ARMY has been clamoring for a second season of BTS In the Soop pretty much since Season 1 finished airing in October 2020. Because the pandemic has kept BTS from touring, the Korean band has had to get even more creative with their content and how they interact with ARMY. Enter BTS In the Soop, a delightful reality show that saw the seven members take a break from their regular work schedule to pursue hobbies at a lake-side cabin. If you’ve never watched any of BTS’ many web series and are curious about the biggest band in the world, In the Soop is a great option to get to know RM, J-Hope, Suga, Jin, Jungkook, V, and Jimin.
Prior to the pandemic, BTS had released one season of their travel reality show Bon Voyage every year since 2016. The most recent season, Season 4, was released in 2019. While In the Soop is not technically a travel show, as it saw the members stay within South Korea, it does have a similar premise: Season 1 saw BTS travel away from Seoul to a leisure location, highlighting the same “just some friends, hanging out” vibes as Bon Voyage (albeit with more of an emphasis on rest and relaxation). In this way, In the Soop was the Bon Voyage of 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to limit what is safely possible when it comes to work and travel, ARMY had already begun to speculate about the possibility of BTS In the Soop Season 2. Now, it’s confirmed! The official In the Soop accounts made this glorious announcement earlier today…
BTS In the Soop Season 2 Release Date
All we know officially so far is that In the Soop will premiere in October, but it’s a safe bet to expect BTS In the Soop Season 2 in the first half of the month. In 2020, HYBE officially announced the arrival of In the Soop roughly three weeks before the premiere. If they follow a similar pre-broadcast marketing schedule, then BTS In the Soop should premiere in early October. If Season 2 consists of eight episodes, as Season 1 did, that means that Season 2 will wrap up before the holiday season, at the end of November or in early December.
Seventeen In the Soop is currently in the middle of its eight-week season, and is slated to wrap up its regular episodes by September 28th and it’s behind-the-scenes extras by October 12th. BTS In the Soop Season 2 could launch following either of those dates. We do know that In the Soop Season 2 will be available to pre-order starting on September 23rd.
BTS In the Soop Season 2: Where to Watch
Presumably, In the Soop Season 2 will continue a similar model as Season 1, which means international viewers can legally watch the episodes via purchase on the Weverse Shop. Season 1 was broadcast on Korean network JTBC, with an extended version of the episode becoming available for those who had purchased the entire season the following day. Additionally, those who bought the season on Weverse had access to a behind-the-scene extra for every episode. Season 1 of BTS In the Soop is currently available for purchase via Weverse Shop. After purchasing, you can access the content via the Weverse platform on either mobile or PC. In the Soop Season 2 will be available to pre-order starting on September 23rd.
How Much is BTS In the Soop Season 2?
BTS In the Soop Season 1 is currently available for $27.99 for the entire season. Presumably, Season 2 will be around the same price. In order to buy In the Soop, you need to download and set up an account on the Weverse Shop app, which is the official store for BTS merch.
BTS In the Soop Season 2 Poster
The In the Soop official account just released the official poster for Season 2 of BTS’ sojourn, with the tagline “Between the everyday life and the rest.” Notably, it features an animated dog superimposed onto the image of the seven members with their arms around one another, somewhere camping in the forest. Will there be random dogs, i.e. BTS’ Bon Voyage Season 4 adventures in New Zealand, or perhaps could In the Soop feature BTS’ own dogs? Trying (and failing) to not get too excited at that latter prospect…
In the Soop Season 2 Clues
Hopeful speculation that there would be a second season of BTS In the Soop was already circulating within online ARMY communities (see relevant prayer circles), but the flames were fanned by a few recent social media posts. First, the official BTS account tweeted two Namjoon-centric messages that gave off In the Soop vibes…
Then, the official In the Soop accounts posted an animation in which a character sits by a campfire roasting marshmallows as BTS’ “Zero O’Clock” plays in the background. A location sign with both the BTS and In the Soop logos stand next to him. The accompanying caption reads: “On days when you are tired and tired for no reason, At 12 o’clock at night, the world seems to hold its breath. Our own forest to rest for a while.”
The arrival of an In the Soop-themed pop up at Hyundai Seoul also added to the hype of a possible Season 2.
