BTS just unveiled their first official book, titled BEYOND THE STORY: 10-YEAR RECORD OF BTS and written by Weverse Magazine‘s Myeongseok Kang.
Documenting the success of the group over the last 10 years, the new book takes readers through a journey of hardship and growth, beginning with the band’s first-ever gathering. Prepared and written over a number of years, the extensive project combines seven chapters, including “SEOUL”, “WHY WE EXIST”, “LOVE, HATE, ARMY’, “INSIDE OUT”, “A FLIGHT THAT NEVER LANDS”, “THE WORLD OF BTS”, and “WE ARE.”
Comprising interviews with the band members and first-person accounts, the book begins with the story of J-hope arriving in Seoul in 2010 and continues to explore the ways in which BTS came to life, recounting their biggest milestones and telling behind-the-scenes stories.
Initially published in Korean, BEYOND THE STORY is set to arrive in 22 additional languages and includes a timeline of all of BTS’ major moments, alongside 330 QR codes which readers can use to access the content mentioned in the book.
