BTS just launched their first commercial film for Philippine telco, SMART.
From photocards to digital lightsticks, plus exclusive content, here's what you need to know about BTS' "passion with purpose" campaign
Ahead of the campaign called "Live Your Passion with Purpose," the group shared memories of their Philippine visits, as well as moments with Filipino ARMYs whether online or offline.
In a press conference held earlier today (22/04) ahead of the commercial film release, BTS revealed that they hope to visit the Philippines to see and perform for Filipino ARMYs all over the country once the COVID-19 situation settles down.
RM mentioned how they used to visit the country for almost every tour (their last Manila stop was in 2017): "I'd like to visit again as soon as possible."
