K-pop supergroup BTS may not have brought their concert to the UAE, but fans can still get in on the action by checking out their musical documentary Burn the Stage: The Movie which will be shown across the UAE this weekend. The movie will be shown in Vox, Novo and Reel cinemas.

The 85-minute film goes behind-the-scenes of the band’s 2017 ‘Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings’ tour (which ran from February to December 2017) and is based on a YouTube series of the same name.

The movie features live performances, award show highlights, off-the-stage moments and interviews with the seven members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook.

BTS debuted in 2013 but have risen in popularity in the past couple of years. Earlier in 2018, the group made history by becoming the first K-pop act to debut at No 1 on the Billboard 200 music charts, with their album Love Yourself: Tear.

They also broke another record when they released the music video for their song Idol. It became the most viewed music video online in 24 hours, reaching 45 million views.

The boyband also topped the 2018 Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list that ranks South Korea's most powerful and influential celebrities.

Back in September, the group spoke at the United Nations to urge young people to join global efforts against discrimination and poverty showing their influence in trying to reach out to younger crowd.

Burn The Stage: The Movie is out for limited release in UAE cinemas on November 15
