K-pop concert movie “BTS: Yet to Come” will stream exclusively on the Amazon-owned Prime Video platform on November 9 in most territories.

The movie includes 19 performances of the boy band’s hit tracks including “Dynamite,” “Butter,” “RUN,” “MIC Drop,” and “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).” These are mixed with speeches, electrifying stage designs, and spectacular fireworks displays.

The original free-of-charge concert was performed by seven-member BTS in Busan in October last year in support of the Korean port city’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo.

The K-pop idols played at the Asiad Main Stadium, with approximately 50,000 people in attendance, after organizers had to move it from the original venue. An additional 10,000 people in the city watched a live retransmission at Busan Port and a further 2,000 gathered at tourist hotspot Haeundae.

The concert was also live-streamed on Weverse, the fan platform operated by Hybe, by 49 million viewers on the platform, though some fans complained that the service appeared overloaded as images froze or jarred.

The concert movie – remixed and re-edited as “BTS Yet To Come In Cinemas,” – enjoyed a limited theatrical career in January this year.

The new concert movie is produced by HYBE, CJ 4DPlex, and Trafalgar Releasing. The deal with Prime marks a break from the band’s previous relationship with Disney+. 

The Disney streamer previously uploaded the 4K concert movie “BTS: Permission to Dance On Stage – LA,” featuring the band’s performance at the Sofi stadium in November 2021, “BTS Monuments: Beyond the Star,” a docuseries that charted the band’s rise and rise; and travel show “In the Soop; Friendication,” with BTS member V.

“We are thrilled to partner with Hybe in welcoming BTS: Yet to Come to Prime Video,” said David Simonsen, director of Prime Video in Southeast Asia. “We know the popularity of high-quality Korean content worldwide and we look forward to delighting consumers around the globe with BTS: Yet to Come. We are excited to see the concert movie and this genre find new audiences from different countries on Prime Video.”

Prime Video said that the movie will be available in 240 countries and territories, starting November 9. Among the laggards is Japan, where it will only be available from December 1.
