Much like the lyrics of his group's 2018 song Dimple, BTS' Jungkook has charmed his way into the hearts of many with his singing and "illegal" dimpled smile.

The 25-year-old superstar made his debut as the K-pop group's youngest member in 2013, and has since released self-composed solo songs like Still With You and My You.

His next highly anticipated solo single, Seven, will premiere with its music video on July 14.
