Boy band BTS’s Monochrome pop-up event landed at the Siam Paragon shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday. The event will run through June 23.

The event succeeds the Monochrome pop-up that opened in Seongu-dong, eastern Seoul, on April 26.

The Bangkok version also consists of a photo exhibition of the members’ portraits in black and white, art installations under the monochrome theme, and a space where visitors can take photos and buy merchandise, according to its co-organizer Innocean on Friday.

The exhibition will showcase large prints of the black-and-white photo shoot the seven members partook in before beginning their military service.

The store is designed with sets reminiscent of a logistics center, including conveyor belts, which add to the concept of BTS “delivering” shared memories to ARMY. Merchandise such as storage boxes and rolls of tape add to the ambiance.
