On the 8th, Hive label Big Hit Music announced that “BTS member Jungkook, a member of the ‘global pop star’ group, stole the world with his ‘perfect performance’.”
Jungkook posted a performance music video for “Standing Next to You,” the title track of his solo album “GOLDEN,” on BTS’s official SNS at 0:00 a.m. KST on the 8th. The video features Jungkook’s overwhelming performance against the backdrop of a tunnel and an old-fashioned theatre.
Making a casual appearance with a hand microphone, Jungkook dominated the atmosphere in a white T-shirt and black jeans while performing his military dance in perfect sync with the dancers.
The introductory choreography utilising a stand microphone is a standout, and Jungkook fills the video with his unique aura during his solo performance. The sophisticated choreography set to a retro soundtrack and Jungkook’s laid-back vibe made the video a pleasure to watch, as the locations and costumes changed with the beat.
The military dance in the old-fashioned theatre is a particular highlight. The sensuous camera movements and golden lighting enhance Jungkook’s performance, while the explosive energy of the concert is transmitted through the screen.
Meanwhile, Jungkook released his solo album ‘GOLDEN’ on the 3rd.
