Mr Worldwide Handsome Jin, a member of the hit boy band BTS, will release his first official solo single next week, following this week’s announcement that he will soon start military duty.

The song, titled ‘The Astronaut’, will be released on October 28th at 4pm, with pre-orders to begin later next Wednesday.

Bighit Music says

it is a song made with so much love toward the fans, and hope ‘The Astronaut’ can be a gift to all of them.

The announcement came after band’s management group HYBE, says Jin will cancel a request to further delay his enlistment in late October.

The other younger band members also plan to serve their compulsory service.
