BTS concerts at SoFi to stream on Disney+ with new deal

If you didn’t make it to Inglewood last year to see BTS live at SoFi Stadium, don’t worry. The K-pop band’s LA-area concert series will soon be available to stream on Disney+.

The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific and BTS talent management company Hybe announced Monday that they are partnering to bring exclusive content spotlighting the South Korean group to the streaming platform.

New titles coming soon to Disney+ include BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA, a concert film that documents the group’s mini-residence at SoFi Stadium. The footage will show live performances of the BTS hits “Butter” and “Permission to Dance.”

During November and December, the group performed in front of a live audience for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic during four consecutive shows at SoFi.

“We are extremely excited to be working with HYBE to bring their original content, created with powerful artist IP, to our global streaming services, including Disney+,” said Jessica Kam-Engle, Head of Content for Disney Asia Pacific, in a statement.

“This collaboration represents our creative ambition – to work with iconic content creators and top stars in Asia Pacific so their talent can be enjoyed in a variety of ways by mainstream audiences,” she said. “We believe these new titles will captivate consumers worldwide and look forward to adding more music content to our service.”

Another project the streaming giant is developing is In the Soop: Frienddication, a travel reality show starring BTS’ V, Seo-jun Park from Korean drama Itaewon Class and Woo-shik Choi, the Oscar winner for best picture “Parasite” as well as South Korean entertainment luminaries Hyung-sik Park and Peakboy.

Finally, “BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star” – a documentary series chronicling BTS’ journey to becoming a global superstar – will premiere on Disney+ next year. The series will draw from BTS’ music library and will feature behind-the-scenes footage of members of the septet as they prepare to launch the next phase of their careers.

“This will be the start of a long-term collaboration as we bring a wide range of HYBE content to global audiences for fans who love our music and artists,” Hybe Chief Executive Park Ji-won said in a statement.

“The Walt Disney Company has a long history of building franchises and nurturing music artists,” he said, “with their … brands and platforms.”
