BTSV is currently completing his military service as per the compulsory enlistment rule in South Korea. The singer however like other BTS members tries his best to update fans about his well-being. 

During his military service, he released his digital single FRI(END)S on March 15, 2024. The song was released as part of an EP of the same name which has Instrumental, Sped Up, and Slowed Down versions of the song. 

In new developments, FRI(END)S has surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify becoming the first K-pop song in 2024 to have achieved the feat. FRI(END)S is a popping track entirely in English with an R&B and soul base which is where V shines. The song currently has over 102 million streams on Spotify.



V especially in his solo era has shown a more subtle and soft-toned side of his musical style. To big banging noise, he prefers the soothing yet grooving tones of Soul, R&B, and Jazz. FRI(END)S is a beautiful romantic track that sings relatable feelings of ending a friendship and beginning a romantic relationship with someone you like.

The music video based on the concept of a time loop depicts V as a constant in a world where in one version he is single and in one he has a love interest. Fans adored the video for its witty and genius concept and the way V shined throughout the video.
