A spectacular treat awaits Filipino ARMYs and K-pop enthusiasts alike as Araneta City in Quezon City, Manila hosts an immersive exhibition featuring none other than the global sensation, BTS. 

Opening its doors to the public on Friday, May 17, the B★VERSE BTS, Singing the Stars exhibition promises an enchanting journey through the evolution of the group as a global sensation and as individual stars.

Having captivated audiences in Malaysia, Japan, and Thailand, the B★VERSE exhibit now makes its way to the Philippines — thanks to a collaboration with The Fact Music Awards (TMA), YiZ Entertainment, and Araneta City. It is set to run from May 17 to August 15 at Level 4 of the new Gateway Mall 2.

Filipino ARMYs can anticipate a truly immersive encounter, starting with a Virtual Reality (VR) Room where fans can enjoy BTS’ 2021-2022 TMA Stage, featuring performances of “Butter,” “Permission to Dance,” “Yet to Come,” and “For Youth” with a touching message at the end that will surely make any ARMY tear up.

The “Galaxy aisle” will then guide the fans through the “Milky Way” area wherein fans can explore the “Seven Planets” section. 

In the “Seven Planets” section, several themed rooms called “planets” are personalized for each BTS member, showcasing their individual journeys through photos and videos.

Taking pictures inside the members’ planets are prohibited, but here’s a rundown of what to expect:

  • RM’s Nature Planet is a space of an indoor garden concept that expresses the leader’s passion for nature and art
  • Jin’s Satellite is a dreamy space that expresses the moon and the orbit. It drew inspiration from one of Jin’s messages – “ARMY and we are looking at each other, and ARMY is everything to me.”
  • Suga’s Art Planet is a colorful neon-toned space that resembles the remarkable and multi-talented rapper-producer.
  • J-Hope’s Hope Planet is an industrial tone and manner space with the motif of J-hope’s free-spirited nature.
  • Jimin’s Aqua Planet is a dreamy space that embodies the vocalist’s crystal clear and pure image as water.
  • V’s Film Planet is a space with an analog mood created with V’s sensibility and his favorite film photos as the motif.
  • Jung Kook’s Prism Planet is a  space that represents Jungkook’s diverse musical talents as a multicolored rainbow prism.
