BTS shared a new trailer for their upcoming "Telepathy" special as they continued to tease the return of their popular web series Run BTS.
Run Between August 2015 and last October, BTS ran for three seasons, during which time the boy band debuted 153 episodes and three specials. There is no word yet on a fourth season. Vocalist Jin, however, said that the group "did some recharging and brought more fun back with us" when announcing the new special last week.
A new teaser for the upcoming special episode, titled "Telepathy," which will air on August 16, reveals that BTS will be answering questions to see how well the seven members know one another. They appear to get quite a few of them wrong, and arguments add drama to the hype. The band is led to a enigmatic location while wearing blindfolds at the conclusion of the trailer.
BTS are currently taking a break from performing as a unit to allow members to concentrate on solo material. Although Run BTS will soon return, a cookbook is on the way, and "Bad Decisions," their collaboration with Benny Blanco and Snoop Dogg, was released last week, they still seem to be somewhat active. Earlier this week, too, Swedish duo Galantis teased a collaboration of their own with the group.
At the end of July, BTS rapper J-Hope made history as the first South Korean artist to headline Lollapalooza, performing tracks from the BTS catalogue as well as his recent debut solo album, "Jack In The Box." Earlier this week, J-Hope announced a limited-edition vinyl pressing of the album.
In other BTS news, South Korean defence minister Lee Jeong-seop shared at a National Defence Committee that the group may still be allowed to hold concerts and “continue performing for national interests” while its members serve their compulsory military terms.
