Fans were especially excited about Yeonjun and Jungkook’s interactions. BTS and TXT are still the only two groups under HYBE subsidiary BIGHIT MUSIC.

Fans noticed that Jungkook appeared to cling to Yeonjun since he was there without his members, so he stood close to the person he was most familiar with. Their interactions went viral as fans of the two were happy to realize just how close they were and that Jungkook had someone there. So, the BTS maknae was not really alone.

This reminds me of Jungkook confessing he used to pat the members butts when he got nervous but they aren’t around and I don’t think he has a butt patting relationship with Yeonjun so he’s gotta make do https://t.co/gTowDqZ7CA
