ARMYs always wait for Jungkook’s release date and want to see Jungkook as a music producer. But it has been for a while since he talked about his mixtape. Will 2022 finally be the year for Jungkook‘s mixtape? The answer for the time of his mixtape has been revealed by Jungkook for so long and you will be surprised with the time that he said.
ARMYs have been eagerly anticipating the release of the Golden Maknae’s first solo mixtape, nicknamed JJK1. Over the past year, Jungkook has given updates about his progress and what ARMY can expect.
Jungkook ever shared that: “I could just make it about myself, and then it would be like, I started as a trainee when I was 13, I worked hard, and found success. But anyone could do that. So I keep thinking I want to make up my own original, complex story and write the songs from there. And it’d be nice to have a cohesive flow to the tracklist, but even if it’s all jumbled up, that’s fine, too, as long the good songs keep on coming.”
For instance, we now know that the BE track “Stay” and Jungkook’s self-composed single, “Your eyes tell,” were both originally intended for his mixtape. He said that: “We planned to put a different song on the album, but after V heard it, he said, ‘This song that Jung Kook wrote is really good’, and then the other members all listened, said it was better than the other one, and somehow (laughs) “Stay” made it into the album.”
As for the release date? Jungkook playfully teased it five years ago, at a 2016 fansign. When asked when JJK1 would drop, he wrote…
…2055! Hopefully, we won’t have to wait quite that long for JJK1, but there’s no rush. There’s plenty of time, and ARMY isn’t going anywhere!
