The star added, “But when I listened to them again after a while, they didn’t sound good so I just deleted them all.”

However, Jungbook revealed that his bandmates — who all announced plans to take a “temporary hiatus” to focus on their solo careers — had supported his writing.

He added: “The other members tell me, ‘You need to keep making releases. So I’ve been writing songs lately.’

And he insisted he wanted to create something “truly unique.”

He explained: “I want it to be really unique. I want to write lyrics that don’t mean anything, like a song where the word ‘yes’ is repeated for a whole verse – something like that – but it’s hard.”
