Get ready for some Korean pop: ‘BTS: The Movie’

Fans of Korean pop music should appreciate a movie that's being added to Friday's already crowded list of openings.

"Bring the Soul: The Movie" (at select theaters): Not the first, nor even the second, but this is the third film documentary film focusing on the Korean boy band BTS, this one focusing on the group's "Love Yourself World Tour." Wonder if Kim Jong-un knows about these guys?

And at 7 p.m. on Monday, a "special fan event":

"Blinded by the Light" (at select theaters): A preview screening of director Gurinder Chadha's film set in 1987 about a British-Pakistani teen and how his love for the music of Bruce Springsteen puts him at odds with his Muslim family. Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.

I'll update as needed.
