In a three day movie screening worldwide, BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan, roughly translated to Bulletproof Boyscouts) swept away the nation with their very personal documentary.

From November 14 – 16, 2018, theaters presented the 190 minute documentary, “Burn the Stage”— a continuation of the Youtube documentary Burn the Stage (2018)

The movie speaks about life on and off stage and the hardships and rewards that come along with it. The film reveals both the professional and personal level as members of BTS including Kim Namjoon, Kim Seokjin, Kim Taehyung, Park Jimin, Min Yoongi, Jeon Jungkook, and Jung Hoseok discuss their passions as artists and people.

The movie takes place during their 2017 “Wings” tour, where they trek around the world as their popularity rises.

Throughout the movie, Bangtan Sonyeondan talks about the pros and cons of being a performer, such as the rewarding feeling of entertaining thousands and the injuries that come with their choreographies.

The members go into detail on how they are surprised at being able to sell out large arenas. Several members of the group go through stress and physical injuries, in one case, youngest member Jeon Jeongguk suffers from exhaustion.

The group leader rapper Kim Namjoon’s (stagename RM) signature ‘99 percent’ speech,  expresses his gratitude towards fans: “If we helped your dream and your life a bit with our existence, our music, our performances, our pictures or videos, even if it’s not big, if we could reduce your pain from 100 to 99, 98 or 97 that makes our existence worthy.”

Burn the Stage (2018) debuted with $14 million, breaking the the record that was previously held by One Direction’s Where We Are (2014).
