Over the years, some people have shared stories of unexpectedly meeting BTS‘s Jungkook. Here are 3 of these stories.
1. Fan running into Jungkook at a restaurant
When the BTS members were on vacation, a fan ran into Jungkook at a restaurant. The original poster (OP) shared that there were 3 tables occupied at the restaurant. One by herself and her friends, one by a fan in her 40s with her son, and one by Jungkook. The OP and her friends initially pretended not to notice Jungkook since they wanted to respect his privacy.
The older fan later asked the restaurant owner to ask Jungkook if it would be okay for her to get an autograph. Jungkook happily said yes, and the restaurant owner told Jungkook that the OP and her friends were also fans. Jungkook came over to the OP and her friends and asked them for their names, and while the OP and her friends felt sorry for getting Jungkook’s autograph on his vacation time, they told him their names!
The older fan then asked Jungkook for a handshake, and Jungkook gave it! Jungkook then offered to shake hands with the OP and her friends! Jungkook soon left the restaurant and wished everyone well.
