The event was attended by the agency’s co-CEOs Bang Shi hyuk and Yoon Seok Joon, as well as beNX President Seo Woo Seok.
It was announced that: “We are currently preparing a drama based on the BTS Universe with a famous Korean production studio. The goal is to launch it in the latter half of 2020.”
