Fun fact: If you’re one of the zillion fans of the K-pop boy band BTS, you’ll soon be able to snag your very own pint-sized version of your favourite singer in the septet.
In anticipation of the release of Bring the Soul: The Movie, a documentary film about the South Korean boy band, BTS’ official Mattel dolls will be available at Toys”R”Us locations across Canada this weekend.
The toy retailer will be carrying dolls of all seven artists, which includes V, SUGA, Jin, Jung Kook, RM, Jimin, and j-hope. Each member is sporting their own signature style and wearing the suit they wore in the group’s “IDOL” music video.
“We’re excited to offer our consumers this wonderful piece of contemporary South Korean pop culture and entertainment,” says Melanie Teed-Murch, president at Toys”R”Us Canada.
