Description

THE FIRST EVER OFFICIAL BOOK—

Published in celebration of BTS’s 10th Anniversary, stories that go beyond what you already know about BTS, including unreleased photos, QR codes of videos, and all album information.

After taking their first step into the world on June 13, 2013, BTS will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut in June 2023. They have risen to the peak as an iconic global artist and during this meaningful time, they look back on their footsteps in the first official book. In doing so, BTS nurtures the power to build brighter days and they choose to take another step on a road that no one has gone before.

BTS shares personal, behind-the-scenes stories of their journey so far through interviews and more than three years of in-depth coverage by Myeongseok Kang, who has written about K-pop and other Korean pop culture in various media. Presented chronologically in seven chapters from before the debut of BTS to the present, their vivid voices and opinions harmonize to tell a sincere, lively, and deep story. In individual interviews that have been conducted without a camera or makeup, they illuminate their musical journey from multiple angles and discuss its significance.

In addition, portrait photos that show BTS as individuals and artists open the book, and throughout there are concept photos, tracklists of all previous albums, and over 330 QR codes. As digital artists, BTS has been communicating with the world through the internet and this book allows readers to immediately access trailers, music videos, and more online to have a rich understanding of all the key moments in BTS history. Complete with a timeline of all major milestones, BEYOND THE STORY is a remarkable archive—truly everything about BTS in one volume.

I truly enjoyed the insight BTS has offered us into their journey for the past 10 years. It hasn't been an easy path, the road was covered in obstacles and sometimes enormous brick walls. Despite being looked down on by the industry and ignored as a 'group that will never make it', BTS has proven everyone wrong with their incredible work ethic, ambition, and raw talent. I recommend this book to anybody who is even somewhat interested in what it was like becoming the greatest pop group of our century.

Engaging Read For ARMY and non-ARMY Alike

Arlene - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve always thought BTS was a prime candidate for sociological study (7 very different people living/growing together for 10+ years in a fishbowl environment--at the advent of social media, no less!), a marketing case study (both in innovative strategies as well as in consumer behavior), and psychological analysis (how some individuals manage to overcome fraught situations and relationships with positive impact.) This book touches on all of that. The members' personal reflections add so much here. They read like insight into their souls—so honest and real, just as fans have come to know them; and the book draws a clear line between this introspection and the creation of each album--even to the creation of individual songs. QR codes placed strategically throughout the book link to relevant videos and blog posts, creating an engagingly interactive experience. I thought i was drawn to the “Map of the Soul”, “Wings”, “Love Yourself” and “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” albums for their psychological, literary, social, and coming of age references. Then I thought it was how BTS mixed multiple genres in one song, as they’ve made me more open to (and even enjoy) some musical genres I didn’t care for at first. But I still couldn’t articulate why i felt such a profound connection while exploring their music. This book helps me see that it’s the band members’ emotional depth and introspective thoughts laid bare through music, lyrics, dance, and videos that truly touch me. As people, we are drawn to and touched by universally experiential stories. It’s that very humanness that BTS demonstrates and communicates so well that resonates with and draws loyal fans from all over the world. This book continues that trend.

Finished reading the book and it was amazing. The book took me on a roller coaster of emotions. Some chapters made cry more than others and some made me laugh. At the same time, it made me reflect on my own life. 10 out of 10. You won’t regret reading it.
