Suga is “working hard” on his upcoming solo album.
The BTS rapper – who released his second mixtape ‘D-2’ in May 2020 – revealed that he is gearing up for his next project, noting that he wants to promote his work through “the same system regular groups do. when they promote and have a debut single and a B-side”.
He told Weverse Magazine, “Ah, what should I do? I’m hard at work on a follow-up to ‘D-2’.”
The star insisted he wanted to continue making music and not be tied to any specific genre.
He explained, “I also tried songs in different styles on ‘D-2’.
“I feel like I might not be able to become the master of a genre, but I can wear many hats… There’s still so much I want to do.
“I have no idea what kind of music I’m going to make in my 30s, 40s or 50s, but I want to keep making music until the day I die.”
The 29-year-old star’s comments come after he and his BTS bandmates confirmed they were on a “temporary hiatus”.
Suga – along with Septet Jin, 29, J-Hope, 28, RM, 27, V, 26, Jimin, 26, and Jungkook, 24 – broke the news of their hiatus to their armies of fans during their annual FESTA dinner which celebrated nine years of the hugely popular band.
RM said it was time for them to work on their own, adding, “I always thought BTS was different from other groups, but the problem with K-pop and the whole idol system is that they don’t. don’t give you time to mature. .
“You have to keep producing music and keep doing something.”
J-Hope said, “I think we should spend some time apart to learn how to be one again. I hope you don’t see this as a negative thing and see it as a healthy plan. I think BTS will become stronger this way.
V insisted they weren’t breaking up and vowed that “the group’s synergy will be like no other” when they reunite.
