On 10th January 2023, BTS’ official YOUTUBE CHANNEL: BangtanTV uploaded a video invitation for the much-anticipated cinema release of their very successful YET TO COME BUSAN CONCERT on 1st February 2023. For some countries, ticket sales have opened today. We are still awaiting updates from cinemas in Qatar.
As a New Year’s gift for ARMY all over the world, the BTS [Yet To Come] in Busan will be shown in theaters worldwide on February 1. The Busan concert was the last LIVE performance of the group in 2022 prior to their military enlistment and was organized to support KOREA’s bid for the 2030 World Expo in Busan.
According to their official post, the film will be a special cinematic cut, “re-edited and remixed for the big screen.” It will feature new close-up angles and a whole new view of the entire concert. It will be played in over 110 countries and territories for a limited time only, with ticket sales opening on Jan. 10 at 4 p.m. PST and 7 p.m. EST (Jan. 11 at 9 a.m. KST/12 a.m. GMT/1 a.m. CET).
In addition, other websites also mentioned that it has been decided to release screenings in various formats such as ScreenX, 4DX, 4DX Screen, as well as general 2D theaters, to enjoy live performances more vividly. Here, the ‘Army Bomb Screening’, where people can enjoy a movie while waving a light stick, will also be held (but in Qatar will be subject to theater provisions). First, a variety of performances were announced in the press stills, from the group stage with the performance of ‘Run BTS‘ to the unit stage where you can get a glimpse of the different charms of the vocal line and rap line.
BTS is expected to convene as a group in 2025 after completing their mandatory military services and the release of their individual albums. Yet To Come is one of their last singles (included in PROOF album) before going on a 3-year break from their group activities. Personally, it is one of the saddest songs, the most heartfelt song after Spring Day which is very special to many BTS fans.
