The first work to start the project is BTS’ original story “7Fates: CHAKHO,” which will be unveiled for the first time on January 15th, 2022. It’s an urban fantasy set in the near future, inspired by the “chakhogapsa,” known as the tiger hunters in the Joseon dynasty. Seven young men whose fates are intertwined join forces as they overcome the ordeals and grow up.
