BTS’s golden maknae Jungkook is celebrating a special birthday this year with the members and fans with their first number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart!
The members left birthday messages through various social media platforms with Jimin even staying up until past 5 AM KST after hearing about their number one on the Hot 100.
Fans are even more excited about this achievement because of something Jungkook said in a past interview regarding his birthday wish and turning 24.
During an interview from a 2016 Birthday Talk To You, he received the question of, “What age are you looking forward to the most?”
I look forward to being around 24 years old the most. I’m very curious about what I will be doing during that time.
Q. 가장 기대되는 나이는 언제인가?
24살 때쯤이 가장 기대가 됩니다. 그 때 제가 과연 뭘 하고 있을지 많이 궁금하네요.

Well seems like our bunny Jungkook chose the right age to look forward to!
Two years ago during a MAMA 2018 interview clip, Jungkook revealed that he wished they could hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This just shows how amazing ARMYs are in making Jungkook’s wishes come true just at the right moment!
Although he may be only turning 24 (Korean age), he has accomplished so many things that people can only dream of. From debuting at 17, receiving the World Rookie award at 18, hitting number one and receiving daesangs before 21, performing at the AMAs and attending the U.N. assembly at 22, and performing at the Grammys at 23, he is truly the golden maknae.
According to Forbes, “The success of ‘Dynamite’ is nothing short of a paradigm shift for the way Western listeners regard non-Western artists….BTS has crossed the final frontier of global pop stardom. To deny their status as one of the biggest artists in the world at this point would be an act of willful ignorance.”
What a way to spend a birthday, huh? Congrats to BTS for yet another amazing achievement and happy birthday to the golden maknae Jungkook!
