SEOUL, Oct. 22 (Yonhap) — A documentary depicting K-pop boy band BTS’s ascent to global fame will get a worldwide theatrical release on Nov. 15, its management agency said Monday.

The Walt Disney Company is in charge of Korean distribution. Ticket sales started on Monday across the world, except in South Korea and Japan, where the date for ticket sales to open has not been determined.
