Jin’s Solo Song, The Astronaut, Gets Release Date
The Astronaut is all set to release on October 28 at 1 pm KST, with an official full-length music video. The first teaser video of the track features a lone astronaut traveling through space. The complete promotional schedule for the song has also been announced. On Thursday morning, a poster will be launched, with concept pictures coming out on October 23 and 24.
A teaser for the music video will be launched on October 26, followed by the official release on Friday, October 28.

“Since it’s a song made with so much love toward the fans, we hope “The Astronaut” can be a gift to all of you.

Jin Announced the Track on October 15
With ‘The Astronaut’, Jin is following in the footsteps of J-Hope, who released his solo album, Jack In The Box, in July this year. Announcing the track during BTS’s Busan World Expo 2030 concert, Jin said, “Lastly, I have something to tell you…I’ve ended up becoming the second [BTS member] after J-Hope to release my own album.”
“It’s not a huge album or anything, it’s just a single. I was able to work together with someone that I’d always really liked, so I’ll be releasing a new song. I’ve filmed a lot different things recently, and there’s still a lot of [content] left to film, so I hope you’ll enjoy all of it,” he added, hinting at a collaboration.
BTS Members are Going on a Hiatus to Complete their Military Service
The news of Jin’s track comes at a time when fans were disappointed over BTS going on a hiatus since the members have to complete their mandatory military service in South Korea. On Monday, the band’s management announced that the group will reunite sometime in 2025 after their service is completed.
Meanwhile, the members will continue to work on their individual projects. “We’re each going to take some time to have fun and experience lots of things. We promise we will return someday even more mature than we are now,” the band had said in June 2022, revealing their plans for a hiatus.
