At the Global Citizen Festival, BTS member Jungkook announced his next solo project. After a striking performance at the Golabl Cizen Festival 2023 in New York, the 'Seven' singer unveiled the first teaser of his upcoming project titled '3d'. Shortly afterwards, BIGHIT MUSIC officially announced that “3D” was a new solo digital single featuring Jack Harlow. In their English statement, the agency wrote, “Jungkook’s second solo single, ‘3D (featuring Jack Harlow),’ is a pop R&B track with clever expressions of feelings toward an unattainable person from the perspectives of first, second, and third dimensions. Get ready to meet an even more mature side of Jungkook following ‘Seven (featuring Latto).’” We were previously questioning what it was going to be exactly. Was it an album title or a single? Well, our questions have been answered.  BIGHIT MUSIC set the entertainment world abuzz with a captivating teaser on Twitter. This teaser, clocking in at just 30 seconds, offered a glimpse into what promises to be an unforgettable musical collaboration between Jack Harlow and the ever-fashionable Jungkook. The teaser commences with an electrifying surge of hip-hop beats, a signature hallmark of Jack Harlow's musical artistry. These beats not only set the stage for what's to come but also serve as a testament to the synergy between these two musical powerhouses. Jungkook, known for his multifaceted talents, makes a striking entrance in his most stylish avatar yet. The visuals are nothing short of breathtaking, as the South Korean sensation effortlessly combines fashion-forward elements with his innate charisma. The lyrics which can be heard, "I just wanna see you like that..I wanna see it in motion in 3D" sent fans into an absolute tizzy. We were promised Jungkook at his "most mature" and it sure seems like we're getting that. However, the true pièce de résistance arrives towards the end of the teaser: a mesmerizing game of chess between Jack Harlow and Jungkook. This unexpected twist adds a layer of intrigue to the upcoming release. Chess, a game of strategy and intellect, hints at a deeper narrative that the artists might be exploring in their music.  ARMYs took to Twitter to express their delight over this news: Lyrics of #JungKook_3D "I just wanna see you like thatSee you like thatSee you like that I wanna see itIn motionIn 3D" — BTS Charts Daily⁷ (@btschartsdailyx) September 27, 2023 THE WORLD IS NOT READY FOR “3D”3D IS COMING SEPTEMBER 29 #3DbyJungkook #JungKook_3D — DAILY_JK97ʲᵏ (@Daily_JK97) September 27, 2023 "I JUST WANNA SEE YOU LIKE THAT" JALQNSLSNSSKSJ LIKE WHAAAAT JEON JUNGKOOK?? — rayo³ᴰ (ia) (@taegisgod) September 27, 2023 Everything about 3D is a whole different from seven !!

BTS: Group members extend HYBE contracts amid Suga, Jin, and J-Hope's service

BTS has officially renewed its contracts with their agency, now known as Hybe Corporation. On September 20th, the seven members of BTS, namely RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, came together to solidify their commitment to the group's future endeavors. This collective renewal, as confirmed by South Korea's esteemed news agency, Yonhap, marks a significant milestone in the group's journey. Initially, the plan was to have each member sign exclusive contracts individually and sequentially. However, the decision to unify their commitment is a testament to their unwavering bond and shared vision. Notably, this renewal encompasses all members, even those currently fulfilling mandatory military service duties. Jin and J-Hope are diligently serving as assistant instructors, while SUGA embarked on his military journey in Seoul on the 22nd of September. Leader RM made the renewal announcement public on his Instagram account on the 20th, reinforcing his dedication to BTS's collective goals. This announcement carries profound implications not only for the group but also for HYBE Corporation. BTS is undeniably HYBE's most valuable intellectual property, and securing their commitment for the future is a substantial triumph. Speculation now abounds that the group will resume full-scale activities as a complete unit in 2025, once all members have completed their military service obligations. The journey of BTS began under the banner of Big Hit Entertainment, which subsequently evolved into HYBE Corporation. Their initial contract renewal took place in October 2018, but this recent development has ignited a renewed fervor among their passionate fanbase, ARMY. ARMY members are eagerly awaiting what the future holds, anticipating more groundbreaking music and accomplishments from the group that consistently reshapes the music industry's landscape. Despite members branching out into solo endeavors and fulfilling military service requirements, BTS has kept their fans engaged by continuously releasing new music and exploring their individual artistic paths. Most recently, Jungkook, one of BTS's shining stars, thrilled fans with the revelation of his upcoming solo digital single, "3D," featuring American singer Jack Harlow. This exciting news was unveiled during Jungkook's electrifying performance at the Global Citizen Festival and subsequently confirmed on the global fandom platform, Weverse. To add to the excitement, Jungkook has teased fans with 1D and 2D concept photos and teasers for his eagerly anticipated solo single, "3D."

BTS member Jungkook did a live chat with fans post his Global Citizen performance

BTS: Jungkook scolds ARMY for spoiling his surprise at Global Citizen Festival

BTS ARMYs were all excited to watch the band's youngest member rock the stage at the Global Citizen Festival in New York. What they were not prepared for was Jungkook's sudden announcement of a new single called 3D. The vocalist dropped the teaser of the single at the concert, as a surprise for ARMYs attending as well as fans across the world. However, a video from the Jungkook's rehearsal at the Global Citizen venue a day prior was leaked by some overzealous fans, potentially spoiling the surprise. After his performance at the Global Citizen Festival, Jungkook went live on Weverse to talk to his fans, and also scolded the person who leaked the video. In one segment of the live, the Seven hitmaker said, "I'm coming on for a bit to see you guys. You saw the video released, right? 3D featuring Jack Harlow. And today I had the Global Citizen stage... and I tossed out the idea of releasing the video after the performance and it really happened. He continued, "I threw out an idea, 'What if we release the video after the performance', so it happened like that. But it's a shame that yesterday I was rehearsing and someone filmed it and posted it. Who was it? You shouldn't do that. There's something called a surprise, huh?"           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by 김태형 taehyung⁷ 🐻 (@taetaebooo) BTS member Jin, who is currently serving in the South Korean military, also dropped by during Jungkook's live. The eldest member, who shares a special bond with the youngest, started by commenting on Weverse, asking JK to stop touching his hair.  230924 jin and jungkook on weverse ㅠㅠ, a thread; 🐹: Hey stop touching your hair🐰: Oh who's this "hey stop touching your hair”🐰: Oh jin! It’s jin yahh- jin, are you doing well ?🐰: jin are you doing well?🐹: Oh Jweke 🐰: Oh Jin!! 🐰: JJAN — ❦ (@seokjinniere2) September 24, 2023 They also chatted about military service, which Jungkook will be joining soon. Currently, Jin, JK and Suga, three members of BTS, are fulfilling their mandatory period. Jin complained that Jungkook doesn't text him enough, and the dongsaeng explained because he has been flying to different time zones for work lately. "I'm going back and forth across countries so it's hard with the time difference," JK said. Jin responded, "J-hope and I exchange like 300 messages every day.  Jungkook also asked him to watch his performance at Global Citizen, and complimented Jin on his ageless looks. "Hyung, I did my stage today, so please watch it... You're cool even in the military! You don't get old, you look even younger... You're going to get out (of the military) first so while we're gone please be active for our ARMYs, I'm working hard before I go too," he said.

The Moon movie review: Aiming for the Moon but landing well short of it

Film: The MoonCast: Sol Kyung-gu, Do Kyung-soo, Kim Hee-ae, Jo Han-chul, Amy AlehaDirector/Writer: Kim Yong-hwaRating: 2/5Runtime: 129 mins Kim Yong-hwa’s latest film, a sci-fi thriller, has South Korea joining the race to put a human astronaut on the Moon - to bring back samples with a view to establishing a future mining operation. The film in fact starts off positing a futuristic scenario wherein the second such South Korean mission is about to set off, after the first one failed following an explosion. The astronauts on board include highly trained Cho Yoon-jong and Lee San-won, along with relative newcomer Hwang Sun-woo (Do Kyung-soo better known as D.O. of the South Korean boy band EXO), the son of one of the engineers involved in designing that first rocket. Hwang Sun-woo’s father had apparently killed himself following the failure of the first mission.  Woori-ho, the spacecraft they are travelling in, encounters high solar winds caused by a coronal mass ejection from the sun, just as they are nearing their target. The craft experiences some difficulties as their communications systems and solar panels gets knocked out. Cho and Lee, while spacewalking to repair them, get caught in an explosion. The film tries hard to channel ‘Gravity’ here but it doesn’t even come close to that elevated experience.  So, Hwang is the only one alive, trapped in a damaged vessel which he cannot steer and which only has enough air left for five days. This movie follows the typical space disaster movie format and has the control centre trying to establish guidance communications in order to steer the lone astronaut out of a sticky life-threatening situation.  The efforts to rescue the endangered astronaut come a cropper as one thing after another goes wrong. The Space programme’s surviving engineer, Kim Jae-gook (Sol Kyung-gu), his ex-wife (Kim Hee-ae) who happens to work for NASA, and Han-byul (Hong Seung-hee), are the only ones able to help Hwang when everything else fails. The narrative is cliche-ridden and full of plot holes while the action and dialogue are pretty much cheesy.  ‘The Moon’ marks the first time that Kim Yong-Hwa has attempted such an ambitious set-up. The story is neither lean nor focused though. Sun-Woo’s survival and rescue mission forms a significant part of the plot but it’s not the sole focus. A backstory surrounding Kim Jae-Guk’s past, a bureaucratic subplot revolving around NASA and some hammy slap-stick also jostle for space in a narrative that prefers melodrama to subtlety and nuance. The science is questionable and the thrills are obligatory. The narrative ends up being way too long with too many twists and turns - thus making it rather impossible to believe in. The amplified emotions and obligatory tear-jerking moments make you feel like you are in a TV drama. Director/Writer Kim tries to do way too much with the story and narrative.  Political issues, both national and international are also segued into the storyline in order to give the film a broader appeal. But it doesn’t work out as planned. The special effects are inconsistent but there are times when it feels entirely credible too. The meant-to-be-thrilling set pieces showcasing Sun-Woo facing various dangers don’t work up much thrill.  The absurd action sequences make the filmed experience very much iffy. Hwang’s moon landing, and his attempts to avoid the path of a meteor shower, while outracing exploding space rocks are rather over-the-top. The audience doesn’t get to see much of the Moon either. The visuals and effects go from excellent to pedestrian in no time. The story borrows ideas from major Hollywood space disaster/survival thrillers. Even so, the scatter-shot plotting, sluggish pacing, and uneven VFX make this film a below-par experience.

BTS: Jungkook admits to being tired at Incheon airport, ARMYs concerned

Jungkook, the beloved member of BTS, has consistently demonstrated his dedication to both his craft and his fans. On September 21 (KST), as he geared up for his performance at the Global Citizen Festival, Jungkook's unrelenting commitment to his supporters was on full display at Incheon Airport. Despite his jam-packed schedule that has seen him jetting off for overseas commitments with remarkable frequency, Jungkook arrived at the airport with that signature blend of charisma and fatigue. It was evident that he had either just rolled out of bed or was grappling with the exhaustion that accompanies a demanding itinerary. Nevertheless, the ever-gracious idol made a point to acknowledge the media and his adoring fans. Upon a reporter asking him if he's tired, Jungkook politely nodded 'yes'. As he stepped out of his vehicle, Jungkook, with bleary eyes that spoke volumes about his hectic routine, greeted the eager crowd that had gathered to catch a glimpse of their beloved star. The flashing cameras and clamor of fans did little to deter Jungkook from his mission to connect with those who admire him. When a reporter inquired about his weariness, the idol silently nodded, perhaps hinting at the toll his relentless schedule had taken on him. Navigating his way through the airport, Jungkook remained a paragon of politeness. He continued to wave, offer greetings, and, of course, bowed to express his gratitude to those surrounding him. It was a heartfelt acknowledgment of the unwavering support he receives from his global fanbase. ARMYs took to Twitter to express their concern over Jungkook's clear fatigue: I really hope Jungkook can rest and sleep enough on this flight. He has been working so hard, having multiple flights in such a short time, he is doing a lot for all of us.. he deserves so much love seriously. — 나비.97 (FAN) (@maineventjeon) September 21, 2023 My baby looks so sleepy and tired 😭😭😭HAVE A SAFE FLIGHT JUNGKOOK#JungKookOnGlobalCitizen — JK TikTok Updates  (@JKOnTikTok) September 21, 2023 Till the last minute he will be sure to thank and bow to fansThat’s Jungkook’s thing despite him being sleepy or tired it’s just his nature HAVE A SAFE FLIGHT JUNGKOOK — ミ ♡ ミ (@ayjk97) September 21, 2023 even if Jungkook was sleepy and tired, he kept cheering and bowing for the support being given.. be has the greatest heart I've ever seen.
