Disney has some exciting projects coming up, including documentaries featuring K-Pop megastars BTS, as well as others in the pipeline.

The recent Walt Disney Company and K-Pop collaborations have been a joy to witness. We recently reported on how the Disney Parks are clearly K-Pop fans when they shared a lot of positive messages about the group TXT—Tomorrow X Together—from the same parent company as BTS, HYBE entertainment. Before that, we reported on this surprising collaboration between the pop powerhouse BTS and Disney.

Currently, fans can already find BTS: Permission to Dance, their concert movie at the Los Angeles Sofi Stadium, and In the Soop: Friendcation, following BTS member V and his friends on Disney+.

Choi revealed that Disney has several K-pop documentaries in the pipeline, separate from their concert movies. They shared that these are hopefully meant to satisfy not only fans of the bands but also people who are into music. She brought up the example of the documentary about Super Junior, one of the first generation of K-pop stars to develop a fanbase that extends beyond Asia.

We’ve found there’s also this interest in looking at what motivates them, how hard they train, and how they got there. Partly, it’s also about the nostalgia, the generation that grew up with them will think, ‘wow, I remember when that song came out, and I was doing that, and look where they are now’.

Choi also shared she was excited to see if they would attract a different audience with the BTS documentaries than the Super Junior projects as they are much younger than the former.

Along with this, Choi also talked about other upcoming projects, including a solo film for j-hope, who was the first of the BTS boys to start his solo career, and an upcoming docu-series called Monuments: Beyond the Star. For non-K-Pop related features, Choi shared that detective and legal dramas were a recurring theme—grittier subjects.
