Unfortunately, many people don’t have parents who support their dreams. BTS‘s Jungkook, on the other hand, was raised by a mother and father who gave him the freedom he needed to become who he was meant to be.
In a live broadcast, Jungkook shared a childhood story that gives fans a peek into his upbringing. It all started with a spelling test and a little dishonesty.
“When I was little,” Jungkook began. “I cheated on a spelling test and I got into a lot of trouble. I got a really good spanking.”
“My mom…I’m not sure what she told me, to be honest, but I think it was something like, “I don’t care if you get 100 or 0 on your tests. I don’t care about that. But the issue here is that you cheated.” I made a big mistake. Why am I talking about this?”
“Anyway, my parents were like that. When I was young, no matter what I did, they let me be and do whatever I wanted to do.”
“They only scolded me and corrected me when I did things that were obviously wrong.”
“So, up until now, I’ve never been under a huge amount of stress. So I’m really grateful for that. To my parents.”
“They let me do what I really wanted to do.”
“I’m so grateful,” he said. “I’m really grateful for that.”
