BTS’s Jungkook Could Have Been Classmates With His Faves From “Street Dance Girls Fighter”

They all went to the same school.

During the Street Dance Girls Fighter finale, BTS‘s Jungkook was rooting for his favorite dance crew. Not only were these dancers his pick, but they also could have been his classmates!


NEWNION is a 5-member dance crew of ’03 liners, who came in second place on Street Dance Girls Fighter. Throughout the series, NEWNION proved they have what it takes to be superstars.

On Instagram, Jungkook wrote a message to NEWNION, acknowledging their hard work. Several NEWNION members have since responded to Jungkook.


They were my first choice TT
All of you worked hard
I had so much fun watching while I was on break

— Jungkook

As it turns out, Jungkook and NEWNION’s dancers attended the same school, School of Performing Arts Seoul (SOPA), but at different times. Jungkook graduated from this arts-focused high school in 2017.

Members Kim Min JiHong Ha Yeon, and Simmon have all proudly worn SOPA’s signature yellow uniforms for photos and video clips on Instagram.
