Fans react to BTS Jimin’s new achievement with his first OST, With You
With You marks the release of BTS Jimin’s first-ever OST. While the artist released a solo song, Promise, on SoundCloud in 2018, this new OST saw Jimin’s debut as a solo artist on Spotify. Given that this is his first time working on a K-drama soundtrack, ARMYs are beyond proud of his new achievement.
With BTS on the journey to embark on their solo careers, fans can’t wait for what Jimin has in store for them. Though the idol has put forth solo songs like Serendipity and Lie in BTS’ discography before, fans are quite intrigued to know what an entire album of Jimin’s songs would sound like.
