Pop sensations BTS have shared the new trailer for their upcoming film Bring the Soul: The Movie, which provides fans a behind-the-scenes look at the K-pop stars as they tour Europe on their Love Yourself trek.
“Shining brighter than any light on the stage, now the group invite fans behind the spotlight,” the documentary’s synopsis states. The trailer contrasts breath-taking concert footage with unvarnished scenes of the K-pop group just being themselves. The boys clink wine glasses over a meal, get ready in their dressing room and work out at the gym. You can check it out below.
A statement from the band reads, “On the day following the final concert of their Europe tour, on a rooftop in Paris, BTS tells their very own stories from experiencing new cities to performing in front of thousands of Army across the globe. An all-new glimpse into BTS’ world away from the stage, featuring intimate group discussions alongside spectacular concert performances from the tour, this is a cinema event not to be missed.”
The trailer also features testimonies from fans who explain what BTS means to them. “Listening to their music has helped me move on and I realised that I deserve better,” one fan says. In the final, moving moment of the clip, RM (aka Rap Monster) expresses his gratitude to an audience: “I didn’t know anything about how to love myself, but you guys taught me how to love myself.”
Bring The Soul: The Movie, which begins a limited theatrical run stateside on 7 August, is BTS’ third feature film in the last two years, following 2018’s Burn the Stage: The Movie and the concert film Love Yourself In Seoul that was released earlier this year. Tickets are already available for pre-order via the film’s official website.
2019 has been a whirlwind year for the history-making K-pop outfit, as they became South Korean group to land a No.1 record in the UK, present at the Grammys and play Saturday Night Live, just to name a few.
