Jimin's Musical Farewell Before Military Enlistment: "Closer Than This"

Jimin, a member of the globally renowned K-pop group BTS, has released a poignant new single, “Closer Than This,” as a love letter to his fans, the BTS Army. This release comes as Jimin begins his mandatory military service in South Korea, marking a temporary pause in his musical career.

“Closer Than This” is more than just a song; it’s a heartfelt promise and vow from Jimin to his fans. The lyrics, which Jimin penned himself, are imbued with affection and a sense of longing for the days when he will reunite with his fans. The song is a beautiful blend of nostalgia and hope, with Jimin reminiscing about past moments with the BTS Army and looking forward to future reunions.

The music video for “Closer Than This” is a montage of BTS’ journey, featuring clips from fan meetings and concerts, highlighting the deep connection between the band and its fans.
