Streaming giant Prime Video has released the first trailer of the upcoming BTS film, Yet to Come, which revisits the beloved K-pop band’s iconic Busan concert. The concert movie will be available on November 9 in more than 240 countries and territories. In the clip, we see the band members dressed in purple sweatshirts as they match steps with each other to some of their top hits, including ‘RUN.’ ‘RUN’ is an instant fan favorite that was featured in a choreography video as well as a TikTok dance challenge. Its lyrics are also a personal touch, with the septet singing about their own experiences with depression and anxiety.
This is a must-see concert film for BTS fans, as it provides a peek into the heart and soul of the band. It also features some of their most iconic songs that are adored by the global ARMY. Moreover, the video is packed with plenty of Easter eggs and callbacks that will strike their fans’ hearts in a new way.
For example, the yellow bus in their No More Dream music video resurfaces in this film. The same can be said for the cargo container in their Run music video. Likewise, the winged statue that Jin sees in this film is reminiscent of the one seen in their Blood Sweat and Tears music video.
Many other scenes in the film will evoke nostalgic memories for ARMYs worldwide. For instance, the seating formation at the film’s start is similar to that of their Spring Day music video, released in 2017 as part of their repackaged album, You Never Walk Alone.
Another scene shows RM running across train tracks, a nod to the infamous run meme that started on Twitter. Finally, the blue train compartment RM passes by is identical to the one he crosses in their Run music video.
In addition to the concert footage, the trailer is nostalgic as it pays tribute to BTS’s home city. The video includes various shots of the band members performing on stage, as well as their interactions with their audience. It will be a treat for any BTS fan, especially as the band takes a break to pursue their solo careers and military service.
Directed by Sam Wrench, the BTS Yet to Come movie will be a must-see for BTS fans worldwide. Its theatrical release earlier this year surpassed $40 million in box office sales and was the highest-grossing event cinema release of the year. This was due to the success of its IMAX and 4DX screenings, as well as its widespread popularity in China. As the film approaches OTT platforms, we can’t wait to relive some of the magic.
