BTS' first feature film "Burn the Stage: The Movie" hits cinemas worldwide

 
Thrilling news for BTS fans. The first official movie of the K-pop sensations finally hit theaters worldwide. Nearly one million tickets have already been sold, proving once-again the boyband's global popularity.
Our Seo Eun-kyung has more.
 
"Burn the Stage: The Movie" opens at cinemas this Thursday and this theater is packed with BTS fans, celebrating their idols' cinematic debut.
 
"I came to see the movie because I wanted to get to know and understand how the BTS members think."
Though the movie was released on a weekday, where only 10 to 15 percent of seats are usually occupied, the popularity of BTS pushed that figure up to more than 80 percent, according to one movie theatre.
 
"The BTS film has almost as many tickets reserved as a summer blockbuster. More than 150 thousand people bought tickets before its release."
 
On the first day, 95 percent of the movie's audience gave it a positive evaluation, saying they would recommend the movie to others.
 
"It was nice to see RM working with such joy. I could tell it was real. His happiness seemed to spread positive energy around the audience. I found it beautiful."

An extension of the YouTube series of the same name, Burn the Stage: The Movie, shows the group backstage, interviews with the seven members, and of course, live performances.
 
The movie will be shown in around 70 countries, and 940-thousand tickets have already been sold worldwide as BTS fans flock to see their heroes on the silver screen.
