WEBTOON, the world’s largest digital comics platform, and HYBE today announced a series of new teaser videos featuring 21st century pop icons BTS in advance of the 7FATES: CHAKHO webcomic launch on January 14. The new teasers are part of a Super Casting campaign between WEBTOON and HYBE to bring dynamic webcomic adaptations of original stories in collaboration with HYBE artists.
Each teaser video will star a different group member, starting with Jin on December 24, and be shared daily through WEBTOON’s official social media accounts. The new series of videos follows earlier official teasers, called 7FATES with BTS, and the mysterious CCTV Live that sparked global excitement among their fandom: Army.
Also launching today is WEBTOON x BTS, an event webcomic that will give fans access to behind-the-scenes content of the group. Each of the seven WEBTOON x BTS episodes will focus on a member of the band and can be found exclusively on the official WEBTOON app.
The collaboration between WEBTOON and HYBE is part of WEBTOON’s previously announced Super Casting campaign, a group of global partnerships that bring some of the world’s most exciting entertainment companies to WEBTOON. Super Casting allows major entertainment brands to work with WEBTOON and maximize the IP value chain across platforms and formats. Working with HYBE, WEBTOON continues its global leadership in building and nurturing global fandoms online.
