BTS’ RM has always been recommending books, movies, songs and places to visit. Whether it is through interviews, their live or his solo Live. During his most recent live, a fan asked him what kind of K-dramas he can recommend, and he said his favorite shows are “Sweet Home” and “Dear My Friends”. “Sweet Home” is originally a webtoon that has been adapted into the series that is on Netflix. After recommending the series, “Sweet Home” trended with over 56,OOO Tweets, and even Webtoons (the official twitter for all things webtoon) retweeted a post about the series with a caption “The power of BTS”
Many people started to watch the series and even shared their screen shots of their experiences, while some started requesting that Netflix should work on getting the second season
“Sweet Home” is an apocalyptic horror South Korean television series starring Song Kang, Lee Jin-wook and Lee Si-young. Based on the Naver webtoon of the same name by Kim Kan-bi and Hwang Young-chan, which recorded over 1.2 billion net views, the series was released on Netflix on December 18, 2020.
“Dear My Friends” is a South Korean television series starring Go Hyun-jung, Kim Hye-ja, Na Moon-hee, Go Doo-shim, Park Won-sook, Youn Yuh-jung, Joo Hyun, Kim Young-ok and Shin Goo. It aired on cable network tvN on Fridays and Saturdays at 20:30 (KST) for 16 episodes from May 13 to July 2, 2016.
The popularity of K-dramas has been on an all time high and most can argue that it is because of the “BTS Effect” BTS members have always shared their love for webtoons/ anime, this has led to the interest from across the board. in interviews, BTS have spoken about their favorite characters, they have won characters from anime series like Suga wore a Naruto outfit in one of their performances.
BTS V’s “Sweet Night” brought so much attention and interest in the drama “Itaewon Class” which both have won several awards. “Hwarang” became popular as new BTS fans discovered that V was an actor in the historical drama.
