Since BTS' hiatus from group activities in 2022, its members have been busy releasing new songs and albums and shattering multiple records. Jungkook's recent single Seven dropped on July 14, 2023, and took the fandom by surprise.

The track gained traction online and soon after, V kept the momentum going with the first song from his solo album.

As V was the only remaining member to release a solo track since the hiatus, news of his album left fans ecstatic. The star-studded group's company, BigHit Entertainment, officially shared the news of the album's arrival on August 8, 2023, without releasing any prior schedule. On August 9, V launched the first of his five promised music videos.


A few days ago, Jungkook set a record by achieving 1 million views on YouTube within just seven minutes. He became the fastest K-pop male soloist to achieve this feat, which is now shared by both Jungkook and V.

V's track also made history by becoming the fastest song in the music industry by a male artist to reach 2 million views on YouTube in 2023.

As the news came to light, fans connected it to the number seven, which is both the record-breaking time the tracks took to achieve this milestone and the number of members in BTS.

After the tie between V and Jungkook, fans began demanding a possible Taekook sub-unit. Fans took to Twitter as they celebrated the unique feat of their favorite artists.

The music video of V's Love Me Again from his album Layover saw him in golden and red shimmering sequined outfits as he sang about the desire to love a past lover again. Through the song, Kim Taehyung demonstrated his exceptionally unique voice and left fans wanting more.
