There’s no stopping BTS from making history—and the BTS ARMY from emptying their wallets.
Aside from the release of the “BTS Meal” at McDonald’s this week, the BTS Pop-Up Store in SM Megamall will open its doors tomorrow, from May 29 to August 29.
The BTS Pop-Up Store features over 400 products like hoodies, sweatshirts, sticky notes, stickers, stationery items, band-aids, caps, keychains, and plush magnets, among others.
Heaven fit for ARMYs
The pop-up store feels like entering inside a BTS paradise. ARMYs will be welcomed with an aesthetically pleasing space where you can recreate iconic moments such as the Dynamite music video and the Wings album.
Of course, you can’t miss out on the TinyTan wall which includes adorable animated versions of the BTS members. A giant screen can also be seen at the end of the store too, where you can fangirl over BTS music videos like Life Goes On, Dynamite, Butter, and more.
The Pop-Up Store features products that represent the journey of BTS as artists. Aside from their highly successful album Map of the Soul: 7, they also feature well-loved eras like Boy In Luv, Idol, Fake Love, and more.
TinyTan items can also be found at the pop-store too, such as stickers, plush magnets, cushion blankets, and more.
Of course, you can’t have second thoughts about an item that catches your eye since the theme of the merchandise changes each week.
Before visiting the Pop-Up store, visitors are required to reserve their slots at the online booking platform MorningKall beforehand—with each visit limited to an hour. Only 30 guests are allowed to enter the store.

The “BTS Pop-Up: Map of the Soul” is a life-changing experience for Filipino ARMYs. So, get your wallets ready!
