Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 16) — Local publisher Apop is bringing the Filipino edition of the much-anticipated memoir of Korean supergroup BTS to the country in July.

In partnership with BTS' agency BigHit Music, Apop announced "Beyond the Story: 10-Year Record of BTS" will be launching in the country on July 9 (the debut of the group's passionate fanbase ARMY) — simultaneous with its worldwide release.

Further information on pre-order will be announced in June, it added.

Apop is a publishing imprint based in the Philippines focused on translating Korean best sellers for the English-speaking market. It brought Korean literary works "I Decided to Live as Me" and "Being Comfortable Without Effort" to the country.

The New York Times announced last week that the book was written by members RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook and journalist Kang Myeongseok. It said the US edition will be 544 pages and it will feature exclusive photographs of the K-pop juggernaut.
