Time to add another book to our reading list! While the K-pop sensation, BTS, has been busy with their solo schedules, they actually have something up on their sleeves! This latest announcement from the group thrilled ARMYS, especially bookworm fans. On Thursday, The New York Times reported about the U.S. publisher, Flatiron Books, releasing the Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS on July 9, 2023 – so here’s where to buy and how to pre-order ARMYs!
The seven-member group has been active in their respective solo schedules. Jin and j-hope currently serve in the military, while SUGA is on his solo tour. RM is the cover of the upcoming June issue of Vogue, Jimin announced his participation in the soundtrack of Fast X, while V and Jungkook are probably busy with their albums and fashion schedules. How did this book come alive despite their busy schedules? Oh, the love they have for ARMYs!
BTS: Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS
To celebrate their fans’ 10th anniversary, BTS sets out to release a 544-page book to honor the group’s history and achievements. Journalist Myeongseok Kang and the members of BTS wrote the nonfiction book.
Flatiron revealed that aside from the 544 pages, it would include exclusive photographs. The book’s first printing would start at one million copies, BTW. So ARMYs, are you ready to get your hands on this upcoming book?
According to The New York Times, this announcement ended the fan speculations about the 4C Untitled Flatiron Nonfiction Summer 2023. This pop culture nonfiction book was rumored to drop this summer. And just last weekend, the booksellers noticed a July 9 release, and fans were quick to think about two possibilities: boy group BTS and singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.
Taylor has been known to use the number 13 often, and since the book’s initial release was supposed to be on June 13, fans speculated a Swift book to come. Well, it would also make sense if it was Taylor’s, as in her latest announcement of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), she may have mentioned July 9th.
However, the ARMYs received great news this week! The book coming soon is apparently for the ARMYs. Pretty sure the fans know these dates are two of the most relevant dates in BTS and ARMYs’ lives. June 13 marks the group’s debut date, while the Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth or ARMYs fandom began on July 9.
