On July 15 at 9:30 am IST (1 pm KST), BTS’ J-Hope’s immensely anticipated solo album ‘Jack In The Box’ was released, along with a music video for the title track, ‘Arson’. Previously, on July 1, J-Hope had pre-released his track ‘MORE’, along with its music video. ‘MORE’ and ‘Arson’ serve as double title tracks for ‘Jack In The Box’.

Prior to the premiere of the music video for ‘Arson’, there were already over 35,000 people waiting, by the time the clock struck 9 am IST, while the music video had crossed 62,000 likes. With five minutes to go for the premiere, this number had risen to over 113,131 people  waiting, and over 187,000 likes. By 9:30 am IST, there were over 353,633 live viewers tuned in to the premiere of J-Hope’s ‘Arson’, with over 256,000 likes.

With all the destruction, chaos, and everything burned around, it is evident that he has managed to break out of the box. But this freedom has come with a price. As for the rapper himself, he has sure raised the temperature. He appears in burned clothes. It’s hot! Flames are spreading not just in the MV but towards us as well.
