7Fates: CHAKHO is set in the near-future with fantasy elements drawn from the tiger hunters, or chakhogapsa, of Korea’s Joseon Dynasty. Together, the main characters, based on the members of BTS, whose fates are destined to intertwine face trials and tribulations as they attempt to track down the elusive tiger.

7 Fates: CHAKHO is part of a previously announced agreement between HYBE and Naver Webtoon to produce original stories starring artists under the entertainment company. Stories inspired by ENHYPEN and TXT, titled ‘Dark Moon’ and ‘The Star Seekers’ respectively, have also since been released.
