On June 12, 2013, Jimin made his debut as a member of BTS with the release of the single “No More Dream”. In the group, Jimin holds the position of vocalist and dancer. Under BTS, he has released two solo tracks: “Lie” and “Serendipity”. The song “Lie” was released in 2016 in the album Wings. It was described as stunning and dramatic, conveying dark undertones and emotions that helped reflect the overall concept of the album. In contrast, “Serendipity” from the album Love Yourself: Her released in 2017 was soft and sensual, unraveling the joy, conviction, and curiosity of love.
Both of Jimin’s solos “Serendipity” and “Lie” surpassed fifty million streams on Spotify, a first record in five years by a K-pop solo song after Psy’s “Gentleman”. The songs were also the only solo songs by a BTS member in Official Chart’s 20 most streamed BTS songs in the UK. Jimin’s song “Promise” (2018) saw Soundcloud’s Biggest 24-Hour Debut Ever, surpassing the record set by Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle’, according to SoundCloud. It is currently the most streamed K-pop song on the platform.
In 2018, he was awarded the fifth-class Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit by the President of South Korea along with other members of the group.
