BTS members gave webtoon fans a peek into the identities of the seven “monster hunters” that will be featured in the upcoming webtoon, “7 Fates: CHAKHO.”

Set to be released Saturday through Naver, the new BTS-inspired webtoon follows the lives of seven men who are destined to fight the “Beom,” the monsters that are killing the residents of the city of “Sin-Si.”

The official YouTube channel of the new webtoon dropped seven trailers Tuesday that revealed the background of the seven monster hunters featuring RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, J-Hope, Suga, and V.

RM (Do Geon)

BTS leader and rapper RM explains that Do Geon’s character is a crime expert who has survived hardships in life. He is skilled in weaponry and is depicted as mentally and physically strong. “At first, he refuses to join the CHAKHO team,” RM said, “But for some reason, as he keeps running into them, he starts thinking that maybe it’s his fate to become partners with them.”

Jin (Hwan)

Jin described Hwan’s character as an ordinary archer who became a monster hunter after his family was eaten entirely by the Beom.

Suga (Cein)

Suga described the character of Cein as someone who has gone through a lot in life including surviving an attack by the Beom. “He was traumatized by what happened and feels lost. But he meets six friends and forms a deep bond with them,” he said.

J-Hope (Hosu)

The BTS rapper said the character of Hosu was kidnapped by the monsters but survived by “doing something terrible” that led him to receive the “golden eyes.”

Jimin (Haru)

Jimin opened the trailer by saying that his character Haru is not human. “For a long time, he was a rock that guarded the gate to the world of the Beom and that rock became human,” he said. “Since he lived for such a long time, he has the qualities of a master.”

V (Jooan)

Unlike the other hunters who meet ferocious monsters, Jooan fell in love with a Beom. “But the love between a hunter and a hunted can’t be easy,” V said and invited fans to read the webtoon to find out how Jooan’s romance with a Beom will end.

Jungkook (Zeha)

Similar to Haru, Jungkook’s character Zeha is also half Beom and half human. Zeha uses his supernatural powers to help his friends catch the Beom. However, he must do this without letting them know that he is also a Beom.

"7Fates: CHAKHO" is an "an urban fantasy set in a city in the near future and inspired by the tiger hunters of the Joseon Dynasty. It will combine old stories of tradition with HYBE's own imagination," HYBE previously said, as per Koreaboo.
