It’s hard to think of a music group that deserves more vacation time than BTS, who have spent the past few years churning out hit singles, performing high-intensity live shows, and developing fan experience projects. nonstop. And luckily for them, they now have one…virtually, at least.
As announced in April, a new video game based on the seven hardworking guys behind the world’s biggest boy band – Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jung Kook – has arrived. Title BTS Island: In the SEOMit is described as themed around the guys’ quest for fun and relaxation after they mysteriously arrive on an empty island called Seom.
The game very aptly follows the band’s statement on June 14 that they would be temporarily stepping down from their work as a band. Although Jung Kook later clarified that BTS is not disbanding and will still be active as a team for certain things (video games, for example), the group plans to take more time to work on solo projects. And if they’re as lucky as their animated video game characters, they’ll each have a chance to finally enjoy some rest and relaxation.
The new game came after the band’s new album Evidence, which was released earlier in June and served as a three-disc compilation album of earlier work. It also featured a handful of new tracks, including “Yet to Come” – a song that recently turned out to be part of the BTS Island universe.
