The Run BTS episode will be released on November 10, exclusively through the Weverse app. The boyband faced off against South Korean League Of Legends esports team, T1, in a previous episode of the series.
BTS are also set to release their new album, ‘Be’, later this month on November 20. The upcoming record will feature the lead single ‘Life Goes On’, which the boyband will perform during their appearance at the 2020 American Music Awards on November 22.
Earlier this year, BTS released the song ‘Dynamite’, which became the group’s first to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track also sold 265,000 downloads within its first week of release, the highest recorded since Taylor Swift’s 2017 single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’.
