BTS will be joining the OST lineup for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film “Eternals”!
On October 18, American media outlet The Direct reported that BTS’s “Friends” sung by Jimin and V will be included in the “Eternals” OST. The following day, The Walt Disney Company Korea confirmed that “Friends” from BTS’s fourth studio album “Map of the Soul: 7” will be included in the film.
“Friends” was released in February 2020 as a B-side track on BTS’s “Map of the Soul: 7.” The song contains the story of same-aged friends and bandmates V and Jimin and is personally written, composed, and produced by Jimin. With its sincere message about friendship, the song “Friends” will be played in a specific scene in “Eternals.” In addition to BTS, the OST lineup includes world-renowned artists such as Carl Perkins, Skeeter Davis, Merle Haggard, Pink Floyd, Lizzo, and more. This will be the second time a Korean artist has been featured in a Marvel film following PSY‘s “Hangover” in “Black Panther” in 2018.
“Eternals” is based on a comic book series that was created in 1976 by Jack Kirby. It tells the story of a superhuman race called the Eternals that was birthed millions of years ago as a result of genetic experiments on Earth by the Celestials. Korean actor Ma Dong Seok will star as Gilgamesh, a hero with super strength that competes with the likes of Thor and Hercules. The film is directed by Chloé Zhao of “Nomadland” and stars famous Hollywood actors including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, and Gemma Chan.
“Eternals” will premiere on November 5.
