Boyband BTS members have taken it upon themselves to ensure that fans have access to Korean lessons, should they want to learn the language.

The videos will be launched through WeVerse.

According to the agency, "Learn Korean With BTS" was created with the help of researchers from the Korea Language Contents Institute (KOLCI) and professors from the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies.

In addition, 37.8 percent of the respondents said Korean pop culture is the most common way to learn about South Korea followed by economy, 16.8 percent; security, 13.9 percent; cultural heritage, 10.5 percent; and sports, 8.3 percent.

You can soon learn Korean with BTS and we honestly can't think of a better skill to learn during social isolation. It was also reported by a leading entertainment portal that the idea of starting language lessons came about after the band's passionate fanbase called for subtitles in English to be added to the band's videos.

The series has come from Professor Heo Yong of the Department of Korean Education at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, who has aimed to make them as fun and educational as possible, using the boys as an global figure to rally fans.

International Olympic Committee hopes to agree new Tokyo Olympics date 'as soon as possible'
The Olympic Flame will remain in Japan and the name Tokyo 2020 will be used regardless of when the Games will be held. Top American Olympic cyclists are voicing support for the decision to delay the Tokyo Olympic Games .

"However, the current global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has made it impossible at this time to predict the scale of the outbreak during the dates of the concert in April, alongside increasing uncertainty about the cross-border movement of concert staff and equipment".

Earlier this year, news emerged that Big Hit would be launching a "Learn Korean With BTS" content series.

"There are only limited ways our fans could learn Korean easily".

The videos will certainly have to do with 3 mins long as well as will certainly present easy Korean grammar as well as expressions.

Meanwhile, BTS' latest album Map of the Soul: 7 earned the #1 spot in the Billboard 200 chart while the lead single ON peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The first three episodes are already out - they were released at 2:00 pm KST (1:00 am EST) on March 24.
