J-Hope uploaded his first-ever Instagram Reel to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his new “Arson” music video.
The BTS rapper, who just released the solo studio album jack in the box while the band takes a temporary break, sat down to discuss the music video concept and share a glimpse of its impressive set and special effects.
“A lot of things are set on fire, leaving ashes behind,” J-Hope said of the artistic vision behind the song’s visual.
“The theme is visualized from this outfit,” he noted. “Overall, I plan to capture the message of this song with this music video.”
“Since I was young, I have worked with sparks of passion. And I thought these sparkles were the right material for it. That’s why I chose fire,” J-Hope explained.
In the clip – which has had over 34 million views – he then turned the conversation to his new album as a whole.
J-Hope said, “I put a lot of effort into this album. I tried to show my true colors there. I tried a lot of new things too. As you listen to my album, I hope you will see this new side of J-Hope and enjoy it.
The song, which just arrived via Big Hit Music with the album’s release this week, was preceded by lead single “MORE” on July 1.
