For BTS's Jimin, music transcends language barriers

South Korean singer releases solo album that peers deep into his soul

"Music lets us relate to other people at any time, under any circumstance, and reminds us of who we were in those moments. That's the biggest power music has," BTS member Jimin said in a recent written interview with Nikkei.   © BIGHIT MUSIC

TOKYO -- BTS member Jimin will release his debut solo album "Face" on Friday, marking a milestone since the sensational South Korean boy band decided to concentrate on their solo projects and the oldest member, Jin, was conscripted into the military last December.

In a recent written interview with Nikkei, Jimin divulged the creative muses that went into his new album. He also talks about how music is powerful enough to transcend national borders and languages, and lays out how BTS aims to stage a comeback in 2025.
