BTS‘s Jungkook has showcased his immense professionalism when it comes to being onstage.
Earlier in the month, Jungkook released his album, Golden, with the title track “Standing Next To You.”
On November 8, Jungkook prepared for his performance on the TODAY Show. Considering the time of year, it’s not surprising that it was very cold and the idol could be seen shivering even before coming on the stage for rehearsal.

Throughout the rehearsal, while Jungkook was singing and interacting with fans, it was clear how cold he was. Whether it was putting his hands in his pockets or finding ways to keep warm, it was clear that the cold weather was being a menace.

At one point, ARMYs shared that he even had to tell staff how cold it was because it was impacting his ability to sing because of the low temperature and wind.
Jungkook talking to the staff:
It's so cold to the level that I can't sing. And wind is blowing. It's hard to breathe because wind is going through my nose pic.twitter.com/aYmRiN3OBd

Yet, despite all of this, Jungkook was seen rehearsing diligently and even interacting with fans by giving them fist bumps.

Considering how cold it was, it wasn’t surprising that even in the warmth while doing interviews, Jungkook was still feeling the cold. In particular, in one video, netizens noticed the idol’s fists closed as if he wanted to stop himself from shivering.
Even before the actual performance, Jungkook was seen warming himself up so that he could go out and perform in front of ARMYs, despite it being a cold morning.

Many fans shared how Jungkook’s performances always seemed to have extreme weather, whether it was rain or the temperature. Yet, the idol always puts 110% into every performance to make sure he can perform in front of ARMYs.
