Get excited, ARMY! On Sunday, Dec. 12, HYBE Labels dropped the first teaser trailer for BTS’ upcoming webtoon, 7 Fates: CHAKHO, starring RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.

Fans instantly went into a frenzy after watching the video, wondering what it could mean. Since BTS’ webtoon will be here in a matter of weeks, here’s everything you need to know about 7 Fates: CHAKHO, including the plot, release date, and more.
HYBE first announced 7 Fates: CHAKHO during a Nov. 3 corporate briefing. At the time, the company announced it had partnered with Webtoon and Wattpad to bring fans new and original stories through a series of webcomics and web novels featuring HYBE’s artists, such as BTS, TXT, and Enhypen. They said the first project, 7 Fates: CHAKHO, would star BTS and will release in January 2022.
