FANS of a popular kpop band flocked to a cinema to watch a film about their tour.

Korean boy group BTS – Bangtan Sonyeondan, released a film on Thursday November 15, and East Lancashire BTS armies came together at Blackburn’s Vue cinema to watch it.

Consisting of members, Suga, RM, Jin, Jimin, V and JHope, BTS: Burn the Stage was shown in various locations for fans around the country to get a chance to see the one-off movie.

The kpop sensations have taken the country by storm recently, even performing for the very first time in the UK.

One Fan, Nadia Horne, from Blackburn was surprised to see so many people. The 23-year-old said: “It’s great to see so many local kpop and BTS fans.

“Being from Blackburn it isn’t easy to meet other fans as kpop meet-ups are usually only held in big cities.

“But BTS haven’t suddenly broke out in the UK in the last year, ARMY have been trying for years to get them the attention they deserve, and it’s finally paid off.”

Lauren Berry, currently studying a postgraduate degree as Physician Associate, said: “I liked them at first because they were a different style to other groups and developed their own music while spreading positive messages.”

“The choreography was amazing in the film, the effort they put into those dances is phenomenal, nothing like UK artists, and Suga was amazing in this film too.”

BTS, originally from South Korea, debuted in 2013, and have since become one of the world’s biggest boybands as the first kpop artist to reach number 1 in the Billboard Top 100 and number one on the US album chart.

The seven-piece band have also performed at the American Music Awards and won Social Artist of the year in 2017-18 at the Billboard Music Awards.
