with Slin Jung and Clare Richards for the translation of the book.
Prior to the news and confirmation that BTS will have their own book, there have been various rumors that either the group or British musician Taylor Swift will release a book. These speculations, however, were all laid to rest after Flatiron Books confirmed that it is the K-pop group that will have an upcoming book.
In an Instagram post, Flatiron Books retweeted the article of The New York Times about the announcement of BTS’ new book.
July 9, the date of the scheduled release of the book, is also the birth date of the group’s fandom, ARMY.
According to a report, the group’s book is set to have one million copies in its initial print run. Flatiron Books, the publisher in the U.S., called the work a “fun, celebratory title” and will skew to “younger audiences”.
Following the announcement, many fans of the global icons have expressed their excitement online and are excited to order the upcoming book.
Here are some reactions from the fans after the announcement of BTS’ upcoming book:
