But others pointed to the hashtags Jungkook used, suggesting that he might release a photofolio, a combination of “photo” and “portfolio,” meaning it is a collection of a photographer’s best work.
a photofolio usually means a photo portfolio that showcases an artist’s best/representative work so this might mean that we’ll get a whole collection of photos and edits by jungkook 😭

The latter was correct! On the 12th, BTS’s official Instagram account revealed an additional teaser for Jungkook’s next creative project.
The caption on all three photos referred to it as a “Mood ‘Day’ Teaser, but it appears that the name of the overall project is “Me, Myself, and Jung Kook.”
Reportedly, Jungkook participated in the entirety of the work for the pictorial. So, he worked on it all the way from the planning stages to the concept, fashion, props, etc.
Jungkook’s pictorial will be released on his birthday, September 1, as most of his solo creative projects, are released. Ahead of the release, mood teasers, concept films, preview images, etc., will be released one after another, so we have a lot to look forward to!
