Another record set and broken by BTS.
Forbes just announced that the world’s biggest boy band has broken records with their latest concert film, BTS World Tour: Love Yourself in Seoul. So, it’s no surprise that their latest cinematic release will get another round of theater screenings soon.
The film hit theaters for one day only on January 26 with two showings per theaters and Big Hit Entertainment, Love Yourself in Seoul had the “biggest worldwide one-day box office ever for a cinema event.” The dilm attracted 1.2 million admissions, raking in $11.7 million worldwide. (These figures don’t include stats from Korea, which have not been confirmed yet. However, Big Hit estimates that the “admission numbers go up to 1.3 million” with Korea included.)
Love Yourself in Seoul was shot on Aug. 26, 2018, at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul during the first leg of the septet’s BTS World Tour: Love Yourself.
The film was released a mere two months after their previous record-smashing film, Burn the Stage which made $18.5 million at the gross box office and drew 2 million admissions worldwide.
Love Yourself in Seoul will have additional (and final) screenings on Feb. 9 and 10. The upcoming dates will be available in both 2D and ScreenX. Tickets are now available at loveyourselfinseoul.
