This preview video revealed snippets of songs from their upcoming new album, Skool Luv Affair. It previewed songs including, "JUMP", "Tomorrow" and more. Among the 10 songs of the album, highlights of 7 songs were revealed in this teaser.

This album preview teaser can be seen on the group's official website, bts.ibighit.com, and the management company's official YouTube channel.
BTS also released one of the songs, "Just One Day", for free on their official website on the 6th. The management company of the group, Big Hit Entertainment, said, "While it is fine to describe an album through words and photos, we believe that musicians must speak with their music," and added that they believe the release of this song will bring more interest to the album.
Their new mini album, "Skool Luv Affair", will release on February 12. BTS will be having a showcase at the Lotte Card Art Center in Seoul on the 11th before embarking on their comeback schedule.
