MANILA -- The long wait is over for members of the Filipino ARMY as BTS’ iconic pop-up store in Manila is set to open its doors on Saturday, offering a variety of merchandise related to the global music sensation.

The store, BTS Pop-Up: Map of the Soul, occupies a 190-square meter space at SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall that is decorated in industrial chic and features a giant screen that shows videos of the K-pop megaband.

Most of the products’ designs were inspired by songs from the band’s album, “Map of the Soul: 7,” released in February 2020. These include tracks like “On” and “Black Swan.”

Fans and customers can also take photos at a wall that features wings and with standees of TinyTan, animated versions of the BTS members.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the store will accommodate up to 30 guests at a time, with each guest given 30 minutes to shop. Other safety protocols such as temperature checks and physical distancing will also be enforced.

Those planning to visit the store are encouraged to register first through online booking platform Morningkall.

A separate queuing lane will be allotted for walk-ins but the store will accommodate only 5 walk-ins at a time.

BTS Pop-Up: Map of the Soul first opened in Seoul, South Korea in October 2020. Similar stores have been launched in Singapore and Thailand, and are set to open in Malaysia and Taiwan in the coming months.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the store’s opening since SM Megamall dropped teaser photos last month.
