BTS’ V Confirms New Single

On Sunday (3.03,) K-pop superstar V officially announced through social media that his soon-to-be song “FRI(END)S,” will drop on March 15 at 1 p.m. KST.

According to the BTS-members press release from Big Hit Music “The track, rooted in the pop soul R&B genre, delivers relatable and witty romance through lyrics written entirely in English.”“The single artwork accompanying the announcement reveals the song title and release date against a vivid pink background that hints at the song’s sweet mood.”

Along with a brief clip featuring the K-pop star, on Saturday (3.02), BTS’ official Instagram account teased “FRI(END)S” that follows V’s 2023 solo debut, Layover, which included tracks ‘Love Me Again,” “Rainy Days” and “Slow Dancing.”

Following the September 2023 release of his six-track Layover EP, V prepped for his mandatory military service in South Korea, which will keep the K-pop supergroup on hiatus until 2025.

Written in Korean, V wrote at the time “I will miss you so much.” “Actually, I’m really sad that I can’t make happy memories with my ARMY for the time being […] it’s the hardest not to see the ARMY. I’II be back after 18 months of being healthy, so take care of your ARMY and if you’re looking for something to be happy about every day, cheers! I’m here! I’ll be back!” “Within 18 months, I’ve prepared a lot of things. Please look forward do it,” the 28-year-old singer added, before concluding, “I’ll really miss you. I love you so much.”

In December, Big Hit confirmed that BTS’ final four band members RM, Jimin, V and Jung Kook are beginning their military enlistment process, following Jin, J-Hope and Suga, who have already enlisted.
