Sunday (Dec 18), Duran Duran is set to share a feature-length docu-concert film titled A Hollywood High. The film will be aired globally on the streaming platform Veeps from Dec. 18 through January 2. The band also recently shared their fifteenth studio album, Future Past (complete edition) on Nov. 25.
J-Hope was last heard on his debut album, Jack in the Box, released in July. He and the rest of his BTS bandmates are to serve their mandatory military service in South Korea for nearly two years each. The decision brought up a debate on whether or not artists should be exempt from serving.
A statement from Big Hit Music read, “Group member Jin will initiate the process as soon as his schedule for his solo release is concluded at the end of October. Other members of the group plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.”
