One of the best things about Instagram is that you can do so much on it, including updating followers on what you’re doing, finding out what idols are up to, and much more.
Since creating their own accounts, the BTS members have been learning about all the ways to use the platform. BTS’s Jungkook recently gained attention for using his account to promote other musicians.
On December 16 (KST), Jungkook treated fans by updating his Instagram story with a track that he was listening to. In the post, he shared the song “On The Low” by LA-based artist Justin Park with the caption, “The song is so good….”
After Jungkook posted the story, ARMYs worldwide quickly wanted to know all about this artist that Jungkook was listening to. Within a few hours, both the song “On The Low” and “Justin Park” started trending on the Korean music streaming platform Melon. His Instagram followers also jumped from 49,900 to over 57,000.

Yet, what was even sweeter was when Justin Park actually realized what had happened. On his own Instagram, Justin Park reshared a video of him singing the group’s track “Butter” and added the words, “Thank you Jungkook…@BTS.BigHitOfficial. Always was a fan.”
He also shared similar words on his Twitter, adding, “YOOOO JUNG KOOK from @bts_bighit @BTS_twt JUST SHARED MY SONG “On the Low” LETS GOOOOOO.”
Justin then shared another video, but he personally thanked Jungkook for posting his song, and it was clear that he was so grateful for it.
Guys, I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m just so happy and Jungkook, thank you. Thank you so much. BTS, thank you, you guys are doing amazing things for our people.

Justin then shared how grateful he was to the fans who had supported him over the nine years he had been making music. Considering how much work and dedication he put into music, it is nice to see him getting recognition.
If that wasn’t enough, after this happened, Justin Park finally realized personally the power and influence BTS has after his social media growth went crazy, alongside his notifications on Twitter.

Yet, if ARMYs had any doubts on whether Justin Park is a BTS fan or not, fans have been sharing evidence of the singer’s cemented status of loving the group.

As always, Jungkook has proved just how amazing he is, making sure to use his platform to promote artists who have worked hard for so long and deserve recognition. You can watch Justin Park’s whole cover of “Butter” below.
