Web comics featuring superstar boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, started to be released on Thursday under the title of "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life."
The band's management agency, Big Hit Entertainment, said it came up with the plot line for the 16-part series while Naver Webtoon affiliate LICO handled dramatization and production. New episodes will be released weekly in Korea and six other countries including China, Japan, Thailand and the U.S.
The plot is based on BTS' album "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever," with Jin returning from the U.S. to search for his old friends two years after the group's seven members separate. Seeing that they have suffered misfortune, he goes back in time to try and fix their mistakes.
A Naver Webtoon spokesman said, "The webtoon portrays some of the messages BTS try to deliver through their music and offers fans something new about the group."
