Seoul, Apr 3 (EFE).- Suga, one of the members of the popular K-pop boy band BTS, will release his first solo studio album, “D-Day”, on Apr. 21, BTS’ agency Big Hit Music announced Monday.
Suga, whose real name is Min Yoon-gi, will release the album under his solo rapper name, Agust D.
“D-Day” is the last name of the Agust D trilogy following the mixtapes, “Agust D” and “D-2,” released in 2016 and 2020 respectively.
Suga has written and composed all of the tracks on “D-Day,” Big Hit Music said in a statement.
The South Korean singer is scheduled to kick off his first solo world tour shortly after the release of “D-Day,” which will feature a pre-release single from the album on Apr. 7.
The tour will begin in San Diego, with two concerts on Apr. 26 and 27, and will move to Newark, Rosemont, Los Angeles and Oakland.
The singer will then perform in Asia, with concerts in Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore before holding two concerts in Seoul on June 24 and 25.
The tour will end in Japan although the dates and venues of Suga’s concerts there have not yet been released.
Suga, 30, is the fourth BTS member to release a solo album, after J-Hope, RM and Jimin.
BTS announced a hiatus in October until at least 2025.
During this period, the seven members, RM, Jimin, Jin, V, Suga, J-Hope and Jungkook, will serve in the military – which in South Korea is compulsory for all able-bodied males for a minimum of 18 months – and focus on solo projects. EFE
