Attention, Filo ARMYs: Don’t panic just yet! Missed the store’s opening launch? No worries! Reservation slots for the Space of BTS pop-up in Manila are opening again today. Here are the details and guidelines you need to know before breaking plans and rushing to your computer screens.
BTS Pop-up: Space of BTS now in Metro Manila
The BTS Pop-up: Space of BTS launch came shortly after the BTS Pop-up: Map of the Soul Showcase ended its successful six-month run last October. The new pop-up store is here to stay from 25 Dec 2021 to 31 Mar 2022, and will take place at the Upper Ground Floor SM Megamall Building B.
Fans of the Bangtan Boys were surprised with a teaser photo by the mall on their Facebook page at the beginning of December 2021. Later, it was confirmed on Weverse, the official social media platform for K-Pop fans and their favourite idols.
The announcement outlined admission and purchasing guidelines for the pop-up store in Metro Manila. We highly suggest you check out the schedule for reservations in advance for more chances of saving a slot. More session dates will be added next year, so be sure to keep an eye out for that too!
