BTS‘s Jungkook has become a hit amongst locals after his recent Calvin Klein photos but has left many with confusion for an unexpected reason.
On August 14 (local time), BTS’s Jungkook sent the internet into meltdown when Calvin Klein posted new photos of the idol, showcasing his sexier side.
Calvin Klein didn’t stop there and posted videos that truly sent social media into chaos, with ARMYs sharing their relatable reactions to the new content.
Yet, while ARMYs rightly couldn’t stop gushing, fans of BTS couldn’t hide their shock when the quotes about the video particularly seemed to catch the attention of “locals,” which is the term for those not aware of fans of K-Pop.
In the quotes, Twitter users couldn’t hide their own compliments about Jungkook, with some even stating that they don’t like K-Pop, but they understand the culture and everyone’s obsession with BTS.

While locals couldn’t stop gushing about Jungkook, with many even changing their tune about K-Pop idols, many had one big question and seemingly came out disappointed… and it was all because of Instagram.
Back when the BTS members all created their Instagram accounts, like the other members, Jungkook treated ARMYs to a lot of amazing content.
Despite his huge presence, it was a massive shock when Jungkook suddenly deleted his account.
It meant that when locals wanted to find Jungkook on Instagram, they couldn’t hide their shock when they couldn’t find them.
He ain't showing on insta.

It wasn’t surprising that ARMYs found it equally funny when they found locals trying to look up Jungkook on the app, to find nothing.

Jungkook is continuing to gain popularity globally, especially among those who aren’t that aware of K-Pop. The fact that his lack of an Instagram account becomes a hot topic whenever this happens just makes ARMYs LOL even more and proves locals might have to invest in Weverse.
