Jungkook is known as the ‘Golden Maknae’ of BTS

He’s a singer, dancer, and the youngest member of the award-winning K-pop group, BTS. ARMYs also know Jungkook as the “Golden Maknae” of the boy band. The artist got this nickname for being talented at, well, everything. 

Jungkook sometimes posts videos of himself boxing with a trainer to Twitter. He revealed on a separate occasion that he’s improving his English skills. 

During one RUN BTS, Jungkook was able to do the bottle cap challenge, while in another segment of the same variety show, this artist mastered a flower arrangement. To some fans, Jungkook is also known as a talented painter.

This K-pop group initially planned on embarking on their Map of the Soul world tour during 2020. However, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, these artists spent time picking up new hobbies. 

For Jungkook, that meant painting and sharing his creations with BTS fans on social media platforms like Twitter. During an interview with Weverse Magazine, Jungkook elaborated on some of his recent hobbies. 

“I think I’m getting better overall, little by little,” Jungkook said. “My vocals are where I’ve definitely improved lately. And bowling! I learn how to paint by watching videos on YouTube. I think I’m good at picking up skills by emulating others.”

“I’m actually not good at learning things,” he continued. “I just like to do what I like to do, and I naturally learn from the people around me, I guess. And I think the things I really want to learn are still the same: singing, English, exercise.”

Jungkook is also a talented songwriter, singer, and dancer

Outside of his many hobbies, Jungkook is known for his musical skills. For BTS’ album released in 2020, Be (Deluxe Edition), Jungkook co-wrote “Stay.” He also appeared on solo songs like “Euphoria” off of Love Yourself: Answer and “My Time” off of Map of the Soul: 7. 

Jungkook also sings and dances for group songs like “Butter,” “Boy With Luv,” and “Dynamite.” Members like J-Hope, Suga, and RM also appear as the songwriters and producers for BTS, teaming up for songs like “Outro: Tear,” “Life Goes On,” and “Telepathy.” 

Music by BTS, including Jungkook’s solo song titled “Euphoria,” is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
