Alt K-pop group Balming Tiger unveil music video teaser for upcoming single ‘Sexy Nukim’ featuring BTS’ RM

BTS rapper RM and Balming Tiger have dropped a music video teaser for their upcoming collaborative single ‘Sexy Nukim’

On August 28, Balming Tiger shared a snippet of the song and its upcoming music video via their YouTube channel. The visual features RM stepping into a mechanical repair shop, while the members of Balming Tiger receiving medical care, dressed all in white in what appears to be an asylum and later, a sauna.

‘Sexy Nukim’ is due out on September 1 KST.


The new collaboration was first announced via BTS’ official Twitter page on August 24, along with preview of ‘Sexy Nukim”s accompanying track art – an illustration of Balming Tiger’s eight members as colourful, animated characters set against a funky, psychedelic orange-themed backdrop.

Balming Tiger are a South Korean musical collective comprising a team of directors, rappers, DJs, singer-songwriters and editors who have described themselves as a “multi-national alternative K-pop group”. They debuted in 2018 with the single ‘I’m Sick’. 

‘Sexy Nukim’ will mark RM’s first solo endeavour since BTS announced in June that they would be “[taking] time to explore some solo projects” instead of focusing on group activities.

In the time since, RM has been teasing plans to release solo music of his own sometime this year, sharing in April that he has been “inviting really interesting and unexpected people to my album”.

In a follow-up update shared last month, RM told fans that he was “near the end of my work on the album”.  “I will probably be the next member after J-Hope to release my solo album,” he said. “Studio work is like 90 per cent done.”


In other BTS news, the seven-piece are set to hold a free live performance in Busan, South Korea in October in support of the city’s bid to host the forthcoming 2030 World Expo.
