Jungkook Isn’t BigHit’s Maknae Anymore, Here’s How Fans Are Coping
Now that BigHit Entertainment has a new boy group, BTS have a little brother, and Jungkook is no longer the company’s youngest member.
In 2013, Jungkook debuted at just 15 years old. This talented rookie won hearts with his adorable bunny looks and mischevious personality.
Six years later, the Golden Maknae is now a 21-year-old superstar. How time flies!
On January 8 (January 9 KST) fans trended #JKDAY to celebrate “Jungkook Day”.
Soon after, BigHit Entertainment dropped cryptic tweet, teasing about their new boy group, TXT. That’s when it hit ARMY: Jungkook has celebrated his last “Jungkook Day” as BigHit Entertainment’s maknae.

Everyone knows that Jungkook isn’t a fan of being called “oppa”, so how will he react to being called “hyung”?
Now Jungkook has no reason to be mad at us if we call him “Jungkookie oppa” he should be mad when the trainees call him “Jungkook hyung”😂#Jungkookhyung #BTS pic.twitter.com/HaQaw3Ap6R
