‘Seven’ will be the long-awaited official solo debut of Jungkook. However, the BTS member has released a number of solo songs over the years, including ‘Dreamers’ for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, ‘My You’ for BTS’ 2022 Festa celebrations and ‘Stay Alive’ for the 7Fates: CHAKHO soundtrack.
The singer also previously became the new global ambassador for fashion brand Calvin Klein. The singer has since starred in a campaign for the brand’s Spring 2023 collection.
Earlier this month, BTS released the song ‘Take Two’. The track, which features all seven members of the boyband, is their first new music release since contributing the song ‘The Planet’ to the soundtrack of the South Korean animated series Bastions.
Next month, BTS are also set to release Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS, a book which the members co-wrote with journalist Myeongseok Kang. The group have since released a trailer for the book.
