“BTS has achieved great success in Italy. We believe the number of ARMY in Italy reaches somewhere in the tens of thousands,” a representative at Sprea told Yonhap News Agency. ARMY is a term used to describe the K-pop group’s global fan base.

The magazine is posed to meet fans’ growing demand for news and collectibles related to their favorite K-pop idol band, the Sprea representative added.

A representative at the Korean Cultural Center in Italy said that the center will review ways to cooperate with Sprea. The center has been approached by Sprea for potential future cooperation. “We plan to review areas of cooperation with the potential for promoting ‘Hallyu’ or Korean culture-at-large,” the representative said. Hallyu refers to the Korean wave of popular culture. (Yonhap)
