BTS fans are excited for a new season of ‘In the SOOP’
In the past, BTS took part in an annual travel reality show called BTS: Bon Voyage. For BTS: Bon Voyage, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook travel to different places around the world. The fourth and most recent season was filmed in New Zealand and aired in 2019.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, BTS have not been able to travel to film BTS: Bon Voyage. With In the SOOP, BTS are able to take time out of their busy schedules and relax and heal. On social media, ARMY reacted to the good news that In the SOOP BTS Ver. will return.
One fan wrote on Reddit, “ITS was so healing and relaxing, I thought this day would never come. We’re getting more domestic Bangtan and I’m not prepared!”
“… That show gave us some amazing looks and some deep felt conversations, I wonder how their interactions are gonna be after another pandemic year,” wrote a Reddit user.
“I needed this SO MUCH. Working and being a human adult is exhausting. I can’t wait to curl up and watch my favorite strangers eat, sing karaoke, play games, eat more, and nap. THE HEALS ARE INCOMING,” another Reddit user wrote.
