It will have a similar learning effect to a formal Korean language-learning course as language researchers and scholars from the Korea Language Contents Institute and Hankuk University of Foreign Languages were involved in the creation of the curriculum.
K-pop fans from all over the world face difficulties in understanding the lyrics of their favourite members during the interview due to language barriers.
The general consensus though, even from native Korean speakers seems to be that one must at least have learnt the Korean alphabet or Hangul before starting these lessons. Now it has a new video series based on BTS that aims to teach their global fans to speak Korean.
"Learn Korean With BTS" aims to introduce fans to simple Korean grammar and popular expressions by repurposing snippets from the band's insanely popular videos, including "Run BTS", "Bangtan Bomb" and "BTS Episode".
"Learn Korean with BTS'" is a short-form content created to make learning Korean easy and fun for global fans who have difficulty enjoying BTS's music and related content due to language barrier. BTS's management company, Big Hit Entertainment, first announced the series during a corporate briefing in February, while infection rates in South Korea were still relatively low. The first three will be available at launch, with subsequent installments to be released every Monday at 9PM KST. It was recently reported that the band would be featured in a web series which would aid their global fans to learn Korean. "We ended up planning Korean-language educational content in the hopes of making K-pop content more accessible", the agency said.
Yes, the series is completely free- and for those who know, BTS have always loved putting out content to keep their fans happy to up to date, so this is just the latest idea from them and we're loving it.
We are also developing plans to secure dates and venues to hold BTSMAP OF THE SOUL TOUR - SEOUL Concerts when the situation stabilizes.
