The second half of the year 2020 will include a BU-based drama and a BU-based game. It was also confirmed during the BigHit Conference that HYYH The Notes 2 is to be expected.
Merchandise/ Figurines have also been created based on these characters. The first set of figurines were based on the 'Save Me' Universe but was only created 'for display'. The second set of figurines, 화양연화_ARTTOY, based on the Highlight Reels, were in collaboration with Sticky Monster Lab and was sold via the BigHit Official Shop.
The timeline in Bangtan Universe is a very complex situation as the timeline has a tendency to reset due to Kim Seokjin time travelling. Thus, as of the current timeline, it is unsure whether particular events truly apply.
