A new Disney docuseries called BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star will show how the South Korean boyband BTS got started and how they've changed over time. Even though there isn't an official release date yet, Disney+ Singapore tweeted a teaser trailer with the information on Wednesday. It will debut in 2023.

The seven-member group promised fans that the album would include never-before-seen videos and intimate stories of their growth from their debut to the present. RM said that they invite everyone to hear their stories of blood, sweat, and tears, which is the name of a song from the South Korean boy band's second studio album. Jung Kook went on to say that he hopes people discover previously unknown aspects of them.

The tweet says that this is an "exclusive #DisneyPlusSG series," but it's not clear if Beyond the Star will only be available in Singapore or if it will also be shown in other countries. Disney+ representatives did not respond to Variety's request for comment right away.

The 4K concert film BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage, which featured the boy band's SoFi Stadium concert in late 2021, and the travel show In the Soop: Friendcation, which stars V alongside Parasite actor Choi Woo-shik and rapper Peakboy, were also teased earlier this year. Before, teaser trailers for these three BTS-related games also talked about Beyond the Star.

When word of the planned documentary spreads, the quintet will be concentrating on their solo projects. BTS said earlier this year that they would be taking a break to focus on their own careers. They were clear that this would not be a permanent situation. The band continues to promote group content, like the upcoming series, while still creating successful solo ventures, so they've definitely honoured their promise.

The organisation will likely be affected by South Korea's required military service requirements up until 2025. Jin will supposedly be the first to receive service because he is the group's senior. In October, the singer and Coldplay released a single together called The Astronaut. In July, J-Hope released his first solo album, Jack in the Box, and was the main act at Lollapalooza. Jung Kook performed at the opening ceremony for the World Cup in Qatar, and RM's first solo album, Indigo, is coming out this Friday, December 2.
