For new fans, getting to know BTS can be a very confusing process. ARMYs are trending the hashtag #ArmyConfessionTime to share the funniest “facts” they believed about BTS, back when they first started stanning the group. Here are 10 “incorrect” facts about Jungkook!
1. Jungkook is the leader of BTS
— ZyrennE~♡ (@GonzalvoZyrenne) March 22, 2021
Fact: Close, but not quite. He isn’t the group’s leader, but he is the “maknae on top”!
2. He is in the same group as his biological brother, Jin
— MAYCEE ⁷ ⟭⟬ abyss 🐹🐯🍊 (@seokjinmylabsss) March 22, 2021
Fact: They aren’t related, but they do behave like true siblings!
3. His other name is “Maknae”
— 💜⟬⟭ ⟭⟬ ⁷💜 (@wintersoulavis) March 22, 2021
Fact: “Maknae” is one of Jungkook’s positions in the group. It means “youngest”. Korean men use “hyung”, meaning “older brother”, to refer to their older biological brothers or older male friends.
4. The reason behind his “Golden Maknae” nickname
When I was a babie ARMY, I thought that Jungkook's "Golden Maknae" was related to something golden ! I thought that Kook's favourite colour was golden, so they called him the "golden maknae" 😭😭 #ArmyConfessionTime pic.twitter.com/qb7mLTk7do

Fact: Jungkook is called the “Golden Maknae” because he is talented, or “golden”, at many things, including dancing, singing, and rapping.
5. Jungkook, V, and Jin are all the same age
— aritanstan🤍💜 (@loveBTSandARI) March 22, 2021
Fact: V is two years older than Jungkook, and Jin is five years older, but they could all pass for maknae liners!
6. He is a serious “bad boy” 24/7
#ArmyConfessionTime The first member I saw was Jungkook during his all black leather “My Time” performance, and I legit thought he was an intimidating bad boy who made that face all the time. pic.twitter.com/1MP1NCRYol

Fact: Jungkook performs fiercely on stage, but he shows his much more playful side to fans offstage!
7. Jungkook is an extrovert
— Ver⁷🦋 (@blair_O_) March 22, 2021
Fact: Jungkook is an introvert. His official MBTI type is ISFP, “The Adventurer.”
8. Jungkook and Jin are the same person
when I first discovered bts in 2016 I downloaded each members headshot pics onto my phone so I could practice their names and got confused between seokjin and jungkook for the first 2 weeks of knowing them #ArmyConfessionTime pic.twitter.com/xK7PfhsUHm
— cloᵗ⁷ kinda ia (@chimmyswaffle) March 22, 2021
Fact: Nope. Just nope.
9. He has a message “just for you”
It was when i was new to weverse then got a notification saying "Jungkook shared a moment with you" he really did shared a moment but i thought it was only for me😆🤡#ArmyConfessionTime pic.twitter.com/Gnlvwo1hIs
— Namjoonie (@Namjoon_061313) March 22, 2021
Fact: This Weverse notification gave us all heart attacks the first time we saw it! All of BTS’s “just for you” moments are actually “just for all 30+ million of you.”
10. This is his “sister”
— ᴮᴱJINGINUGH⁷ ˙८ ˙ (@jinginugh) March 22, 2021
Fact: Sometimes, fan edits are a little too convincing! Jungkook doesn’t have a sister, but he does have an older brother.
