‘BTS: Yet To Come In Cinemas’ Was EVERYTHING!

On one faithful day in 2019, BTS released the music video for their hit single ‘Boy With Luv‘ featuring Halsey and in terms of global popularity they were talked about for a while at that point. Being naturally curious about K-Pop and what the hype is about, I checked it out and all of a sudden, a blue-haired Taehyung was staring directly into my soul and I haven’t known peace since. Jokes aside, compared to the elite ARMY, I’m relatively a small fan but I keep with their work. Their latest album ‘Proof‘ has been on a loop lately and it’s because of it that I fell back in love with this group. Knowing the unfortunate circumstance of their break and knowing they won’t be together again properly till 2025, I definitely wanted to be there for this last movie, to not only have fun but to say ‘see you again’.

Ever since I saw Wallows live in concert last month, I have discovered the joys of concert movies in cinemas and I never knew they were so much fun? I saw the ‘Billie Eilish: Live at the 02‘ movie which covers her ‘Happier Than Ever‘ tour and it was a blast! I had seen a BTS movie back in 2019 which I even reviewed but it was more of a documentary than a concert film. ‘BTS: Yet To Come In Cinemas’ is a full-on concert from start to finish. I went with one of my best friends who is a beginner ARMY herself and we were just having the time of our lives. We both had like a list of songs that we wished they would perform and for the most part, they did which was amazing. We were most excited for ‘Run BTS‘ so you can imagine our shock and excitement to learn that it was the SECOND song? I don’t know what the thought process was for that because I can tell you that after that performance we were so overwhelmed and lost in awe like we couldn’t process what was going on. The choreography was just like perfection I don’t know how else to describe it, they are just magical. The audience was on the verge of combustion I swear.

It also goes without saying that these guys just have some insane fucking stage presence. The relentless output of energy they give out, the demanding high notes, and the intense choreography all while looking flawless, needs to be studied. Also, I love, love, LOVE how they gave each member a moment to shine. My bias being V / Kim Taehyung gave me what I wanted and then some. Needless to say, there were moments where I forgot to breathe like it’s actually unreal just how much power these guys have because why was I about to like ascend to a higher realm because he took HALF his jacket off? What’s funny, however, is going back and forth on who my bias-wrecker is because before the concert it was Suga but I don’t know… Jungkook is looking real nice and right and uhh yeah, just the hair, the clothes, the effortless vocal range and high notes like I think no actually, I see the light, Jungkook stans you are RIGHT. Namjoon being the absolute beast that he is, slaying every performance like that’s my guy right there. Jin’s vocal improvement really pays off with high, sustained notes, Jimin being the birthday boy and just getting emotional, and J-Hope literally serving energy upon energy while looking cool as fuck, like again, who is doing it like them? You have to see it to believe it.

It is also worth mentioning just how this is filmed. I truly felt like I got the best seat at the concert, the shots made the most out of every performance. My favourite performances were ‘Run BTS’, ‘Butter‘ aka the costume change that ended me and ‘Spring Day‘ which was the song I really wanted them to sing and I lost my shit when they did. Out of 19 songs, you would think I would mention more but to be honest, it really does seem like a blur, I was so out of it just in awe trying to process that I can’t really remember what certain songs looked like. I do remember Tae giving it his ALL in ‘IDOL‘ though, I remember that very vividly. The segment at the end where they’re focusing on the members and their speeches to the ARMY and the K-Drama of it all with the excessive usage of slow-motion, it was quite hilarious because they almost made it seem like they were gone, it was so dramatic. That being said, it was quite emotional seeing them talk about their journey to that moment and what the future holds. It was very bittersweet but they left it on the best note possible. Nothing but love from the audience.

Overall, ‘BTS: Yet To Come In Cinemas‘ was a total blast! It was an hour and forty minutes of my friend and I screaming, squealing, and just sitting back in awe as these men gave their entire souls to their art. It’s like I fell in love with them all over again. I wish them nothing but the best during their service, speaking of, congrats Jin on that new position! I can’t wait till we get to unite once again in a few years. I PURPLE YOU!

BTS: Yet To Come In Cinemas‘ is now screening in select theatres for a limited time.
