Singer J-Hope, known as a member of the Korean supergroup BTS, was the first Korean solo music artist to headline a major U.S. music festival after he played the Chicago festival Lollapalooza Sunday evening. He performed a mix of his solo material and some of BTS’s biggest hits for the excited crowd.

J-Hope was dressed in mostly black for the top part of the set, wearing gloves and an oversized tee and pants along with an interesting collared necklace. He then did an outfit change partway through the set into an all-white ensemble accented by green sunglasses and blue gloves.

He also expressed his gratitude for the opportunity when he addressed the crowd with a statement in his native language of Korean. “I’ve grown so much through the whole journey with the album, and seeing the audience at Lollapalooza today gave me a firm belief for myself,” the singer said. “I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’m also proud of myself for enduring the challenges up until this moment.”

J-Hope was referring to his recently-released album Jack In The Box, which came into the world just last month. You can see the visuals for his single “MORE” below:
