Disney announced a deal on Monday that will bring a documentary series and concert featuring K-pop band BTS to its Disney+ streaming service.

The series will debut next year and include music and footage of the South Korean group collected over the past nine years. Called BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star, it will showcase “the daily lives, thoughts and plans” of the group’s members “as they prepare for their second chapter,” Disney said in a statement.

Last month, BTS announced the band would take a break while members worked on solo projects.

Disney’s agreement with HYBE, BTS’ management company, also allows them to air a recording of a stadium concert filmed in Los Angeles in November 2021, the group’s first performance in front of fans after a two-year interruption forced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition, the deal also includes a reality show called In the Soop: Friendcation and features V from BTS, Itaewon Class TV star Seo-jun Park, Parasite movie actor Woo-shik Choi, singer and actor Hyung-sik Park and rapper Peakboy.

The show will follow the five friends as they “venture on a surprise trip” and “enjoy a variety of fun activities,” Disney said.

Disney will also introduce programming from other HYBE artists over the next few years, the statement said.
