Each episode of the show featuring the seven members of the group will have a fresh new topic, Big Hit Entertainment told local press.

The V Live online series has been a huge success on the platform, having produced 53 episodes as of Tuesday and still going. Episode 31, which shows the group playing a quiz show in pajamas, has been watched over six million times, the most watched episode to date.

BTS has over 9.8 million followers on Naver’s V app and 11.6 million on Twitter.

The group will also hold an exhibition titled “24,7=Serendipity,” which opens just days before the final “Run BTS!” episode airs on Mnet.
