[BTS #방탄소년단 BON VOYAGE SEASON 3 EP. 0 REVIEW]
The start of a new adventure…
It’s time for the start of a new V.FRIENDS season which means, the start to new reviews of V.LIVE contents! Remember about two years ago when BTS traveled to Bergen, Norway on their first season of Bon Boyage? Well, they’re back at it again, but this time to a new destination…
The first episode, essentially considered the ‘free’ episode of the whole series begins with the boys on a filming set. Taehyung, also known as V, receives a call about their upcoming BON VOYAGE trip! He tries to milk out some information about the trip from a staff member but sadly fails to get a sneak peek of where they’re headed this year. Excited to find out, they throw out guesses which include Spain and the U.K.
The video goes on and the boys are now arriving at a restaurant/cafe where they will have a meeting and find out where exactly their destination will be. Jungkook exits the room and comes back with Korean rice wine, also known as 막걸리 (makgeolli), and everyone, of course, gets excited.
As they continue deciding what the destination could be, one of their directors comes in and begins an explanation of the situation. They took into consideration everything they’ve done thus far, and reveals the location.
TAN TAN TAN! They’ll be headed to the small country of Malta! There, they will be able to explore the country without a guide and restrictions! They even have the ability to drive around the country if they wish! The boys show their obvious excitement and anticipate the trip and much-needed vacation. In clips shown, the country is small but quite beautiful, with various sites and surrounded by the ocean. Sigh, what a beautiful country I would definitely love to visit. They even decide who will drive in the left-hand traffic country! Jungkook quickly says he wants to drive, but Jimin says NO LOL. In clips, you can see that he does get to drive, as well as Jin and J-Hope.
They decide that they need a new opening for this new trip. They begin by trying to figure out an opening to their reality show, many of the ideas earning cricket noises LOL. In the end, they decide “BON VOYAGE! LET’S WATCH!” to which they all make a toast to.
The video ends, and of course, as the viewer, I’m anticipating the whole series! You can definitely watch it on VLIVE+ as some episodes are already available. English subtitles are available for us international fans who do not speak fluent Korean, and the videos are in 1080p HD quality!
Overall, in terms of video quality, this episode gets a ★★★★★ 5 stars out of 5! It’s crystal clear, there’s no lagging, and subtitles are added to enhance the experience for fans who can’t read or speak Korean.
In terms of video content, considering this IS episode zero out of the whole series, meaning it’s just the pre-gaming, this episode gets a ★★★☆☆ 3 out of 5. It would’ve been nice to get a little bit more content in terms of what did they want to do when they arrived to Malta, clips of them packing, some of their crazy adventures and any pickles they get into, basically anything to hype up the whole series and make you WANT to purchase the coins to watch it. Although I am anticipating it and will support them by purchasing the series, it felt like episode 0 was missing a little more since it is the pre-series episode to get you hyped for it.
As far as audio and editing goes, you can automatically tell this is a professionally edited and recorded series, meaning it’s not like the regular V.LIVES which are more intimate and not HD quality or edited with effects. Because of this, both categories definitely get ★★★★★ 5 out of 5 because who doesn’t love reality shows featuring their favorite idols???
OVERALL, the rating for the episode would be a 4.5 stars out of 5! If you would like to watch this series or this episode, please feel free to click on the links below! 😀
