CHICAGO, Feb. 5, 2019 — BTS’s World Tour “Love Yourself” documentary is coming back to theaters across the U.S. as a response to popular demand worldwide. The tour was filmed at the Seoul Olympic Stadium in Seoul, South Korea in August 2018. The documentary is planned to return to the big screen on Feb. 9th and Feb. 10th in selected countries, including the U.S.

“BTS”, an acronym of “Bangtan Sonyeondan” or “Bangtan Boys,” is a South Korean boyband that has gained international recognition for their music and performance. They are the first Korean group to attend the Billboard Music Awards and the Grammys. In September 2018, BTS made a great leap in their career when they had the honor to be UNICEF’s ambassador and gave a speech at the United Nations. They were later featured on the cover of Time magazine’s international edition as “The Next Generation Leaders”. The boyband has had millions of fans all over the world, and their fandom is called “ARMY”. From their performance at the Billboard Music Awards 2018 (BBMAs), BTS has made their name a phenomenon.

On January 26th, 2019, “BTS World Tour: Love Yourself”, an exclusive screening of the band’s most sellout concert of 2018 globally, initially hit movie theaters for a one-day event in 102 selected countries around the world. However, due to a wide demand from the audience, Fathom Events and Pathé Live have decided to bring the experience closer to the audience by re-entering the documentary in cinemas across the U.S. and other listed countries around the globe.

“BTS never disappoints! I got to re-experience the Love Yourself Tour from more rounded angles thanks to this event. All the feels and memories came flooding back,” said Amy Chu, a junior majoring in Bio-Chemistry and currently a Peer Mentor for the CMS dorm at UIC. She is a devoted fan of BTS, “Any ARMY who has had the privilege of going to one of their tours knows that you go but don’t remember it at the end of the night. You were on a euphoria that remembering the experience can be hard if it wasn’t for what was recorded on our phones. Thank you for this amazing experience to watch these 7 talented human beings!”

The documentary is expected to be available at theaters on Saturday, February 9th and 10th, 2019 with various time frames. The event will also be available for viewing in eight ScreenX equipped movie theaters across the country.
