Karen Jane Ng
BTS is about to completely break barriers with the launch of their new program "Learn Korean with BTS!"
The educational initiative aims to "make it easy and fun for global fans who have difficulty enjoying BTS' music and content due to the language barrier." The first three episodes will premiere tomorrow, March 24 on the fan community platform Weverse while the rest will drop every Monday.

With the help of professors and researchers from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies and the Korea Language Contents Institute, the episodes will feature basic Korean expressions that BTS especially used in their variety program Run BTS and YouTube vlog Bangtan Bomb.
BTS' agency Big Hit Entertainment has also made the effort to include English subtitles in the K-pop group's YouTube content.
This is Bangtan giving us a productive way to spend our quarantine days. Let's make them proud, shall we? In the meantime, get a head start by watching VJ Sunny's Korean 101 videos below:
