BTS‘ J-Hope returns to Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, but this time to sing solo. Live from New York’s Time Square, the popular rapper will welcome the New Year 2023 in style by performing at this traditional and long-awaited party after living a 2022 full of successes.
His participation in the line up of the renowned American event was announced last Thursday, December 15th, shortly after the farewell to Jin who enlisted in military service.
In mid-July, the South Korean artist made his solo debut with “Jack in the box“. Two weeks later he celebrated the release of the album with a concert at Lollapalooza 2022, one of the most important music festivals in the United States.
