I know what you're thinking; there are more than 7 things that make Jungkook golden (about 7 billion, actually), but hear me out! Seven is BTS' lucky number. They're comprised of seven members and have just celebrated seven years in the entertainment industry.
This charismatic group of stars has been blazing a trail of glitter since 2013. With the electrifying success of their first collective English track, "Dynamite", and the highly-anticipated launch of their new album and concert in the last quarter of 2020, BTS is an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. Let's not forget that they swept the recently concluded MTV VMAs by winning all four of their nominations, and made history as the first Koran act to hit the top spot on Billboard! (They are #Dynamite)
In celebration of the Golden Maknae's birth month, I've compiled the seven things that ARMY loves most about him.
I'm sure you're tired of reading posts about how amazing Jungkook is, but in case you've got room for more praises towards this Golden Maknae, you have come to the right place. So, grab your banana milk and polish your ARMY bombs, because these are the seven things we love about Jeon Jungkook.
Jungkook of All Trades
In case you were wondering, yes, pun intended. He may be the youngest out of the septet, but there is almost literally nothing that this man cannot do. He can sing like a nightingale at the break of dawn, dance with fluid gracefulness, and just exist with phenomenal charm. But that's not all! Based on their reality shows and TV appearances, Jungkook never shies away from a challenge. Whether it's bungee jumping, scuba diving, track and field, or archery, this K-Pop idol seems to have a handle on everything. Let me know if there is anything he can't do. I'll wait...
2. His Bunny Smile and Doe Eyes
If we were to count how many hearts melt every time Jungkook smiles, it would take us 10,000 hours. If his adorable smile was enough to set your heart aflutter, then I advise you to steer clear of his beautiful doe eyes that activate when he seems to be lost in his thoughts. He better be careful, because people could lose themselves in those midnight orbs. In other words, Jungkook's visuals are ethereal.
3. His Duality
While this superstar knows how to burn the stage with unparalleled performances, he can switch it up in a snap off stage. If you've ever watched Run BTS!, Bon Voyage, or BTS in the SOOP, then you have most likely already witnessed this powerful performer evolve into the cutest bunny rabbit who just want to play on swings and run through the grass. Be honest, it gave you a whiplash, right? ARMY stans an artist who can do both.
4. His Song Covers
Although he must be swamped with all the word for their upcoming projects, Jungkook always finds time to upload a quick song cover. From "Never Not" by Lauv all the way to the recently covered "10,000 Hours" by Justin Bieber and Dan + Shay, this maknae never fails to touch our hearts with his soothing glacier voice. We could listen to him sing for 10,000 hours straight.
5. Kookie x Cooky
I know there are some fans who have pictured Jungkook as the personification of a fierce bunny rabbit, so it's only suitable that his BT21 character is a pink bunny with abs.
6. Jungkook and the Hyungs
Walking in step with the older members of BTS, Jungkook radiates both a sense of profound maturity and a sweet childlike soul. It's all part of his unique charm. Earning the nickname, Golden Maknae, he also appears to have golden friendships with his hyungs as well. There are instances wherein he playfully rides Jin's back (or vice versa), or times when they would all randomly share hugs on stage. And do I really need to mention their antics in the B-side music video for "Dynamite"? The heartwarming friendship that BTS has forged among one another is an endearing sight to behold. (I'm not crying. You are.)
7. His Stellar Voice
From his serene glacier falsettos in "Euphoria" all the way to his enchanting vocals in "still With You", this singer knows how to serenade us with extraordinary charm. Jungkook is one of the most talented vocalists of our generation, and there is nothing you can say to change my mind. It's a fact and it will go down in history. ARMY, are you ready to hear this charmer sing live once again in October?
