The much-awaited documentary on BTS is set for its premiere this week on OTT.
The premiere date for the K-pop concert film BTS: Yet to Come is November 9 on Prime Video. The movie features 19 live renditions of the band's most popular songs. A few examples are Dynamite, Butter, RUN, MIC Drop, and Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment). These are interspersed with speeches, thrilling set designs, and fireworks extravaganzas.
A Free concert for 50,000 fans
Seven members of BTS gave a free concert in Busan, South Korea, in October of last year to help the city's quest to host the 2030 World Expo. When promoters were forced to find a new location, they played in front of an estimated 50,000 fans at the Asiad Main Stadium. 10,000 more people watched a live rebroadcast at Busan Port, and 2,000 more gathered in Haeundae, a well-liked tourist destination.

Weverse, Hybe's fan platform, also broadcast the event live. The corporation boasted 49 million users on the platform; however, some fans reported experiencing freezing or jerking when watching due to the service's apparent saturation. For a short time in January of this year, the concert film, reworked and retitled BTS Yet to Come in Cinemas, played in theatres. The film's theatrical distributor, Trafalgar Releasing, is not participating in the film's digital release.
Hybe and CJ 4DPlex have produced a new concert film. This new agreement with Prime Video ends the group's existing partnership with Disney+. The Disney streaming service has previously released a 4K concert film titled BTS: Permission to Dance On Stage—LA, which features the band's performance at the Sofi stadium in November 2021; a docuseries titled BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star, which details the band's meteoric rise; and a travel show titled In the Soop: Friendication, which features BTS member V.
Prime Video Takes Over
According to David Simonsen, director of Prime Video in Southeast Asia, they are thrilled to partner with Hybe in welcoming BTS: Yet to Come to Prime Video. They are well aware of the worldwide appeal of premium Korean material, and they anticipate great success with BTS: Yet to Come. Simonsen is thrilled that Prime Video is introducing concert films to viewers in so many new places.
On November 9, Prime Video announced that the film would be made available in 240 countries and territories. Japan is one of the countries that won't get it until December 1, 2023.
