BTS’s Jungkook and IU
Jeon Jungkook, better known as BTS’s Jungkook, is the youngest member, or Maknae, of BTS. Jungkook once joined Superstar K but he failed, then he became a trainee of Big Hit Entertainment and refused seven other agencies just because he admired RM. His group is currently quite well-known around the world. Jungkook and his group have even collaborated with American singers such as Charlie Puth, Steve Aoki, The Chainsmokers, Nicki Minaj, and others.
Lee Ji-eun, or IU, is a K-pop ballad singer. In addition to her music career, IU has also worked to become a radio announcer and television host, as well as acting, and she’s has starred in successful television dramas such as Dream High and Moon Lovers:Scarlet Heart Ryeo. IU is also admired by many people for her figure, and also the way she diets just by eating yams and milk.
BTS’s Jungkook is IU’s Hardcore Fanboy!
BTS’s Jungkook has a number of idols, like Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, and G-dragon/GD. But, there’s only one female idol for him, and that’s IU. Since before he was a trainee, he was already IU’s fanboy. Many people say that Jungkook is IU’s number one fan, and he freely admits that he really loves IU.
Jungkook has never been shy about admitting that IU is his idol. It seems to come up every time he is on a television show, either by himself or as part of BTS. For example, on the TV program Flower Crew, Jungkook was asked if he had a girlfriend, and what kind of girl was his type. He answered that he doesn’t have a girlfriend, but his ideal type was like IU. Every time he’s been asked about his ideal type, he always says IU. Even so, whenever he’d meet IU directly, he was always shy.
Evidence that Jungkook is IU’s biggest fan is evident in the video uploaded on BANGTANTV channel four years ago. In the video, V, Jimin and Jungkook are in the park, listening to IU’s song Friday. V and Jimin are sitting next to each other, while Jungkook was standing behind them. When V and Jimin are singing, Jungkook takes a drink and plays with a ball behind them, and tried to annoy V. Then V stood up, and Jungkook took his place so he could sing his idol’s song.

Jungkook is also a singer and, as a fan, Jungkook often covers any song by his idol. In 2016, when BTS was doing a fan meeting, Jungkook sang a song by IU, titled Good Day. Even though he didn’t sing the full song, it still showed that Jungkook really admires IU’s music.
On December 19, 2018, Jungkook uploaded a video on Twitter @BTS_tweet, where he sang another IU song – “Ending Scene”. Then, because he received so many requests from ARMY who wanted Jungkook to cover the full song, he did it and uploaded it to SoundCloud on January 24, 2019. Jungkook made two versions of the song, with different arrangements. His voice is soft and melodious, so many people fell in love with his covers. Many fans are hoping that Jungkook and IU will do a collaboration and sing together one day
