BTS stores to pop up in four Asian cities

Hybe, the entertainment company behind Kpop superstars BTS, is to launch three more BTS pop-up stores across four Asian cities after success in Bangkok.

The company said it will roll out the album-themed stores in Manila, Taipei and Singapore this year, due to the increasing demand for BTS merchandise.

Following the launch in Bangkok earlier this month, the BTS Map of the Soul stores will be launched in Manila this week and Taipei this September. The two stores will offer products themed to the Kpop group’s hit album ‘Map of the Soul:7’.

Meanwhile, the Space of BTS store will open in Singapore this Friday (May 28), featuring everyday items and fashion products. The store will remain open until August 15.

“The K-pop act’s stores have made visits to fans across the globe even amid the new coronavirus pandemic,” the company said in a statement.

The launch of BTS-themed pop-up stores follows the release of the group’s latest hit ‘Butter’ last week.
