ARMY vibe check: Is everyone still doing okay? Still breathing right? Brain still functioning? Good, good. The past few days have been quite eventful for Filipino ARMY! Let’s have a quick recap, shall we?
Not only did our favorite boys drop their latest single "Butter" exactly a week ago—which we’re still reeling over, BTW—the K-pop sensation also performed the undeniably catchy funk-pop ditty for the very first time at the Billboard Music Awards 2021 where they ALSO won four out of four awards: Top Duo/Group, Top Social Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, and Top Selling Song!
The septet also made a guest appearance on the long-awaited Friends Reunion! On top of that, the BTS x McDonald’s merch collection also just dropped. And it looks like our wallets won’t catch a break this weekend because the highly anticipated BTS Pop-Up Store is *finally* opening its doors at the SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall to the public starting tomorrow, May 29!
The store is a 190-square meter space that’s home to over 400 products. It’s where you can shop official BTS merch like stationery, apparel, and even home items inspired by MAP OF THE SOUL: 7. Currently, the items you can score feature songs like "Black Swan" and "ON", but take note that the store will feature brand-new products every two weeks, so there’s always something new you can look forward to! Of course, the BTS Pop-Up Store wouldn’t be complete without cool photo zones so fans and customers can strike a pose with or without their budols. LOL!
Not to be an enabler (JK, we’re totally here to enable you), but we got to take a peek inside the much-awaited store today and we’re here to show you *exactly* what you can expect when you drop by your scheduled visit! You’re going to want to sit back and kiss your hard-earned money goodbye because when we say there’s a lot in store for you, we’re not kidding. Keep scrolling for a virtual tour inside the shop and start taking notes so you can plan your shopping list!
The BTS POP-UP: MAP OF THE SOUL Showcase in Metro Manila will be open for three whole months, so you have until August 29 to visit the shop and save up for some (or all!) of the merch you’re eyeing. Don't forget to register first via Morningkall before you visit the ~magic shop~, ARMY! For more information, follow @morningKall on Twitter and Instagram, and get more updates via SM Megamall's SNS.
