BTS has broken a global cinema record with their successful 3-day concert in Seoul.

On March 13, media outlets confirmed that BTS's 'Permission To Dance On Stage - Seoul: Live Viewing’ event garnered a worldwide box office gross of $32.6 million. This was the first live worldwide cinema broadcast of a concert from South Korea, presented by HYBE Labels and Trafalgar

Living Legends, their growth is just astronomical really, if I can recall their Burn The Stage did 18.5M. Bring The Soul The Movie grossed 24.3M after a few days of release. While Permission To Dance On Stage In Seoul did 32.6M. IN ONE SINGLE DAY. Outselling Batman. On top of that their sold-out concerts from Seoul to Vegas, BTS really helping revive the concert and cinema industries in 2022. They've already hit rock bottom before, now the only way is up for these guys and the sky's the limit. BH/Hybe is also smarter than a mug to hit the cinemas and should continue to do so for those who can't attend concerts in person👏🏽
