“97-Line” BTS’s Jungkook, ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo, And SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu Were Spotted Together In Busan… But Jokingly Denied Their Identities When Asked

Read the full story here.

The iconic 97-liners were spotted out and about in Busan recently. On August 24, 2023, accounts of having spotted SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu, BTSJungkook, and ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo at a barbecue restaurant popped up online.

A Vietnamese part-timer at the restaurant posted their story of meeting the trio online. It soon went viral on Twitter. The part-timer noticed that they were speaking in Japanese before switching over to Korean. This was likely because Mingyu was in Japan recently for his group activities. The part-timer nervously asked each person if  they were actually Jungkook, Eunwoo, and Mingyu.

The trio playfully denied their identities, but the part-timer did not give up. According to the worker, their conversation after the first denial went as follows.

  •  Part-timer: Eh, you guys are [Mingyu, Jungkook, and Eunwoo] right? Or are you really not?
  • All three: You’re right.
  • Jungkook: It’s a secret.
  • Eunwoo: Where are you from?
  • Part-timer: I’m from Vietnam. I’m a student here.
  • Eunwoo: What’s “hello” in Vietnamese?
  • Part-timer: [answers]
  • Jungkook and Mingyu: Copies her.

The part-timer shared that Eunwoo had accidentally spilled a little bit of beer on the grill, causing the oil from the meat that Mingyu was grilling to splash. Eunwoo yelped in pain as the oil splashed a little on his thigh. The part-timer gave them tissues to clean it up.

The part-timer also heartwarmingly praised the three for being handsome and friendly. In particular, Jungkook bowed 90 degrees before leaving, and thanked the worker. The part-timer shared that Jungkook was surprisingly the one who talked to them the most, as they were grilling the meat for the boys.

What an unforgettable experience it must’ve been for them.
