AceShowbiz - Jungkook has been missing his BTS (Bangtan Boys) bandmates. The South Korean sensation, who just released his debut solo album, declared that he looks forward to reuniting with the group band in 2025.
"Preparing as a solo artist and also working as a solo musician… there were times where I really missed [being in the group]," the 26-year-old admitted when speaking to Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "When I was in the waiting room or standing by myself on stage or eating with the staff. We were always together for so many years that I felt the void of them not being next to me."
"You know, I miss them," he continued. "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."
Jungkook also opened up about being the youngest member of the group. "I think there certainly was a special privilege for being the youngest [member] and I had a lot of help in ways that I may or may not know," he said. "And the members are such nice people. I think I took a lot of great things from them. I got so much help from all six of them, it allowed me to grow to where I am today."
Jungkook dropped his debut solo album, "Golden", on November 3. The project boasts 11 tracks in total, including "Standing Next to You", "Seven" ft. Latto (previously Mulatto), "3D" ft. Jack Harlow, "Closer to You" ft. Major Lazer and "Please Don't Change" ft. DJ Snake among others.
According to a press release, Jungkook "expresses the flow of emotions that follow the changes in relationships" through the order of the tracks. The message continued to read, "The first half of the album introduces songs with light-hearted melodies portraying someone falling in love, whereas the latter half lays out songs that feel heavier, dealing with emotions following a breakup."
