BTS is the most popular band in the world, period. Whether you live in the U.S. or you’ve been a day one stan in South Korea determining your bias (favorite member) when the seven member band were still in their training stage, it’s hard to deny the success that Burn The Stage has gained since making the international leap in 2017. If six albums, two movies and a variety of television shows weren’t enough to satisfy your BTS fix, the global hitmakers are ready to give you another medium to enjoy their flawless faces and perfect voices.

BTS World is a mobile game that puts the player in the coveted role of the band’s manager. Starting back at day one, the player has the executive power to determine the fate of the band’s success around the world. From preparing the band for their debut to seeing their name on the top of the charts, players will get to see what happens if the band goes big or fails and the members have to return to their dreams before stardom. Collecting and upgrading cards can also help players unlock more story content including 10,000 new images and 100 clips of the entertainers. Between mini games and card quests, fans can also have one on one conversations with Jungkook, Suga, Jin, V, RM, Jimin and J-Hope.

On June 26 (Wednesday) BTS World will be out to the world and as the band celebrates their most recent commercially successful and critically acclaimed EP Map of the Soul: Persona, the boys and their label Big Hit have so much to celebrate. With their most recent remixes featuring global collaborations from Halsey, Charli XCX, Juice WRLD and Zara Larsson, BTS fanbase continues to grow organically while bringing different voices around the world together to honor the power of music. Social and political issues easily separate and engulf opposing parties in debates with little middle ground but music is always there to remind us that how we feel, react and share the music we love is very similar and needed in this mentally consuming world.
