BTS’ V Surprises Fans With ‘Type 1’ Music Announcement

V is back!

The BTS superstar surprised fans on Tuesday (June 25) by announcing a new musical project called TYPE 1, though it’s not immediately clear if the announcement is for a song or an album. The new release is set to arrive on July 9.

The announcement, shared to social media, also included a steamy cover photo which features a shirtless V leaning against a wall, with his hand grabbing the waistband of his pants. “I still wonder wonder beautiful story/ Still wonder wonder best part/ I still wonder wonder next story/ I want to make you mine,” the text on the photo reads in white script.

Back in March, V dropped his first post-military enlistment single, “FRI(END)S,” which was written entirely in English. The song followed his September 2023 EP Layover, which the K-pop star dropped just a couple months before beginning his mandatory service in the South Korean military alongside bandmates RM, Jimin, Jung Kook, Jin, J-Hope and Suga, who have also enlisted.

previously confirmed that he had banked a few projects to release during his time away, writing in a December statement that he’d “prepared a lot of things” for the 18-month period. “I will miss you so much,” he penned at the time, as translated to English. “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.”

As a soloist, V has notched four songs on the Billboard Hot 100 — including “FRI(END)S.” He reached his highest peak to date in 2023 with “Slow Dancing,” which debuted at No. 51 on the chart.
