BTS’ recent announcement that the members will be taking a break to pursue individual projects is reflected in the upcoming reality series that will only feature BTS member V. 
The slated travel show, titled “In the Soop: Friendcation,” will follow V as he joins “Itaewon Class” star Park Seo-jun, “Parasite” star Choi Woo-shik Choi, ZE:A member Park Hyung-sik and rapper Peakboy on a surprise vacation.
Jessica Kam-Engle, Disney’s head of content for Asia Pacific, said in a statement that the “new titles will captivate consumers worldwide and look forward to introducing more music content on our service.”
“We can’t wait to show you these shows and hope you enjoy them as well,” V said in a video announcement uploaded on Disney’s various YouTube channels on Tuesday.
