Feb. 15 (UPI) -- The members of South Korean boy band BTS cover Billboard for a new, limited-edition box set.

The magazine announced in a tweet Thursday that it will release a special package featuring Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook on eight different covers.

"BTS stars in Billboard package featuring 8 different covers," Billboard captioned a photo of the set on its official Twitter page.

"A first for us! We are selling BTS limited-edition box sets, featuring 8 full-size posters and 8 different covers feat. each member, all in a custom box! #BTSonBillboard," the company added.

BTS appears as a group on the magazine's Feb. 17 cover, and spoke to the publication in a lengthy interview. The boy band attributed its success in part to its ability to connect with younger generations.

"Honestly, from our standpoint, every day is stressful for our generation. It's harder to get a job, it's harder to attend college now more than ever," RM said.

"And this isn't just Korea, but the rest of the world," Suga added. "The reason why our music resonates with people around the world who are in their teens, 20s and 30s is because of these issues."

BTS, which last released the EP Love Yourself: Her in September, gained significant international exposure last year. The group expressed its hopes for the future while wishing fans a happy Lunar New Year this week.

"Our goal for this year is to enter Billboard's Hot 100 chart, and personally, I want to collaborate with other artists or release my own music," Suga said. "And lastly, I hope for peace to arrive in this world."
