Jungkook, a “global pop star,” appeared on Audacy Live.
At 11 a.m. on the 14th (Korea Standard Time), the U.S. radio platform Audacity posted a video of “Audacy Live: Jung Cook” on its official YouTube channel.In the video, BTS Jungkook performed the title track “Standing Next to You” from his solo album “GOLDEN,” solo singles “Seven (feat. Latto)” and “3D (feat. Jack Harlow)” and unveiled the performance of the new album’s track “Closer to You (feat. Major Lazer).”The video begins with a scene where a mysterious woman gets out of her car and enters the antique concert hall.Jungkook then appeared on the stage and presented “Standing Next to You,” and Jungkook’s “complete performance” in a chandelier embroidered with ceilings, audience members, and colorful lights reminded me of a scene from a special show.
Jungkook performed “Seven” and “3D” stages as he crossed inside and outside the concert hall, and the natural flow of stories, sensual editing, and Jungkook’s powerful energy that was delivered beyond the screen made a video that could not be taken off his eyes for a moment.
In particular, scenes and props reminiscent of each song’s music video were placed everywhere, adding to the fun.The antique theater reminded me of the background of the music video for “Standing Next to You,” a reinterpretation of the scene of a fight between lovers in “Seven,” and a public phone booth reminiscent of “3D.”
The end of the video was decorated by the track “Closer to You”.Jungkook, who appeared by doubling the dreamlike atmosphere, continued his unwavering live performance and released the performance of “Closer to You” for the first time in line with the EDM rhythm, giving off another charm from the previous stage.
Meanwhile, Jungkook’s solo album “GOLDEN” released on the 3rd entered the second place on the U.S. music media Billboard’s main album chart “Billboards 200,” setting the highest ranking K-pop solo artist record.Shinbo’s title song “Standing Next to You” is making a global sensation by ranking fifth on the main song chart “Hot 100.”
