BTS are no stranger to video games. The Billboard Hot 100 act previously launched a mobile video game entitled BTS WORLD, where users take on the role of BTS' manager, taking multiple adventures with the group. The app features real recordings and pictures from BTS, as well as an original soundtrack. BTS WORLD dropped in 2019 and has since attracted millions of players and won several awards. Earlier this year, the group also released BTS Universe Story, an interactive mobile game with Netmarble. BTS Universe Story centres around Jin helping bring together the rest of the members.
BTS also recently dabbled in esports in the latest episodes of their variety show, Run BTS, where the group invited League of Legends champions T1 to play Gang Beasts and Fall Guys.

The group follows a series of K-pop acts that have collided with the gaming world. EXO's Chanyeol recently drove up the popularity of independent game Among Us during a livestream, while his bandmate Baekhyun broke records when he livestreamed a game of PUBG. BLACKPINK have also recently stepped into the world of gaming, with a recent collaboration with PUBG.
