Jeon Jungkook, mononymously known as Jungkook, stepped into the limelight when BTS made their debut on the 13th of June 2013.
For thousands of fans all over the world, it was obvious that Jungkook was born to be a KPOP idol, and they instantly fell in love with him, making Jungkook one of the most beloved members of BTS.
As the lead singer of the band, Jungkook has contributed immensely to the international success of the boy band.
The Euphoria singer has topped music charts, trended on several social media platforms, and continues to display irresistible charisma that has captured the hearts of his fans and made them his family.
Today we’d be exploring some facts about BTS Jungkook that you might need to know if you’re interested in becoming a JK fan. Get ready to learn all about his age, height, parents, siblings, and sexuality.
What is Jungkook’s Age?
Born on September 1, 1997, Jungkook is currently 24 years old, making him the youngest member of BTS. He has been a part of the band for 9 years, which means that he was only 15 years old when he entered the world of KPOP as the lead singer of the band.
Jungkook is also multi-talented for his age, that is why fans have resorted to calling him the “Golden Maknae”. Here are some skills that JK has that made him earn that nickname:
- He’s very good at videography and editing
- He’s got impressive skills at painting and drawing
- He can play the drums and saxophone
- He runs extremely fast and has won running competitions in several occasions
- He can cook
What is Jungkook’s Height?
According to several sources, Jungkook’s height is estimated to be around 170cm or 5ft10. He’s somewhat the same height as his fellow bandmates Jin, JHope, and V.
And while V is reportedly experiencing growth spurts, it seems that Jungkook is not seeing any changes to his height anymore.
Still, there are other areas in Jungkook’s life that are continuing to grow exponentially, such as his career and net worth. I bet he’ll take that over a few more inches to his measurement any day!
Who are Jungkook’s Parents?
Devoted ARMYs around the world are dying to know the people who brought Jungkook into this world. However, information about his parents’ identity has never been revealed to the public. What we do know, though, is that he loves his parents with all his heart.
And when he left their house at the tender age of 13 to pursue his dreams, there’s never been a day that went by where Jungkook did not think about his family. In fact, fans have lost count on the amount of times Jungkook has gotten emotional because of his parents.
During a livestream, Jungkook shared how much his parents have influenced his life:
“When I was young, no matter what I did, they let me be and do whatever I wanted to do. They only scolded me and corrected me when I did things that were obviously wrong. So, up until now, I’ve never been a huge amount of stress. So, I’m really grateful for that… to my parents.”
While we may not know who Jungkook’s parents are, we’re 100% sure that they’re extremely proud of what their son has accomplished. Moreover, they’re very lucky to have a child as hardworking and loving as Jungkook!
Who is Jungkook’s Brother?
Unlike Jungkook’s parents whose identities are kept secret, Jeon Jung-Hyun, the brother of BTS Jungkook, is actually quite popular among the fans.
And even though we don’t know that much about him aside from the fact that he’s 2 years older than JK and knows how to draw, fans love him just as much as they love the Bangtan Boys.
Jeon Jung-Hyun is also a big fan of his brother’s KPOP group and often shares self-made fan arts through his Instagram account. Jungkook has even requested his brother to draw his bandmate Jin at one occasion.
Is Jungkook Straight or Gay?
Jungkook – or almost all male KPOP idols for that matter – has often been accused of being gay because of their unorthodox ‘masculine’ image. Apparently, real men aren’t supposed to wear make up or in any way, shape, or form, be artistic.
Of course, ARMYs have done a great job at protecting their idol, but that doesn’t stop some people from questioning his sexuality – especially since he’s being romantically linked to fellow BTS member V.
