BTS‘s Jungkook dropped an unexpected and unexplained self-portrait, sending ARMYs into a frenzy.

He simply titled the vampire-esque photo “Me, Myself, and Jung Kook” along with the hashtags “Photo_Folio” and “Editor_JK.”
ARMYs have been speculating what it all could mean. Perhaps, Jungkook will be next to release a solo album after J-Hope‘s Jack In The Box.

While we know, Jungkook does, in fact, intend to release a solo album or mixtape, this photo may have nothing to do with it.
I could just make it about myself, and then it would be like, I started as a trainee when I was 13, I worked hard, and found success. But anyone could do that. So I keep thinking I want to make up my own original, complex story and write the songs from there. And it’d be nice to have a cohesive flow to the tracklist, but even if it’s all jumbled up, that’s fine, too, as long the good songs keep on coming.

As we know, Jungkook releases his creative projects, showcasing his directorial and video editing skills, under the name G.C.F (Golden Closet Films).
He’s very skilled with a camera, and that includes photos as well. So, we suspect that Jungkook might be releasing some of his creative photography. Previously, he has shared photos from trips to BTS’s official Twitter account, such as the ones below from Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
And as an ARMY pointed out in a now-viral tweet, Jungkook hashtagged the self-portrait with “#Photo_Folio.” Photofolio is clearly a combination of “photo” and “portfolio,” meaning it is a collection of a photographer’s best work. So, we are hopeful that Jungkook will release even more photos showcasing his talents.
a photofolio usually means a photo portfolio that showcases an artist’s best/representative work so this might mean that we’ll get a whole collection of photos and edits by jungkook 😭

Yet, some think it combines both theories: Jungkook’s solo music JJK1 and G.C.F.
Maybe I’m a clown but hey, I’m used to it lmfao
What if it’s JJK1, the album is titled Me Myself and Jungkook with single “Photo Folio” and everything is being edited by him. Concept, Images, MV, etc.
Omg I’m a recent Film/Video Editing graduate so I’m geeking out!
