You probably know the K-pop group BTS to thousands of fans around the world. In business since 2013, the group announced that it was on hiatus a few months ago, in particular because of compulsory military service. An opportune time to fully dedicate oneself to the solo careers of some of the seven members, including that of J-Hope. Real name Jung Ho-Seok, he released his very first album in July 2022 “Jack in the Box” and was the first South Korean artist to lead the famous American festival. Lollapalooza. It doesn’t stop there! J-Hope will have the right to a documentary Disney + named J-Hope in the Box. It is February 17 that this production will land on the American streaming platform. It will be a documentary that shows the artistic process and the recording of his album as well as his concerts, in particular his performance in Lollapalooza.
K-pop and documentaries
J-Hope is far from the only K-pop personality to have a documentary. The Blackpink had for example been entitled to a Netflix production called Blackpink: Light Up the Sky which traces the formation of the group and its rise. Each member of the group tells their point of view and experience. A documentary that was released on the occasion of their first album soberly called “The Album”. The BTS should also have another documentary “BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star”, this time dedicated to the whole group which should be released this year, even if no date has been announced so far.
