BBC orders BTS special

July 22, 2021

A new film for BBC One will explore the rise to fame of 21st century K-pop icons, BTS, as they make their debut in the Radio 1 Live Lounge.

BTS @ Radio 1 will be hosted by Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts, who will delve into the culture and industry that made one of the world’s biggest pop bands.

BTS’ Radio 1 journey began in 2017 with their first ever play on the station, which resulted in fans from across the globe sharing an overwhelming amount of support and excitement. In this documentary, Roberts will relive this moment and her trip to Seoul in 2018 where she met BTS’ choreographer, the minister for K-pop and the fanbase known as the ARMY.

Roberts will also reconnect with the band in an exclusive interview ahead of their debut in the iconic Radio 1 Live Lounge, where they’ll be performing award-winning hit Dynamite, new single Permission To Dance and a special cover of Puff Daddy and Faith Evans’ I’ll Be Missing You – that samples The Police’s Every Breath You Take – from South Korea.
