BTS Talk New ‘Be’ Album, the ARMY, and Bringing Korean Culture to the US

IT IS THE MORNING OF CHUSEOK, A KOREAN HARVEST FESTIVAL akin to Thanksgiving, and the members of BTS would normally be spending it with their families, eating tteokguk, a traditional rice-cake soup. Instead, Jin, 28; Suga, 27; J-Hope, 26; RM, 26; Jimin, 25; V, 24; and Jung Kook, 23, are working. Practicing. Honing their choreography.

'The Queen's Gambit' Scores as Netflix Most-Watched Scripted Limited Series to Date

“The Queen’s Gambit” set the record as the most-watched scripted limited series to date on — with 62 million member accounts tuning in to the show in the first 28 days, according to the company.There’s a caveat, though: The way Netflix reports viewing is based on the number of viewers who have watched at least two minutes of a piece of content, which is very different from how the TV industry measures audience. And the streamer cherry-picks which originals it decides to tout with the proprietary metric.Netflix boasted about the success of “The Queen’s Gambit,” saying that the show made the...

This means shows made for streaming can contain as much cursing, nudity and violence as the series calls for. While The Expanse was airing on Syfy, the creators were bound by cable television's rules, and as a...
