The K-pop idol also shared a cinematic trailer, a first for his forthcoming track. The video opens with an astronaut leaving a huge futuristic space station, floating high above the earth. From there, he moves towards an alien light source, and also witnesses a meteor shower, past moons and planets, satellites and asteroids on his way. As the video ends, a light entirely encompasses him before the logo of the song appears on the screen.

The official solo single will be released as a physical single album with two versions.

Ever since the news broke on the internet, fans have flooded social media to praise the Epiphany singer and congratulate him on his latest project. In addition to this, he is receiving praise for his creativity and promoting his work in the most unique ways.

Jin, who previously entertained fans with solo hits like Moon, Epiphany, Abyss, and Yours, is ready to bless the fans with his euphonious voice. He also debuted in BIGHIT's discography as a solo artist.

The news came on the heels of BTS' military service announcement. The K-pop group will be fulfilling mandatory military service for at least 18 months, starting with Jin.

The agency announced,

“Jin will initiate the process as soon as his schedule for his solo release is concluded at the end of October, he will then follow the enlistment procedure of the Korean government. Other members of the group plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.”

All members of the group will be enlisting. BTS plans to reconvene as a group in 2025 after the end of their mandatory military service.
