On March 3rd on YouTube BANGTAN TV, a new clip on was uploaded. 

Voomvoom finally found it out for you guys!

 
The clip is entitled [BANGTAN BOMB] Standing in front of the window - BTS. The content has gained 1.44 million views in just 4 days. 
 
This is absolutely an amazing number for a video that contains the members just standing in front of windows and admiring a view. Fans have been curious as to the venue where the boy band was in as the video gained more and more attention.
 
When and where BTS filmed this and why were they there?
 
VoomVoom found out that the place where the 7 members shot the video is Shangri-La Hotel At The Shard London, normally called The Shard for short. The K-Pop stars visited the U.K. for their concert at The O2 Arena, London on October 9-10 last year. Right after the concert, which was the 11th, they had an interview with Dan Wootton, a host of a British show called Lorraine in the hotel.
