Chart-topping Korean boy band BTS is already known for having one of the internet’s most dedicated, devoted fanbases. And for those of you looking to take your BTS obsession to the next level? Well, here’s your chance. Airbnb is renting out a Korean countryside villa the group stayed in during their own reality TV show.
The enormous rental plays a pretty crucial role in the group’s TV show BTS In the Soop, which essentially follows the seven members of BTS – Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook – as they wind down and take part in various hobbies.
The villa is in the Pyeongchang region of the South Korean countryside, an area also known for its lush forests and luxury mountain resorts. (You may remember it as the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics.)
The idea behind the Airbnb listing is that guests will be able to live out the pastimes of the various BTS members, from trampolining like Jungkook to milling around on a unicorn in the pool like Jin.
If you’re a a K-pop or BTS fan, this probably sounds downright dreamy. Here are a few pics of the place, all of which should look exceptionally familiar to anyone who’s seen BTS In the Soop.
Even if you’re not a BTS stan, the In the SOOP estate is a pretty special place to stay. Not only is the space vast and airy, but it also boasts its own pool and gym, as well as spectacular views out over the surrounding Pyeongchang countryside.
The good news is that all this comes very, very cheap. The estate costs just $7 (£5.80) – a reference to the group’s seven members – to rent for the night. There is, however, a catch: it’s only available for one night, August 29. And it’s first come, first served.
In other words, demand is likely to be exceptionally high indeed. You’ll be able to book from 3am BST on August 3 – and you can find more details here.
