It has not been long since BTS created their personal Instagram accounts. For years since their debut, they had only been using the group’s official accounts. On December 6, 2021, all 7 boys finally opened personal accounts, much to the joy of fans.
On May 30, 2022, fans realized that something was going on. Jungkook had deleted all his posts and highlights completely.
A fan had captured the process through video live. As they refreshed the page repeatedly, more posts were deleted.
As I witnessed Jungkook delete the entire Instagram post, I panicked and tried to tell him to stop, but I couldn't😭😭😭

Other fans began to try to deduce the reason for the delete.
listen there’s three options here:
1. instagram glitched
2. jungkook is just having a hehe haha moment and wanted to delete everything
3. something is about to drop

Some thought that he just wanted to create chaos.
there's just TWO LOGICAL reasons as to why jungkook deleted/archived his posts on Instagram.
1) as a normal human being, everyone on IG has that ONE moment, the urge to delete everything and start everything from start for aesthetic reasons.
2) bro wanted to cause chaos 😭
