Now you can keep your favourite K-pop idols at home with you.
Mattel Inc, who you may know as the famous makers of Barbie, will soon be blessing the world with doll replicas of none other than Korean boyband sensation BTS– and their stock prices have already gone up from it.

BTS is a groundbreaking band with lots of firsts under their belts: from being first Korean pop group to top the U.S. Billboard album charts, the first K-pop group to win the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017, to address the UN, and now they look set to become the first band to get their own dolls!
Since making the announcement on Twitter, Mattel is yet to release any other details such as a launch date or confirmed prices, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating excitedly about the collaboration.
