A part of ARMY or otherwise, it is rare to not be swooned by the charisma of the South Korean boy band BTS. Recently, the septet won three awards at the American Music Awards 2021, including that of the Artist of the Year making a historic win as an Asian band to be the first to do so. The craze and fanfare just keep increasing as the band reaches new heights. Meanwhile, BTS inspired drama series ‘Youth’ has also been in filming and production for some time now.
The series is based on BTS’ famous ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Trilogy/Series’ also known as ‘Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa Trilogy/Series’ or ‘HYYH Trilogy/Series.’ As the trilogy is also called ‘Youth’, the title of the new series is aptly named so. It is a part of the fictional storyline from BTS’ albums, music videos, and content since 2015. The cast members include Seo Ji Hoon, Noh Jong Hyun, Ahn Ji Ho, Seo Young Joo, Kim Yun Woo, Jung Woo Jin, and Jeon Jin Seo who portray the members of the boy band.
The series is co-created by Chorokbaem Media and HYBE Labels. According to Pinkvilla, production company Chorokbaem Media confirmed that the filming for the BTS-inspired drama series ‘Youth’ has been completed on November 22, 2021. According to Chorokbaem Media, ‘Youth’ will also release on a global streaming platform soon. However, Chorokbaem Media and HYBE Labels have decided to not go ahead with the members’ real names in the show and rather use fictional names instead.
ARMYs are well versed in the ‘Bangtan Universe’ aka ‘BU’ which evolves around seven friends and their individual storylines, which shows their best and worst. The catch is that they can be saved by one friend who can time travel. This friend is stuck living the same day every day with the same end result, pretty much like Netflix’s ‘Russian Doll.’
