“This Jungkook guy ate.”

It’s not really a surprise, considering how impressive his performance was. Even when faced with unexpected technical difficulties, with his insane talent and professionalism, Jungkook still managed to deliver a perfect show!

Yet, he was piquing football fans’ interest before he ever even performed at the opening ceremony. ARMYs noted that many football fans were lavishing praise on Jungkook’s World Cup song, “Dreamers.”

After his incredible opening act, gaining even more fans among the football community seemed inevitable. While many ARMYs were hilariously upset at the fact that World Cup attendees saw Jungkook live before they did…

…they were still happy to see Jungkook praised by football fans worldwide…and for his most unexpected qualities.

Even when that came in the form of enthusiastic and proud screaming!

An ARMY even showed how now Jungkook has gained tons of new followers on Instagram, all of them football fans.

Yet it’s not only football fans who are being converted, but major personalities as well! Jungkook left famous content creator Sammy Chaffai dazzled with his performance…

…as well as former Argentine striker Sergio Agüero (known as one of the best players of his generation), who hilariously commented, “This one dances well.”  The clip he filmed of Jungkook’s performance currently has over 3 million views.

Funnily enough, this was not even the first time Sergio Agüero expressed his enjoyment of BTS.

Jungkook has proven his and BTS’s global appeal once more, and he did so in the most iconic way!
