The HYBE artist also revealed he has nearly completed his anticipated solo album, which would make him the next member to release one following J-Hope’s “Jack In The Box” this past July. Following the release of their massive anthology album “Proof” in June, the septet announced a temporary group break to prioritize solo activities.
