Again, BIGHIT MUSIC reiterated that BTS is technically not taking a hiatus as a group with Korean, English, and Japanese statements. There originally had been misunderstandings due to mistranslations in a live broadcast.



We would like to announce the release of ‘Jack In The Box,’ j-hope’s solo album. BTS has turned the page on their new chapter, throughout which the members will harmoniously carry out their group and individual activities. j-hope will be the first member of BTS to start this new journey and release his solo album.

j-hope’s solo album, as expressed in the title of the album ‘Jack In The Box,’ represents his aspirations to break the mold and grow further.

Starting with his pre-released track to be released on July 1st, diverse content to show j-hope’s creative identity as an artist will be introduced. Please stay tuned and we will continue to provide you with more details on the album.

We hope that you look forward to ‘Jack In The Box’ and send j-hope your love and support as he takes his first step as a solo artist.

Based on the description, it is not technically a physical album. Although, it appears that it will come with photocards!

Initially, some fans were a bit confused as it’s unlike the usual BTS album sales through Weverse.

But it’ll essentially be just a package with QR code and photocards. So, the album will consist of exactly a Card Holder (1 of 2), Photocard A (1 type), Photocard B (1 of 2), and QR card (User guide).

J-Hope’s new solo album will be released ahead of his headlining at the Chicago music festival 2022 Lollapalooza. So, ARMYs can expect him to perform new songs in his set.
