Fans are always on the lookout for BTS updates, and the latest is the possible collaboration between Jungkook and one of GroovyRoom’s producers, Lee Hwi Min, after being spotted together.
After the group entered a hiatus last year, BTS is now busy doing solo projects. Since then, they have been dropping solo works and individual projects. So, what’s next for Jungkook?
Jungkook, Lee Hwi Min’s Alleged Collaboration
Fans have been looking forward to seeing Jungkook release his own solo album. As the youngest member of the global phenomenon band, he has shown his great musical talents and singing skills through the solo tracks he has previously released.
That said, as well as the other BTS members who have dropped their solo albums as of late, many expect Jungkook to do the same after being seen with the GroovyRoom producer Lee Hwi Min.
In fact, the latter shared a series of photos of them on Instagram, and fans couldn’t help but get excited.
One of the photos that got everyone’s attention was his snap with Jungkook, quickly sparking speculations that they were working on a project.
"Collaboration with Jungkook???? Yes please," one fan said.
"Jungkook and Hwimin is a crossover I didn't know I needed,” another claimed.
Jungkook on Rolling Stone’s The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time List
Jungkook and fellow K-pop idol IU made it to Rolling Stone’s list of “The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time.” They’re only the K-pop stars to do so.
The list spans multiple decades and a wide array of genres, topped by Aretha Franklin herself.
“Keep in mind that this is the Greatest Singers list, not the Greatest Voices list…,” the publication noted. “In all cases, what mattered most to us was originality, influence, the depth of an artist’s catalog, and the breadth of their musical legacy.”

Jungkook was placed at No. 191, and Kristine Kwak listed his great musical talents that made him part of the list.
“The multifaceted youngest member of BTS boasts a long list of talents—he’s a strong performer, written several songs, and is known to be extremely hardworking and humble despite the success he’s experienced at such an early age. He’s also an extremely gifted singer,” she wrote.
“In 2022, when his track with Charlie Puth, ‘Left and Right,’ became the fastest song by a Korean soloist to surpass 400 million streams on Spotify, Puth referred to him as one of the only artists ‘to have ever sent me perfect vocals,” she continued. “He hits high notes with ease and harmonizes with his members effortlessly, always giving his audience new ad-libs and unexpected vocal riffs to keep things interesting.”
IU, alternatively, sits at No. 135.
