– E! – the pop culture powerhouse of NBCUniversal International Networks – today announced the premiere of B.A.P Untact, a highly anticipated new series featuring one of the hottest K-pop acts in the world, B.A.P. The four-episode, 60-minute Korean travel reality series with local-language subtitles will air on E! on Saturday, 12 May at 10 pm through its E! Asia feed. The series will also be made available through its on-demand service E! Zone, with subtitles.
B.A.P Untact gives fans a different perspective of the K-pop superstars Yongguk, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup and Zelo as they travel to the tiny southern Korean island of Nodo with a total population of 18 people.
The cameras follow the group as they go back to basics and learn to adapt to island life. Each episode features band members being tasked to complete different missions, working together with the island inhabitants in order to secure their next meal.
“As the home for celebrity-focused content in Asia, we know our viewers will be thrilled with the addition of B.A.P Untact to E!’s slate of Asian productions,” said Christine Fellowes Managing Director, NBCUniversal International Networks, Asia Pacific. “E! has seen tremendous success with our previously acquired K-pop shows from IHQ including Triple H Fun Agency and The Friends in the
Adriatic Sea, Feat. GFriend. The addition of B.A.P Untact is an exciting next step for us in our programming strategy.”
B.A.P Untact is produced by IHQ in Korea.
