What is BTS’ ‘7 Fates CHAKHO’ all about?

The most anticipated webtoon is BTS’ 7 Fates CHAKHO. The series will feature the seven BTS members as characters who come together to save the city from monsters. It is an urban fantasy story inspired by a community of tiger or bear hunters in the Joseon Dynasty called chakhogapsa. It will feature urban legends such as goblins and bulgasalyi or bulgasari (unusual hybrid of monsters who are ‘impossible to kill’). As Jin states,

“The story begins with monsters called ‘Beom’ invading the city of ‘Sin-si’ to hunt humans. And the seven hunters of the ‘Beom’, called CHAKHO, have gathered.”

Each character performs their different roles in avenging the death of their loved ones, making certain dangerous decisions and many more things in a city that has been corrupted. The seven men, bound by fate, must come together to defeat the evils while navigating their struggles and tribulations.
