“I Really Missed Being In The Group”: BTS’ Jung Kook Looks Forward To The Reunion In 2025 After The Military Service

The Army is already missing the boys! In 2022, Big Hit Music announced that BTS would go on a hiatus until 2025 as the boys would be posted for military service, which is a rule in South Korea. The last time that all the members performed together was at the World Expo 2030 in Busan. After that, some of the members, like Suga and Jung Kook, went on to have solo endeavors.

Jung Kook has recently released his debut solo album titled ‘Golden’ on November 3, 2023. The album has already created history as it became the highest-selling K-Pop act in Billboard 200 history. He released two singles from his album, ‘Seven’ and ‘3D’, featuring Latto and Jack Harlow, respectively. During an interview with Zane Lowe, Jung Kook talked about the much-awaited reunion with the boys.

Since 2013, the K-pop boy band, BTS, has been active. But the band only got global recognition and love in 2016 when they released ‘Blood, Tears & Sweat’. They have been recognized on global platforms like the Grammys. However, in 2022, it was announced that they would be going on a hiatus following military service.

Some of the artists, like Jin, have already gone on to serve their tenure in the military. Suga, after the release of his solo debut album, ‘D-Day’, also began his service on September 22, 2023. While the boys are beginning their service, Jung Kook, the youngest of them, has been missing them.

During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Jung Kook confessed that he missed everyone while working on his solo album. “Preparing as a solo artist and also working as a solo musician…there were times where I missed [being in the group],” the singer said.

He added, “You know, I miss them. And I was thinking about them. So I suppose that year could seem far away, but I don’t want to think that way. I think the synergy of BTS in 2025 will be incredible. I am so looking forward to it.”
