“Left and Right” is Charlie’s third single leading up to his upcoming album Charlie, set for release in late 2022. 

The single comes just ten days after BTS members candidly told fans that they were feeling burned out and were taking a break to focus on their solo projects.

“We’re each going to take some time to have fun and experience lots of things. We promise we will return someday even more mature than we are now. So I just hope that you could give us your blessing,” Jung Kook told fans then.

BTS management later clarified, however, that the members would not be going on hiatus, and would continue participating in group activities as they do their solo work. – Rappler.com
