Filming for the upcoming BTS-inspired K-Drama YOUTH has resumed after the decision was made not to use the actual names of the members for the characters.
The drama stopped filming late last year after fans raised concerns about the names of the characters. In the program, BTS’s fictional selves would go through tragic, dark, and abusive situations. Many fans worried that these imagined events might affect BTS’s real lives and reached out to Big Hit Entertainment to reconsider.
After these concerns, the production company, alongside the agency, decided to change the characters’ names and agreed to re-shoot the drama!
The production company hopes that there will no longer be any confusion emphasizing that the show is a narrative separate from the artist. Instead, they want to tell the story about school life and the coming-of-age of seven boys.
The production crew and actors have resumed shooting, but the date when the show will be aired has not been confirmed.
