Ever since Jungkook's solo debut single "Seven" achieved global chart-topping success, fans have eagerly awaited news of a full-fledged album.
BTS's Jungkook, set to co-headline the 2023 Global Citizen Festival in New York City on September 23, has been keeping his devoted fanbase, known as ARMY, in a state of excitement and anticipation. With the iconic performance on the horizon, fans are abuzz with speculations about a potential spoiler dropped during Jungkook's rehearsals, hinting at his forthcoming solo album.
Ever since Jungkook's solo debut single "Seven" achieved global chart-topping success, fans have eagerly awaited news of a full-fledged album from the talented artist. In a recent interview on Suchwita, Jungkook expressed his desire to release more solo music, fueling expectations of a possible album drop by November.
Although Jungkook refrained from providing a specific timeline, fans have been scrutinizing various videos circulating on social media platforms for clues. The intrigue began with a video capturing Jungkook enjoying dinner with HYBE's chairman, Bang Si Hyuk, and members of TOMORROW X TOGETHER (TXT), BTS's junior group, following the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.
In Bang's video, recorded during a celebration of TXT member Yeonjun's birthday, the camera focused on Jungkook, who cheekily gestured by raising three fingers with a mischievous grin. This playful moment triggered ARMYs' speculations, and their excitement intensified as they observed Jungkook's rehearsal for the Global Citizen Festival.
During the rehearsal held in Central Park, where some fortunate fans were in attendance, Jungkook surprised everyone by practising unexpected tracks like "Permission to Dance" and "Still With You." Additionally, on the backdrop screens, video clips (VCRs) were displayed, including a teaser-like video showcasing Jungkook in a fresh and intriguing appearance, concluding with the prominent text "3D."
As the pieces of the puzzle align, ARMYs are growing increasingly convinced that this VCR serves as a comeback announcement for Jungkook as a soloist. They believe that Jungkook's playful "three" gesture from Bang's video and his creative use of a 3-D glitch effect in his TikToks were all subtle hints. However, there remains a lingering uncertainty about whether this revelation heralds another single or the eagerly awaited debut album.
The moment of truth is almost upon us, with less than 24 hours until the grand unveiling!
