CEO of Big Hit Edu, Choi Young Nam said, “KF and Hankuk University of Foreign Studies are all partners who have a high understanding of our content, so we’re anticipating that we’ll be able to create even greater synergy in the future.”
“Learn! KOREAN with BTS” is a program that ultilises pre-existing footage of the boys themselves, such as Run BTS! and Bangtan Bomb, to teach fans about Korean culture and introduce vocabulary commonly used by BTS members.
