Just overall bad timing. While general men’s military enlistment time is proposed to be 24 months again instead of 18 mos, article like this came out. Also overall this president is gaining bad rep all around.
Anyways it’s up to their country😁 their country, their rules.
I deffo think 4 o’clock deserves a shoutout for how brilliant the song is tho! His songs do have similar vibe but that’s just his flair as a composer. He def has explored different sounds these past few years (travel with me? is quite different too but he deleted that one lol).
We have at least four members that are working on personal music / mixtapes rn according to VLIVEs (RM—dont forget the personal recording he did in legendary studio @ LA; J-Hope ofc, probably the nearest to release; Taehyung; Jungkook). The most possible to be released this yr: hobi and tae maybe? But so far they have talked a LOT abt their personal music, and worked so much on it.
Group album probably around festa (May-July range). Full album. Concert tours in between, sporadic dates like Vegas and Seoul bc rona still hasnt died down yet with new variants spotted everywhere.
Get well soon Rosie!!
I agree with the part that the album will probably come out in the second half of the year. There are hints everywhere that multiple members are working on mixtapes (at least RM and J-Hope)! And this extended break (or at least, not a heavy schedule) allows them to work on their mixtapes.
Members are humans and they need break. They have been so restless during the past 8 years, let them be. I pretty much dc as long as I get new music, and we just got Stay Alive
I'm curious to see how he does against V. I think this could be a good measuring stick to see who has the more powerful Korean fandom. V has been holding steady at around 20-25 on Melon. Will JK match this? Beat if?
V has GPs to back him up. Some OBS OSTs are still ranking on various domestic music platforms. The drama which has his OST ranked #1 on Netflix Korea (even though it had poor TV ratings, but most youngsters watched things on OTT these days and Our Beloved Summer caters to young generation).
If anything, if we compare debut day performance, JK’s OST slightly fares better (which to me signifies a sliiiightly bit stronger core fandom but who knows lol), but I doubt it will be able to match Christmas Tree’s longevity bc JK OST doesnt have GP.

the song snippet is absolutely PERFECTION
the rumor started from that sejong channel V mentioned in his weverse, it actually had around 500k views before her side explained, and I already saw hundreds of comments harassing her from troll accs on instagram (i guess she knew bc she turned off the next post’s comments). I get why she was giving a statement but I still don’t think mentioning Yoongi is a good move lol.
Anyway the rumors started from DC gallery and let’s see what the vile dc ppl are going to do with this statement… they were SO sure of this.
All I know is that they definitely aren't on a vacation so I wonder what are they so busy with?
They even had a shorter stay during in the soop this year (4 days vs 1 week last year) due to their mysterious schedule
In the soop was filmed during Butter/PTD promo (after 30 July, after JK VLIVE). So probably sandwiched between promos.
Most of the things I said are not speculation, though? You may retort to Taehyung’s weverse post just this morning. Also the latest Run BTS where they said it was their own decision to pause Run.
I'm pretty sure thats why some fans are angry. Instead of posting free content (thats a part of their tradition before), Bighit decided to selling things instead. I honestly can understand why some fans (esp the old one) got "mad", one of BTS strong point before were how much free content they used to put out. But now one by one everything got even more commercialized. They jack up the album price (BE), they released an album with only 2 songs in it, etc.
To be frank we have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes. These fans were mad that there’s no halloween content but we saw Taehyung posting on weverse that he basically didnt care about halloween (and probably is too busy practicing for the offline con in 27 Nov; that’s where BTS priorities lie: music and performances).
I for one also dislike the way BE album rolls out but it is also possible that it is BTS decision to NOT release an album this year, due to: pending tours, still cannot actively promote. Also making an album is not an easy process, BTS will probably have intense involvement on the next album and they are taking time with their craft. It’s okay with that. Also bighit trying to make the most of that situation by releasing a butter CD is not a peculiar move, some people release CD albums, it’s not new.
Also, didnt we forget that it is BTS decision to pause Run? idk maybe they’re really busy and next year is focused on TOURING, their main purpose in being BTS, really? Some of these kfans are entitled as fuck.
