K-pop fans camp overnight in chilly temperatures for BTS show in Paris

Devotees of K-pop band BTS (Bangtan Boys or Bulletproof Boy Scouts) braved chilly temperatures on the streets of Paris to queue for the superstar band's show tonight.

Footage filmed last night (October 18) outside the Accor Hotel Arena in Bercy shows fans wrapping up warm as they mill around the makeshift campsite in the French capital's 12th Arrondissement.

Despite the show kicking off at 8 pm tonight and again on Saturday at the same time, fans are seen queueing up to enter the arena.

BTS, from South Korea, has seen a meteoric rise in the past few years and the group of seven is now considered one of the biggest boy bands on the planet.

Last year, they held a 40-show tour around Europe and knocked Justin Bieber off the top spot in the hearts of western fans.

Their latest album, "Love Yourself : Answer", released on August 24, has already rocketed to the top of the charts.
