BTS bandmember Jungkook has made two of his solo songs more broadly available on streaming services.
‘Still With You’ and ‘My You’ were released in 2020 and 2022, respectively, as part of BTS’ annual Festa celebrations. The tracks, which were only available on SoundCloud or YouTube, are now available on streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music.
Additionally, the songs have been added to South Korean streaming platforms including VIBE, FLO and Genie.
The singer has already released other solo songs, including ‘Dreamers’ for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and ‘Stay Alive’ for the 7Fates: CHAKHO soundtrack.
Most of BTS’ have released solo music while the group has been on hiatus to enable each member to complete their compulsory military duty, as all able-bodied South Korean men must before the age of 35.
J-hope, Jin and RM all released solo music in 2022, as has Jimin, who landed the highest UK chart appearance by a BTS member earlier this year with ‘Like Crazy’. V has also reportedly been working on solo music.
Meanwhile, Suga released his debut album under his Agust D alias, ‘D-Day’, in April, which was accompanied by a Disney+ documentary, Suga: Road To D-Day. He is currently in the middle of a world tour, the first member of the K-pop group to embark on a solo run of shows.
The group briefly came back together for ‘The Planet’, which was used in the opening titles for new South Korean animated series Bastions. They are expected to reconvene in 2025.
The book, which BTS co-wrote with journalist Myeongseok Kang, arrives on 9 July in celebration of the band’s 10th anniversary. The July date also marks the day (aka ARMY day) that the fandom name ARMY was confirmed.
