They might be the most popular boy band in the world right now, but when BTS wants to keep a project they’re working on under wraps, they find a way to do it. Word is finally getting out that the K-Pop group filmed a television show called, Burn The Stage, more than a year ago in January 2017 and Episodes 1 and 2 are currently listed — in Korean — online.
So far, details about the reality show have been vague — BTS members V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, RM, or J-Hope aren’t even confirmed to be the stars and it’s unclear which countries the show will air in. But fans are already taking to social media to express their excitement.
“Its gonna be LIT,” one fan wrote. Another said, “And to think they have filmed this January 2017. WHAT ELSE ARE THEY HIDING FROM US??” One commenter even said they don’t know if they can “trust” the guys anymore after being kept in the dark for so long.
But the boys aren’t taking the bait and have yet to comment on the buzz — making no mention of it in their most recent interview with Billboard, during which they chatted about their favorite places to travel, what kind of energy fans brought to their North and South American tours, where they want to perform next, and even belted out a line from Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber‘s hit song, “Despacito.”
Despite being super tight-lipped, J-Hope teased the BTS ARMY — the name their fandom goes by — with a special message at the end of the interview when he said, “Dear fans, please wait for our next move and…gracias!” And while it’s unclear if that was a sly reference to their upcoming reality show, it’s obvious the boys are working on something behind-the-scenes.
