This review of the movie contains the following information:
In this documentary-style film, viewers get a behind-the-scenes look at the young men who make up the hugely popular Korean boy band 'BTS'. Band members :RM; Jin; Suga; J-Hope; Jimin; V; and Jungkook all talk candidly about what it is like to tour the world and the impact that their journey has had on each of them as individuals. Audiences are shown parts of the Love Yourself World Tour that took the world by storm, and members of the group reflect on their devotion to their fans, their dedication to their craft and the toll this has taken on them personally. They discuss what they have lost and what they have gained and how, despite all the ups and downs, they have grown and evolved into a phenomenon that none of them expected and how they hope to use their talents to inspire others and bring comforting messages to the world.

Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
