HYBE Corporation’s BTS POP-UP: MAP OF THE SOUL in Bangkok was a success, which launched on May 1 and will remain open until July 25. Due to popular demand, the entertainment company has announced more stores are scheduled to open in three other cities in Asia.
Already open in Singapore until August 15, the space’s interior is inspired by the group’s fourth full-length album, MAP OF THE SOUL : 7. ARMYs can shop from a selection of lifestyle items including BTS’ song-themed products, TinyTAN characters, practical home goods and basic fashion garments. “Amidst the pandemic situation, BTS’ pop-up stores are comforting fans around the world with the band’s music by offering a direct and in-person experience,” HYBE stated in a press release. “Along with additional openings in Asia, we will continue to provide more fans with valuable opportunities to meet artists’ music through various products and space experiences.”
