Videos of J-Hope’s solo performance are now making rounds on the internet. At the concert, Hobi sported a cream-coloured sweater, paired with a bucket hat and pink sneakers. He performed songs like Chicken Noodle Soul, = (Equal) and even a remix version of BTS’ hit Butter while the rain came pouring down.
In some of the videos, fans are heard cheering for Jung Ho Seok and shouting ‘Go Hobi!’ Many of them also noticed his hurt wrist which was a result of him tripping down the stairs during rehearsals. But, J-Hope didn’t let anything stop him from putting his best for the last show of the year.
Reacting to the glimpses, a fan wrote, “Hobi slipped while walking down the stairs 🙁 overall the sound isn’t really good and his microphone kept turning off…. he seems annoyed at all the issues, keep in mind he’s the only that’s been having issues for rehearsal so far (like 4 artists have rehearsed already).” “The best part of my New Year’s Eve was watching J-Hope,” added another. Someone also said, “Wow J-Hope did amazing!!! He performed so well, speaking perfect English, also singing and dancing in the rain!!! I’m so proud.”
J-Hope also shared a glimpse of the new year countdown from Times Square on his Instagram account. Earlier, he was seen rehearsing with the dancers. Post performance, he went live on Weverse and surprised fans.
Meanwhile, BigHit Music’s TXT, Tomorrow X Together, made their first performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which took place in Disneyland Resort in California. Members Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai performed their tracks– Good Boy Gone Bad and 0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You).
