While citizens of the world are stuck at home, good news was released on March 22 for video-based content to help teach Korean to global K-pop fans. The project, called "Learn Korean With BTS," was announced by BTS's label Big Hit Entertainment.
The purpose of "Learn Korean With BTS" is to present a fun way of teaching non-Korean speaking fans the Korean language. In this way, global fans can enjoy the music without having language barriers.
