But Jungkook’s talent extends beyond the group’s collective achievements.

Born in 1997 in Busan, Jungkook was inspired by the iconic G-Dragon of Big Bang and American superstars like Justin Timberlake and Usher.

With relentless dedication, he honed his dancing skills both at home and in the vibrant city of Los Angeles.

He became one of the founding members of BTS, propelling the group to soaring heights. 

Not only did he mesmerise fans with his vocals, but he also played a pivotal role in producing tracks like ‘Love Is Not Over’ and ‘Magic Shop’.

Beyond the group’s endeavors, Jungkook has continued to make his mark.

Amidst the whirlwind of BTS’s success, RM fearlessly unleashed his self-titled mixtape, RM, in 2015.

The project soared to number 12 on the US World Albums chart, establishing RM as a formidable solo artist.

Just three years later, on the heels of BTS’s historic number-one achievement on the Billboard 200, he released his sophomore solo effort, Mono.

Surpassing his previous success, the album claimed an impressive number two position on the World Albums chart.
