A new fantasy webtoon and web novel inspired by K-pop superstars BTS will be released later this week, the group’s management agency has said.

Hybe said its original story of ‘7Fates: Chakho’ will be available on Naver Webtoon, an online platform for web-based comics run by South Korea’s top portal operator, on Saturday, Yonhap News Agency reported.

‘7Fates’ is based on tales of a tiger-hunting corps called ‘chakhogapsa’ during the Korean Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897). It tells the story of seven boys, based on each member of BTS, tied together by fate, who overcome difficulties and grow as a group.

It is Hybe’s first BTS-themed original story in cooperation with Naver Corp. as part of its strategy to expand its business to web-based comics, novels and gaming by creating original content featuring its artistes.

Its two other originals on the 2022 slates — ‘Dark Moon’, a vampire fantasy story starring ENHYPEN members, and ‘The Star Seekers’, a magical fantasy featuring Tomorrow X Together (TXT) — will be released on the same website on Sunday and Monday, respectively, according to Hybe.
