Though BTS’s Jungkook loves to surprise ARMYs with his unexpected dance videos on TikTok, he made an exception and announced a future dance challenge to be up on his profile. And all of this is thanks to Suga.
Jungkook hosted a live broadcast on Weverse on October 4, hanging out with ARMYs from his house after a long break. He kicked off the stream by talking a bit about his upcoming album, Golden, sharing how hard he has been working on it.
He then started interacting with fans’ comments while playing music in the background. Eventually, he started playing the solo songs of his BTS members and jamming along.

When it was Suga’s turn, Jungkook played “Haegeum,” from D-DAY, and shared a funny episode about it. After the song’s release, Suga surprised ARMYs with a full choreography as well, which then progressed to a dance challenge.

Suga did the challenge with many artists, including NewJeans, LE SSERAFIM, TXT, SEVENTEEN, and his own groupmates Jimin and J-Hope.
However, according to Jungkook, the rapper often sulked that Jungkook never did the dance challenge. He proceeded to imitate how his hyung whined at him for this reason.
🐰yoongi hyung said "hey why didn't you do haegeum challenge? i thought you'd do it!" i said "i'll learn it" it'll go up on tiktok! i can't do it with you but i'll put it on TikTok!@BTS_twt

Though Jungkook wasn’t able to do the dance challenge with Suga, he promised during the recent Weverse live that he would do the challenge and upload it on his TikTok. But instead of dancing to the chorus part, which everyone else has done, he said he would do the hardest part of the choreography for Suga.
🐰 yoongi hyung sometimes said that "why didn't you do haegeum challenge, i thought you'd it"
🐰 i will do it for you hyung, this part, the hardest part and I'll upload it to tiktok
🐰 he was kind of pissed like "hey i thought you'd do it at least"

While he admitted that “Haegeum” is not particularly an easy choreography, he was confident that he could pull it off.
