Jungkook explained his reason behind choosing Big Hit Entertainment and surprisingly revealed that his decision was thanks to another member of BTS.
On February 23, Jungkook was one of the guests that participated in Mnet’s New Yang Nam Show. During the episode, he confessed the reason for signing with his current agency, Big Hit Entertainment.
Jungkook began by saying, “I participated in Superstar K3 and received calls from seven agencies after.” The rest of BTS‘s members, who were listening to Jungkook’s story, added that they saw the business cards that Jungkook had received and revealed that there were from agencies bigger than their own.
Despite the calls from other agencies, Jungkook picked Big Hit Entertainment specifically because of one of his fellow members.
“I came to Big Hit Entertainment because Rap Monster hyung was so cool.”
