The South Korean release of a new film about K-pop superstars BTS has been indefinitely delayed, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The documentary film Break The Silence: The Movie had been scheduled for a Sept 10 release in South Korean theatres.

While it will not go ahead on that date in South Korea, Break The Silence: The Movie will be released in Malaysia on Sept 10 as planned.

The film is the fourth theatrical film release featuring the band. It follows the group during the 2019 Love Yourself: Speak Yourself world tour in the United States, Europe and Asia.

At the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (Aug 30), BTS performed its English single Dynamite .

At the awards ceremony, BTS was named Best Group. For its music video On, it received Best Pop, Best K-pop and Best Choreography awards.

BTS's latest single arrived six months after the release of the group's fourth studio album, Map Of The Soul: 7, which dropped in February.

The Dynamite music video became an instant record-holder for highest number of YouTube viewers for a video premiere.

On Aug 23, it also set a new YouTube record for views in the first 24 hours of release and topped 100 million views in that time period, beating the prior record holder, Blackpink's How You Like That. – Reuters
