Fans were quick to react to the news with great enthusiasm and an extensive spectrum of responses and critique can be found online.

The captivating force known as the ‘Bulletproof Boy Scouts’ (or just ‘BTS’ to its passionate fans) appeared unstoppable, surpassing sales records as well as overcoming stereotypes throughout their journey. However, when the South Korean military commanded them to serve an 18-month tour of duty, their unbeaten winning record came to a sudden halt.

Explore the boys’s route from being musicians and idols to becoming soldiers in the chapters that comprise the comic book biography FAME: BTS.

The release of FAME: BTS has been tentatively scheduled for January 10.
