Jeon Jungkook the Golden Maknae (meaning youngest member). He is the youngest member of Biggest K-pop Group in the world BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan). Jungkook is known for breathtaking vocals and brilliant dance moves. This youngest member has a huge fan following and is adored by fans all around the world. Beside dancing and singing this talented K-Pop idol also has other talents like painting, wrestling, photography, video editing ,rapping and beat-boxing. But BTS’s Golden Maknae was not always this outspoken and confident. Infact he was a very shy and introverted person at the time of his debut.
When this recently turn 24 years old join the Big Hit company as a trainee. He was only 15 years old when he auditioned for Big Hit new boy group BTS. “I became intimidated by large crowds,” Jungkook said. “I started to shrink after being surrounded by so many strangers. This might be the time that I began being shy around people I didn’t know.”
When he joined Big Hit Entertainment he was so shy that the CEO of the company Bang Si-Hyuk was concerned about this young teen. “When Jungkook was a trainee, he couldn’t sing when we asked him to,” Bang said in an interview with Korean news outlet OSEN. “He just twisted his body for 15 minutes and was very shy. He didn’t have much talent, so the company questioned if he could even debut.”
If we look back at 15 year old Jungkook who was not able to showcase his talent to 24 year old Jungkook who has sing ,dance infront of millions and millions of people. He really has come a long way.
