Today is the day! Today is the finale of SAVE ME, the webcomic set in the BTS universe that connects the last three years of clues in their videos. Read on for a special giveaway in celebration of the finale!
I live under a rock and had very little knowledge of BTS as a group or their sprawling video universe until SAVE ME debuted in January. I read the first three chapters of the comic and was hooked, and from there I tumbled down the rabbit hole into their videos thanks to links provided by thoughtful fans on Twitter.
For those of you who may have lived under the same rock I did, uber-popular K-Pop group BTS has a massive shared universe that started out centered around their music videos, which feature characters based on members of the group, and from there expanded to include short films, short stories, and webcomics.
Set seven years after the characters have gone their separate ways, SAVE ME is a Groundhog Day-type story where one of the boys gets the chance to go back in time and save his friends. The comic launched with over 1 million subscribers and 24 million views, topped trending topics, and was in the top 10 on multiple charts in the App store.
Even for someone with no prior knowledge of the universe, the characters and storyline were extremely compelling – although I’ll admit things started making a lot more sense once I got into the videos! This is a really good comic on its own. I really like the art style and the color palette. The final two episodes of the comic are now available and holy cow, I was not prepared for that ending!
