The K-pop craze continues to dominate streaming platforms. Between YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify, the genre has erupted with a cult-following of dedicated fans.

According to Billboard, Jimin’s latest track differs from the band’s typical energetic and electronic influence. Instead, “Promise” takes on a stripped-down acoustic feel.

BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, originate from Seoul, South Korea. The band started gaining momentum in the States after a live performance during the 2017 American Music Awards. According to Billboard, BTS were the first band to ever play the AMAs.
