Less than a day after its release at 2 p.m. on Sunday, the new song dominated the top songs charts on iTunes in 102 nations, including the United States, Britain, Japan, France, and Canada.
Later that day, during the 22nd FIFA World Cup opening ceremony in Qatar, Jungkook gave the song’s performance.
“Dreamers” is a happy song with the lines “Look who we are, we are the dreamers,” which captures the World Cup mood.
Just over 2.6 million people have watched the video of Jungkook performing during the opening ceremony, which was posted on FIFA’s YouTube channel about seven hours ago.

Since then, the group has been on the list of winners, taking home the prize for favorite pop duet or group each year for the previous four years starting in 2019.
It changed the course of K-pop history by becoming the first Asian act to win artist of the year, which is regarded as the highest honor, in 2017. Additionally, it was one of the megastars from all genres of music to take the stage at the awards show.

BTS’ Jin to release photo book before joining military
17 November, SEOUL (Yonhap) – Before enlisting in the military, BTS member Jin will release his own book of photographs next month, the group’s management company announced on Thursday.
The group’s “Special 8 Photo-Folio” project, which was started in September to highlight the group members’ unique personalities and new sides, will include the photo book, titled “Sea of JIN Island,” which will be released on December 2. Under the project, three additional members—Jungkook, RM, and Jimin—have each released their own photo books.
“Jin expressed various emotions that can be felt on the sea in this book using three concepts: captain, pirate and fisherman,” Big Hit Music said in a press release.
The singer, 29, made his decision to enlist last month, effectively putting an end to the debate over whether BTS should be exempt from active military duty in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the arts. Later, he decided against delaying conscription, which allowed him to enlist as early as next month.
