BTS, the South Korean boy band breaking hearts and records, will make their cinematic debut on November 15th, when ‘Burn The Stage: The Movie’ hits screens around the world. The film, which will boast a ‘fomo’-inducing limited run, is set to deliver an in-depth glimpse of life on The Wings Tour 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III, complete with concert footage, behind-the-scenes privileges, and heartfelt interviews.

Movie tickets will be available for purchase online beginning on the 22nd of October, and interested fans are encouraged to sign up ahead of time to receive important updates and a fair chance of attending the event. The official ‘Burn The Stage’ website can be found here.

The Wings Tour 2017 was comprised of forty shows, across which BTS sold approximately 550,000 tickets. ‘Burn The Stage: The Movie’ will serve as an extension of a series of eight documentaries released on YouTube Red in early 2018, (titled ‘Burn The Stage’ as well), which also logged moments of the Live Trilogy’s massive third chapter.

Currently, Jungkook, Jimin, V, Jin, Suga, RM, and J-Hope are on the road performing the LOVE YOURSELF Tour, presently a 41-show run around the world with more dates to be announced. Earlier this week, BTS entertained two sold-out crowds at London’s O2 Arena. Despite a backstage heel injury limiting Jungkook to a seated performance, Tuesday’s show received awe-filled reviews. Douglas Greenwood of The Independent remarked that “seeing BTS perform to hysterical fans felt like witnessing the birth of a new phenomenon.” Seeing as BTS are now the first Korean act to play an arena in the UK, the expansion of the BTS phenomenon will not be slowing anytime soon.

The group clinched a 2018 American Music Award for Favourite Social Artist on October 9th. Their fans, known as the ‘ARMY’, donated enough voting support to help the guys defeat Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, and Demi Lovato. Any dedicated ‘ARMY’ does not hesitate when it comes to spreading the joy that BTS bring them and the k-pop world. If you missed their live shows near you, and don’t want to wait until November to learn more about 2018’s biggest boy band, you can catch BTS on the Graham Norton Show tonight at 10:35 pm, BBC One.
