The flashy lights and camera angles make them appear as if they are in a completely different world. However, despite the glamor of their lives, idols always seem to remain humble and thankful for the endless support.
As a thanks for their fans’ love, idol groups even release films that play across theaters and streaming sites everywhere. These films include concert performances, behind the scenes footage, and sincere interviews weaved in between. In the end, they become a special and unforgettable gift to fans across the globe.
