On Friday, the BTS member released his debut solo album 'Golden'
Jungkook has big plans for his solo career.
“Of course I want to do a world tour as a solo artist, but I don’t think I have enough songs for that,” Jungkook, 26, told the host. “So I want to complement them more and make more songs. And maybe when I’m ready, I can do the tour in full swing.”
His debut album Golden dropped on Friday and he hopes that it represents a "universal emotion [of] love."
"Everyone can relate to it,” he said of the album. “I wanted to show the change of this emotion. And also in terms of the versatility. I wanted to become a solo artist who can pull off a lot of genres and that’s what I try to do here.”
The album is set to debut at No. 3 in the U.K., which would mark the highest charting solo release from a BTS member, per Billboard.
Elsewhere in the interview, he also opened up about his nickname "Golden Maknae" aka "Golden Youngest" of BTS, what his off-days look like (lots of cooking and laying in bed) and his proudest achievements (ARMY and BTS).
“If it weren’t for them I would not be what I am today," he said of the BTS fanbase.
Jungkook performed his single "Seven," his first official solo release; as well as "Euphoria," a fan-favorite Jungkook track off the group's 2018's album Love Yourself: Answer; and BTS's 2020 smash hit "Dynamite."
In an interview with GMA’s Juju Chang that was moved indoors to the show's Times Square studio, Jungkook shared that his fellow BTS members — RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin and V — had heard his new music and gave it a glowing review. "They loved it," he said. The members have already been sharing messages of support for the single on their Instagram accounts.
The group announced last June that they would be pursuing solo projects while continuing some group activities as the members fulfill South Korea's mandatory military service. Jin, j-hope and SUGA are currently enlisted.
