BTS’s Jungkook recently appeared as a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s popular talk show, Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, to promote his solo album, Golden.
During their chat, Jimmy Fallon brought up many interesting incidents related to Jungkook, including his chaotic Weverse live, where he fell asleep to six million live viewers and his perpetual fear of microwave ovens.
Fallon also brought up the possibility of a solo world tour, allowing Jungkook to address the ongoing speculations.
Ever since Jungkook made his official debut as a soloist, ARMYs have suspected the possibility of him doing a solo world tour. It wouldn’t be unprecedented since his bandmate Suga already did one with the Suga | Agust D tour.
Speculations about Jungkook’s solo tour took root when fans spotted pre-release posters teasing his single “Seven” pop up in different cities around the world.

Many were even more convinced when popular radio host Ryan Seacrest seemingly “confirmed” it on his show in September.
And when Tanu Moino, the director of Jungkook’s “Standing Next To You” music video, recently shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the sets, fans discovered the words “JK WORLD TOUR” hidden on the posters.

While ARMYs were still on the fence about the authenticity of this news, Jimmy Fallon gave Jungkook the opportunity to address the topic. When he asked about the possibility of a Golden World tour, the audience got super hyped up, and Jungkook had to gesture to them to calm down with a smirk.
In his response, the BTS maknae clarified that he very much has the ambition of doing a world tour as a solo artist.
However, he admitted that his solo discography was not enough for that goal yet.
That doesn’t mean the hopes of a Jungkook solo tour are squashed forever. He assured ARMYs that once he builds up his repertoire well enough to feel ready, he will do a tour “in full swing.”
For now, Jungkook concluded, he would be happy if people look forward to his solo concert on November 20, which will also be livestreamed.
