About Bring The Soul
It sounds like the regular documentary movie, like many others, but Bring The Soul is giving a different vibe. It’s like the audience can see the members diaries in visual form, seeing how they steal the time to rest in their own way, because they practice so hard due to their busy schedule.
Beside that, there are emotional moments, like when Jungkook is hurt and has to perform sitting in a chair, or when V cried when he lost his voice due to extreme fatigue, or when Jimin is injured but he keeps dancing on stage. Watching Bring The Soul, will make you fall in love with these performers, if you haven’t already.
Bring The Soul: The Movie was released in a total of 112 countries over 5 days, from August 21 until August 25. Worldwide, ARMY’s enthusiasm was incredible! The movie ranked 10th in United States box office sales in its first week, with a total income of $12.6 milllion!
The movie is set on the rooftop in Paris, where all the BTS members were sitting and telling their untold stories, completed by the back stage footage. Beside the stories, the scene editing was amazing, showing a vintage vibe from the aesthetic spot in France.

Message From BTS To A.R.M.Y
All over the series, BTS gives meaningful messages to ARMYs. Their first goal is to give the message ‘Love Yourself’ to people, and also to personify the message among the members. BTS hopes everyone can love themselves, however they are.
Beside the main message, the series also had a bunch of life lessons. The first one is their iron heart with their stable perseverance, for giving the best they could to satisfy the ARMYs. Every member also has their own positive things, like RM, the leader, who was relieved at what members did. Jin and J-hope became the most smiling members, even though they were in very bad condition. Suga demonstrated the high self-confidence and courage to face anything. Jimin, V, and Jungkook, were the maknaes who were always giving their best, although they were hurt that bad.
