BTS member Kim Taehyung, also known as V, made an unexpected announcement about his new release titled ‘Type 1’. 

The announcement was accompanied by a monochrome poster featuring V leaning against a wall. Fans flooded social media with their reactions.

One user wrote, "And he says chapter two is not about them being shirtless." Another commented, "As if we weren't dead enough by now. ~Thanks V." A third fan wondered, "Are we sure we're on hiatus??"

Speculation arose about whether this was a new music release by V. However, BigHit Music confirmed it is a photobook capturing V's moments of complete rest, revealing his comfortable and natural self as he takes a break from his busy schedule. The photobook will be officially released on August 6.

The announcement sparked further speculation about a connection to Jimin’s upcoming album, ‘MUSE.’ 

Fans noted that Jimin has withheld details about his fifth track, titled ‘BE MINE,’ which coincides with lyrics from V’s single ‘Scenery.’ The teaser text reads, “I still wonder wonder beautiful story/ Still wonder wonder best part/ I still wonder wonder next story/ I want to make you mine.”

Back in March, V released his first single post-military enlistment, ‘FRI(END)S,’ entirely in English. This followed his September 2023 EP, Layover, released just before he began his mandatory military service in South Korea, along with group members RM, Jimin, JungKook, Jin, J-Hope, and Suga. 
V had confirmed he had several projects lined up for release during his 18-month absence, stating in December that he had “prepared a lot of things” for the period. “I will miss you so much,” he wrote, expressing his sadness at not being able to create new memories with his fans, the ARMY.
