To clarify, GMA has cancelled it officially and the recorded rehearsal is what should air. I feel so bad for Jungkook like he was all smiles the whole rehearsal 😭

Another netizen shared that it seems like Jungkook was aware that the performance could have been canceled, so he made sure to go on stage and perform in front of the ARMYs who had been waiting.
Jungkook already pre-taped the songs that means he was already notified that concert was going to be canceled but he knew that all the fans were waiting for all this time so despite the heavy rain he still went on the stage and sang those 3 songs,wanted to say hello to fans 😭😭 https://t.co/9G6qpPcSyT
