The original travel reality series B.A.P Untact, featuring the eponymous K-pop act, is set to launch on E! in Asia on May 12.

The 4×1-hour show gives viewers a different perspective of the K-pop superstars Yongguk, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup and Zelo as they travel to the tiny southern Korean island of Nodo, which has a total population of 18 people. The cameras follow the group as they go back to basics and learn to adapt to island life.

The Korean travel reality series with local-language subtitles will air on E! starting May 12 at 10 p.m. through its E! Asia feed.

“As the home for celebrity-focused content in Asia, we know our viewers will be thrilled with the addition of B.A.P Untact to E!’s slate of Asian productions,” said Christine Fellowes, managing director of NBCUniversal International Networks, Asia Pacific. “E! has seen tremendous success with our previously acquired K-pop shows from IHQ, including Triple H Fun Agency and The Friends in the Adriatic Sea, Feat. GFriend. The addition of B.A.P Untact is an exciting next step for us in our programming strategy.”
