Cinema tickets for a documentary starring K-pop boy band BTS have been selling like hot cakes across the country, with some venues selling out within 30 minutes of release.
Burn The Stage: The Movie was only scheduled to be released on Nov 15 in 32 GSC cinemas nationwide, with just one to two screenings per venue.
However, according to a spokesperson from GSC, almost all the 12,000 tickets were snapped up soon after they went on sale on Oct 22, with all except two venues, Miri and Mentakab, selling out.
Due to the overwhelming demand, GSC has announced additional screenings for the show on Nov 17 and 18.

The movie will open in South Korea as well as in some 40 countries and regions around the world, including North America, Europe and Southeast Asia, the band’s management agency Big Hit Entertainment said in a recent report by The Korea Herald.
