As lights dim down, as the music starts and the fanchant begins,
we see the positive views we have of them. Although what we don’t know is what happens backstage.
Starting on March 28, 2018, BTS will release a documentary series on YouTube Red and will run until May 9, 2018 with a series of 8 episodes in total.
(The first episode can be seen for free – link below)
Every Army member is going to have the opportunity to see what actually happens behind the scenes. The series will mainly consist of their recent tour from 2017, Wings Tour.
Personally, I believe that these series will be not only eye-opening but also very overwhelming. As an ARMY, we are used to always seeing their cheerful side and how they interact with each other so well.
Being able to see what happens behind the scenes will bring out a new view that we’ve never seen. What actual hard work and dedication towards each other, their performances, themselves, and even towards their fan base looks like.
I support how BTS is doing this documentary and showing their intimate side of the group and of themselves. It takes lots of courage to come forward and face a difficult situation. The fact that they decided to share it with ARMY and the entire world, it’s very inspiring.
Every blood, sweat, and tear.

Episode 1: I’d do it all
And so the journey begins. BTS, a K-Pop group that is taking over the world. Not only spreading in the United States but also in other countries. But what is the true reason of this documentary?
“What I can say for sure is that there’s a reason we do this.” -RM
In the beginning, the members discuss between themselves, what’s the reason? Ideas vary between what happens backstage, before make up, or any other time that is not on stage. What they did now is that they wanted to share with their fans something raw that not only they would like to watch but that will also motivate and inspire others.
Individually, they all have a raw side that they try to hide. Some think that if they let it show, it will only show weakness or it will worry their fans. We have to remember, they are humans too.
“I want them to think, ‘Oh, I didn’t know they had that side.’ It’ll be an opportunity to show them more by filtering less.” – Suga
As I was watching, it opened up my eyes even more as to what kind of leader, RM, actually is. There are scenes where he asks the members to no overdo themselves and is always checking on them to see if they’re fine. I thought to myself, “You know you’re working hard when you cant even remember your age V.” It is very interesting to see how they get prepared before they go on stage. How they interact with each other. From a personal level. I have experienced what it’s like to have rehearsal before going on stage and what thoughts go through your mind, sending nerves throughout your body. Although I only faced an audience of 3,500 people, it was still difficult and stressing.
“They are just like me.”
(I will be updating into more detail about the series and personal thoughts. Please look forward to it.)
