Shortly after announcing the release of his solo debut album Golden, BTS star Jungkook is treating ARMYs, especially Kookies, to another experience they won't forget.

On Sunday, Oct. 8, BTS' record label BIGHIT MUSIC announced on fan community platform Weverse that the group's "golden maknae" will hold his first-ever solo concert next month.

Titled "GOLDEN Live On Stage," the concert will be held at the Jangchung Arena in Seoul on Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. KST (7 p.m. PHT) and will be livestreamed for ARMYs who couldn't attend the event in person. 

It will feature songs from Jungkook's upcoming album and provide attendees with an inside look into its production.

Jungkook's Goldenalbum is set to drop on Nov. 3, at 1 p.m. KST (12 p.m. PHT). It will comprise 11 tracks which, according to BIGHIT, are inspired by the K-pop idol's "golden moments."

Its release follows his two digital singles Seven featuring Latto and 3D featuring Jack Harlow which are also included in the album.

Apart from launching Golden, Jungkook is set to grace the stage of the 2023 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) as one of its performers. MTV on Oct. 7 announced EMAs' performer lineup, which also includes big names in the industry like OneRepublic, David Guetta, and Rema.

The Euphoria hitmaker is reportedly nominated for three awards, namely Best Song (for Seven), Biggest Fans, and Best K-pop Act.

Jungkook is the sixth member of the seven-member boy group to debut solo after they went into a hiatus to pursue solo activities in June 2022.

J-hope dropped his album Jack in the Box on July 15 of that year, followed by RM with Indigo five months later, on Dec. 2. Next came Jimin's Face on March 24, 2023, Suga's D-Day on April  21, and V's Layover on Sept. 8. All of the boys, including BTS' eldest member Jin, will reunite in 2025 after they have completed South Korea's mandatory military service.
