BTS‘s J-Hope is showing his dark side for his highly-anticipated solo album Jack In The Box.
Recently, he took to Instagram to post some concept photos for the album, but with the announcement of his first single “MORE,” he’s taken a completely different direction!
The eerie photo shows a silhouette of J-Hope sporting the same jester look as his previous photos, but this time, he’s shrouded in darkness. Standing with his tipped and the angle of the photo tilted, it gives off a much darker vibe than any of his previous releases.
Additionally, he share more photos capturing the dark atmosphere on Instagram.
Telling Weverse Magazine that he’s presenting a new side of himself, fans are already excited to see what he has in store!
As you know, I often present myself with a sunny demeanor. So I have a strong desire to display a different side of me. I personally challenged myself to do that in my current projects. I wanted to show an extremely dark, raw side.
He shared that his reasoning for the change is to branch out as an artist and widen the spectrum of music he creates. Fans can look forward to music that is “intense, but at the same time, mature,” according to J-Hope himself.
Additionally, he released a schedule fans can mark their calendars for: The remaining concept photos for “MORE” will be released June 28th and 29th at 12AM KST and the actual song will be released July 1st at 1PM KST.
