Blue Sky: Cast & crew of K drama based on BTS were asked to sign secrecy waiver ahead of first script reading?

For BTS ARMY, when it was announced that a K-drama was in the works which would look into the lives of BTS members from before they became a septet leading up to their debut in 2013, it was like an instant serotonin boost. Big Hit Entertainment's Bang Si-hyuk had shared recently at a press conference, via Entertainment Weekly, "Big Hit is currently preparing a drama series together with a leading Korean production company based on the Bangtan Universe, slated for release in the second half of 2020. It will be a story set in the BU about how the seven boys first met."

Titled Blue Sky, the hunt was on for the casting of the seven members with fans pitching in their own choices of who should play RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. However, according to the latest report via Allkpop, the first script reading was recently completed in secrecy with the cast and crew of Blue Sky. Moreover, the actors, actresses, their management representatives, production staff and crew were allegedly asked to sign a secrecy waiver before the first script reading took place.

Secrecy waivers in Korean entertainment are usually signed by variety program crew members to not reveal any spoilers or by crew members who are working on a program sold for distribution in foreign countries. Hence the Blue Sky team being asked to sign a secrecy waiver is very rare. They have also been warned of serious penalty fees if they violate the secrecy waiver.

As for when filming for Blue Sky begins, the current surge of COVID-19 cases in Seoul could delay the desired shoot date further. Meanwhile, recent reports suggested that Seo Ji-hoon of To All The Guys Who Loved Me fame was roped in to play one of the BTS members in Blue Sky. However, Ji-hoo's agency issued a statement revealing that the 23-year-old actor was not offered a role.

"We have never received an offer for this drama. Nothing has been confirmed for Seo Ji-hoon’s next project. This is the first time we have even heard about this drama. We have not received any scripts with the same title either," the agency stated via Koreaboo.

Meanwhile, BTS is currently on cloud nine with the massive success of their latest single Dynamite. Not only did their song become the fastest track to reach 100 #1's on the iTunes Top Songs chart but Dynamite MV made YouTube history by garnering 101.1 million views in the first 24 hours of release. 

Moreover, BTS will be performing Dynamite for the very first time at the VMAs 2020 which takes place on August 31. Besides being nominated in four categories - Best Group, Best Pop, Best Choreography and Best K-Pop (the last three for On from Map of the Soul: 7), this is the first time ever that the septet is performing at the popular award ceremony. As for their next highly-awaited album, BTS will be releasing it in the fourth quarter of 2020 as Namjoon recently teased fans in their TODAY show interview revealing that the new album is a bit different from Dynamite.

Anonymous : Hello international BTS army, I'm an Indian army. I don't know whether you all know about the scandalous situation which has arisen here in India between the armies and one singer-songwriter neha bhasin. The starting was made by neha bhasin dragging BTS in her tweet saying disrespectful stuff towards them and also K-pop industry. From her side, she said she did that to save badshaah who is another singer. She later deleted the tweets due to lots of debate about those tweets. She tweeted saying she didn't know about bts before but then after deleting her Twitter account she started saying that BTS armies had been bullying her over a year. She was very impractical and also spread rumors such as BTS lip syncing under the mere word of "factual". She also recieved a lot of opposition which were done with respect but she ignored them and looked at only the worst ones. She took this forward and it had also become like a war between Indian armies and neha bhasin. Some immatured fans and some blinks even said spiteful words against her but most of the opposition was respectful. She didn't look at the good ones and now she has filed complain to cybercrime against all the spiteful ones. She claimed that she recieved rape threats from armies. Many newspapers have also released these and they even had the audacity to tag BTS official Instagram account on this rape threat complain. Till now no such proof has been found but they are dragging armies down. We sincerely need your help. Please

Anonymous : What I personally think is that the characters will play the story that is revolving around bangtan universe not Bts lives and keeping bts members as their own characters will be very hectic and tiring for members as well as company too due to their packed schedule... Let's give rookie actors chance rather than the famed ones

Anonymous : Of course they can't play themselves, they are full-grown men! This will be the story of when they didn't start yet. Now, the issue will be the fact that there's NO ONE in time EVER that can play WWH Kim Seokjin, that guy (whoever it may be) will just have to do. And he shouldn't feel like he can't fulfill the role, it's just that there's no other like Jin :)

Anonymous : The drama is not about BTS career but about the life of 7 boys in an alternative universe called the Bangtan Universe (BU). The events are fictional and you can learn about the story in the little diaries in BTS's album (since LY:her) and in the BTS's videos that have the mention "BU content certified" at the end of the description.

Anonymous : I disagree for beyond the scene to appear as the actors themselves. Why do I say this as an opinion? Simply because it would be like every Other movie or series made, when actors appear as themselves like a biography almost.
