Last time we talked about one of the brightest stars in the Korean entertainment industry, Cha Eun Woo. He’s not only an incredibly talented actor and singer but also a face genius – and as someone with a soft spot for him, I highly recommend reading more about him if you haven’t already!
And while we’re on the topic of Korean superstars, let me introduce you to Jungkook – also known as the “Golden Maknae” of the hugely popular boy band BTS. With his adorable bunny-like features and unmatched vocal skills, he’s a true heartthrob in Korea and beyond. He’s the perfect “oppa” – a term of endearment used to describe an older brother-like figure – who will steal your heart with his charm and talent.
Keeping the popularity of BTS Junkook in mind, here is a quick look at his Idol life and some unknown and unique facts about BTS Jungkook. For starters, let’s see who he is and what he does!
Who is Jungkook?
Jeon Jung-kook, known mononymously as Jungkook, is a South Korean singer. He is a member and vocalist of the South Korean boy band BTS.
With his song “Dreamers,” Jungkook became the first South Korean artist to perform at the world cup ceremony, the fastest South Korean soloist to surpass one billion streams on Spotify, and many other major achievements.
Jungkook is also a great dancer. He even went to the US to learn dance. When he returned, he was taught to choose dance as a career, but Jimin requested that he return to the team.
He is very interested in drawing, editing videos, and taking photos. He even made a video of his trip with Jimin. Apart from music, he is a brand ambassador for popular brands like Calvin Klein.
Unknown and interesting facts about BTS Jungkook
BTS’ Jungkook is one of the biggest K-pop idols of the current generation. The 25-year-old has cemented his position as one of the youngest K-pop idols to hold some success and fame.
However, despite being famous and lovable, there are some unknown and interesting facts about BTS Jungkook that every BTS fan or K-pop fan should know in general. We have listed these facts about BTS Jungkook below:
- Jungkook auditioned for many companies, but he chose Bighit because he was a big fan of RM.
- He is also a big fan of Justin Bieber and IU.
- He considered keeping his stage name as Seagull (from the countryside) before debuting as he is from Busan. The Seagull is the symbol of Busan.

Jungkook is always the cute bunny we all like.No matter what happens, he has always been strong. He has taught the army to always work hard and follow your passion.
Jungkook’s quote, which I think describes his character, is:
“Effort makes you. You will regret it someday if you don’t do your best now. Don’t think it’s too late but keep working on it. It takes time, but there’s nothing that gets worse due to practice. So practice. You may get depressed, but it’s evidence that you are doing good.”
