  • Time for our "Life & Info" segment,... where we focus on information useful for your everyday

  • life.

  • Today we're going to talk about the House of BTS, a pop-up store in Seoul dedicated

  • to the K-pop boyband.

  • We have our Kan Hyeong-woo with us in the studio to tell us more.

  • OK, Hyeong-woo, fill us in on this pop-up store that is causing a fan frenzy in Seoul's

  • most famous neighborhood.

  • Mark, so the House of BTS actually opened about two weeks ago on October 18th.

  • The pop-up store is located in between Seoul's Gangnam station on subway line two, and Sinnonhyeon

  • station on line nine.

  • The four-story complex is divided into two sections.

  • The basement is the main showroom...where visitors can check out BTS-related merchandise

  • and mark down what they want to buy in the catalog... which is given to customers in

  • the line outside the store.

  • After finishing their order, fans can receive what they have bought on the first floor.

  • But before that, the second and third floors are designed to make fans feel as if they

  • are in the boy band's famous music videos... with scenes recreated from their 'Idol' and

  • 'DNA' videos.

  • There is also an augmented reality booth where fans can "dance" with BTS.

  • So it's BTS heaven for fans... to say the least.

  • I hear that some fans get there super early in the morning to get in because the lines

  • get long fast as you'd expect... also if our viewers want to go themselves is it free to

  • enter if you just want to browse?

  • Anyone can get in free of charge.

  • But yes, you are right about having to wait your turn.

  • I went there and talked to some of the visitors earlier this week.

  • Here's one of them.

  • "We came here and we lined up at six in the morning, exactly and stayed for five hours.

  • But you know what?

  • It's worth the wait.

  • We are here now.

  • This place is so amazing.

  • Worth the wait and I'm really having a good time."

  • The House of BTS is open from 10 AM to 10 PM.

  • It's closed every Wednesday, but it will stay open on Christmas and New Year's Day both

  • of which fall on a Wednesday this year.

  • A member of staff working there said they only allow about 2-hundred visitors inside

  • the complex at one time.

  • I was also told that around 17-hundred people get to go inside each day...meaning if you

  • get in line outside after 3 PM, you might not be able to see what's inside the store.

  • So you better get there early if you want to have the full BTS experience.

  • Okay.

  • That's a good tip.

  • We see these fans from all over world that love BTS so much.

  • But Hyeong-woo, why do BTS have such a global appeal compared to other K-pop groups?

  • You know...experts have been looking at the phenomenon to try to analyze what's happening.

  • But I thought the best explanations should come from BTS fans firsthand.

  • Let's find out.

  • "They deliver very positive energy and also they give good conception to fans all around

  • the world.

  • And they give good influence to fans around the world."

  • "At first, I never liked a K-pop group, but I saw BTS.

  • My heart is going down and I get my heart on the floor because of BTS.

  • That time is (when) I'm starting to love BTS."

  • Whether it's about the boyband's positive messages or simply love at first sight, fans

  • from all over the world are showing a tremendous amount of support for BTS.

  • I met a fan from India at the pop-up store and asked her if she wanted to say anything

  • to her idol group.

  • "They should come to India, first of all because it's really hard to go to other countries.

  • Other than that, we love them so much.

  • And we are already and always there to support them no matter what.

  • And thank you for everything that you do for us like the hard work they put in for us and

  • all that."

  • Well Hyeong-woo, that's some true love from

  • the fans.

  • I guess that will do for now.

  • Thank you

  • for coming in today.

  • Always a pleasure.

  • Now, let's take a quick look at some other events that are taking place across South

  • Korea.
