Along with Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, and V, Jungkook appeared on group songs like “Permission to Dance,” “Butter,” and “Life Goes On.” He also recorded the solo songs “My Time” and “Euphoria” — both of which were featured on BTS albums.

Recently, the BTS members created their own Instagram profiles, sharing pictures from concerts, selfies, and even dog pictures. Thanks to his individual Instagram account, Jungkook sometimes answers fan questions about his daily routine and his experience with BTS. 

He also elaborated on some of his favorite foods/drinks, once saying that he doesn’t have a favorite flavor of ice cream. One ARMY asked Jungkook if he would rather never have pizza or never have banana milk again. 

“For me, I can live without eating pizza, but because I can’t live without drinking banana milk, I will choose the one where I can’t eat pizza,” Jungkook said, according to a translation on Twitter.

This wouldn’t be the first time Jungkook shared his love for milk/banana milk. In July 2020, BTS appeared on Waktu Indonesia Belanja, where Jungkook enjoyed a container of banana milk.

“It’s delicious, it’s delicious,” he concluded, giving his honest review to the other BTS members, according to one translation. “I’ll drink it while doing the interview.”
