Lots of K-Pop idols look up to BTS, and over the years, many idols have shared that Jungkook is their role model!
Here are 4 of these idols.
1. Jungwon (ENHYPEN)
ENHYPEN was formed through the survival show I-LAND, and in the last episode, BTS’s Jungkook praised ENHYPEN’s Jungwon. In an interview with Weverse Magazine, Jungwon spoke about Jungkook’s comment. He also revealed that Jungkook is his role model.
Some people are born with expressive faces, but that’s not the case for me. So I practiced making pre-planned expressions for each part. I believe that idols should be good at everything. So I think the point is to be well-rounded and do everything well. Jungkook became my role model because he’s good at everything. He’s very laid back on stage. So I take inspiration from his relaxed expressions and strong vibes – ‘Boy with Luv’ for relaxed expressions, and ‘ON,’ as well as the solo performance of ‘My Time’ from the recent concert for strong vibes.
Jungkook isn’t the only BTS member that Jungwon looks up to, as he looks up to RM as well!
2. Arthur (KINGDOM)
In an interview, KINGDOM’s Arthur revealed that he started dreaming of becoming an idol after going to the KBS Gayo Daechukje and seeing the performances.
After watching the performances of EXO, INFINITE, and BTS, who all have excellent performance skills, I thought about what it would be like to be on that stage.
Arthur also revealed that both BTS’s Jungkook and Jimin are his role models.
In terms of powerful dances, I love Jungkook’s dancing. For more clean and soft dances, I love Jimin’s style. They have been and still are my role models these past six years.
When asked if he had ever met his role models, Arthur said that he did meet Jimin once, but he was so shocked that it led to a hilarious moment.
I once came to the broadcast station for work, and as I was going to the bathroom, I bumped into BTS’s Jimin! I was so shocked, but I knew that I had to say hi and greet him. But what came out of my mouth was, ‘Hello, this is BTS.’
3. Jongho (ATEEZ)
ATEEZ’s Jongho is a huge fan of BTS Jungkook’s performance skills, which is why Jungkook is his role model. Like Jungkook, Jongho is the maknae of his group, and Jongho wants to display a charismatic and mature presence on stage like Jungkook.
“Jungkook from BTS is my role model. Just like how he is the youngest of BTS but he displays a charismatic and mature presence on stage, I want to, as the youngest of ATEEZ, also display a charismatic and mature presence on stage”
