Unlike most, I know very little about the team, so this really appeals to me. It would be nice to know what all the fuss is about. But I liked the BTS music form I’ve heard. They join Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigothe beetles, Elton Johnand many others that have partnered for specials with Disney since the launch of Disney+ a few years ago as well, quickly becoming one of the most popular streaming services for this sort of thing.
