The singer of the South Korean band BTS, Jungkook, will release his first solo album on November 3rd. The album will be called Golden in English, a reference to one of the nicknames by which fans refer to Jungkook, the Korean term Maknae for the youngest member of a golden music group, and will feature 11 songs, as reported today in a statement by the BigHit music label.
According to the agency, Golden is trying to highlight the golden moments of 26-year-old Jungkook, whose real name is Jeon Jung-kook, as an artist and unconditionally reveal his true identity. Jungkook already made his solo debut last July with the single Seven, which achieved great success in the charts in several countries, and last Friday, September 29, he released his second song as a soloist, 3D.
The youngest member of the famous South Korean band has taken advantage of the rest period that BTS is currently in and who announced last year that he has decided to take a break, which will last at least until 2025, to release his first works outside the cluster.
The seven members of the band wanted to use this time to complete the compulsory military service in South Korea for able-bodied men and to focus on personal projects. On September 22, Suga, along with Jin and J-Hope, became the third member of the group to start the mandatory performance.
In his case, Suga will work as a social worker for at least 18 months after he was discharged from military service, apparently due to a shoulder injury that had already forced him to have an operation in 2020.
