Key East announced, "Digital Adventure (DA) has signed an exclusive contract with BTS for their Japanese promotions. We will be supporting them fully with our management know-hows and networks."
DA is Key East's Japanese subsidiary, and manages the Hallyu cable channels KNTV and DATV is Japan. Key East artists such as Bae Yong Jun and Hara are managed by DA in Japan.
DA said, "Even before BTS debuted officially in Japan in 2014, there was high interest to them through interviews and fanmeetings. Their 2nd album 'Youth' that was released last year in September got #1 on the weekly Oricon chart for the first time for an overseas hip hop artist. We will be supporting them so they can have a wider promotional range in Japan."
