To celebrate this solo debut, Spotify is letting fans discover more to the music of Layover and V as a soloist with a series of new episodes on its K-Pop ON! YouTube and Video Podcast channels.
In Spotipoly V Edition, V gives his all to ace the missions and win chances to personally introduce his new album to ARMY. In between challenges that had the self-proclaimed game lover fishing against the clock, rain-making, and dropping a beat with mini instruments, V takes us on a journey through Layover, sharing the stories behind each track.
On the UNBOXING SHOW, V juggles between surprise missions, and unboxing and answering some of ARMY’s burning questions. From talking about his current hobby, to the little things that bring him joy, his fur-baby ‘Yeontan’, and TMI from the making of Layover – this interview with a twist unpacks the many charms of the global star.
“In life, going directly to your final destination is pretty rare. So through this “Layover”, I hope people can take a break, self-reflect, and look back on your goals. I wish that everyone, including myself, would not neglect themselves because they are too focused on their work. When working or doing something, rather, I hope they can think about their health and happiness and other aspects of their mental well-being. Sometimes, it’s okay to take a break,” says V in the UNBOXING SHOW.
