BTS’s Jungkook Shares New Details About His “JJK1” Mixtape

Here’s what he has envisioned for its release.

For years, BTS fans have been patiently waiting for Jungkook‘s first mixtape, nicknamed JJK1. Now, he’s sharing new details about it.

While discussing his songwriting process and solo work in a “BE-hind Story” interview, Jungkook explained why he takes so long to complete projects.

I like to work focused, and if I don’t like the song I also don’t feel like showing it to other people, so it takes me a long time to work on a project. I spend lots of time repeating the process of writing and deleting. [. . .]

If the track is fixed, then I could ask for feedback in the process, but if I’m working when nothing is fixed I think about it after I complete the work.

Later in the interview, Jungkook revealed what he has envisioned for a mixtape. He likes the idea of having three main tracks that are all very different from each other.

I want to release a mixtape like this. There are three main tracks in total, and they all have music videos of their own, and they each have their own choreography, but in different styles.

— Jungkook

Interviewer J-Hope encouraged Jungkook to experiment with his work and learn how to improve it from each release.

Go for it! You should try everything you want. At this point, I think it’s good to try different things and show various aspects. I’ve told [V] about this too, but you need to come up with something first to know what my shortcomings are, and it’s also important to realize, ‘Oh, this doesn’t work for me.’

So you need to release it first in order to see all the reactions and see how people think about your work to improve to the level.

— J-Hope

“I’m planning on doing that,” Jungkook replied.
