On April 17, news outlets found out that Jungkook was set to return to Korea. While the journalists and media waiting had cute comments ahead of Jungkook’s arrival, the airport quickly filled with ARMYs wanting to welcome the idol back.

When he finally arrived, the fans all erupted. Despite being tired from his activities and traveling, the idol greeted fans and gave them hearts as he walked through the airport.

Even in photos taken by the press, Jungkook was seemingly bright and loved interacting with those around him, even if he was probably exhausted.

Yet, the reason that Jungkook’s arrival was so significant was because of fellow BTS member J-Hope.

It was confirmed that J-Hope was the next member to enlist for his mandatory military service after Jin. During his final live broadcast, J-Hope chatted with ARMYs to reassure them about his service.

He also made hearts melt after revealing revealed that, even though Jungkook had a packed schedule overseas, he adjusted it so that he could see J-Hope off.

Something I was moved by and heard from the management team was that Jungkook’s schedule was already filled but he adjusted it for me hearing that, I thought ‘I’ve raised a kid well’ This is just a joke. I was really touched. He adjusted the schedule, saying, ‘I must go when hyung goes.’

After Jungkook arrived, netizens couldn’t hide their bittersweet feelings. While they shared how happy they were that Jungkook was home and had a good time at Coachella, it meant that J-Hope’s enlistment was closer than ever.

For many, it also showcased parallels to the end of 2022 when V returned from an overseas schedule to ensure he was there for Jin’s enlistment.
