SEOUL -- K-pop band BTS will release a graphic book series that depicts lyrics of the seven-member band through a graphic-novel like storytelling.

Big Hit Entertainment, the agency of BTS, said in a statement on Tuesday that the K-pop sensation will release "A Supplementary Story: You Never Walk Alone," a graphic book series, including six books -- "Save ME," ' House Of Cards," "RUN" and "Butterfly". The sixth book of the graphic lyrics series is a special book that contains stories of the other five books.

"We would like to propose a new way to enjoy music through the graphic lyrics series, which will be introduced for the first time by BTS," Big Hit said. Graphic lyrics is a term created by Big Hit to describe a series of art books containing stories and messages related to songs' lyrics. The agency said that graphic lyrics series of other artists under Big Hit will also be released in the future.

According to the agency, pre-orders for BTS' graphic lyrics books will be available through selected stores including BTS' online community platform WeVerse and Amazon for four days starting June 24. The books will hit the shelves of other online stores on June 29.

BTS, which has an online-based international fan club, utilizes different media and technology to communicate with fans. The band has used social media to hold online fan meetings. Arts exhibitions were held across the world in the theme of the South Korean band.

Earlier this month, BTS attracted more than 700,000 viewers worldwide with its online concert. The concert provided new opportunities to the global concert and performance industry that sank deep into a depression due to a COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns.
