Jungkook thinks he has ‘mismatched personality traits’

During his interview with Weverse Magazine, Jungkook went in-depth about his goals and how he views himself. In his interview, the BTS singer revealed that he thinks he has “mismatched personality traits.”

“I have all these plans, but I have mismatched personality traits. I’m lazy, and inactive, and can’t be bothered with most things. So I try not to forget I made myself a promise to live a pretty active life, even if I have to force myself,” Jungkook shared.

He continued, “I’ve been feeling that way a lot lately, so I’m going to grab hold of that feeling and not miss this opportunity and keep moving. Yesterday, for example, I could have just chilled at home at the end of the day, but I worked out one more time instead. I think you have to force yourself to do the things you feel are a hassle one by one. That’s how I’m trying to live my life.”

Jungkook sometimes enjoys ‘learning things’

To ARMY, Jungkook is known as the “Golden Maknae” because he is considered to be good at everything. While fans view the BTS singer this way, Jungkook does not necessarily see things the same way.

Speaking with Weverse Magazine, Jungkook revealed that he does sometimes “enjoy learning things,” saying:

“I wish that weren’t the way I usually am. (laughs) It’s not like I only do things when I find them fun—I have fun and enjoy learning things when I finally get around to doing them—but I feel irritated whenever I have to do something and don’t want to do it right up until I start. (laughs) I think that’s why I’m only doing things that help me be a better singer for now.”

What the BTS singer is interested in learning

Jungkook was given the “Golden Maknae” title because of his musical talent, athletic ability, and his knack for picking up new skills.

In his interview with Weverse Magazine, Jungkook expanded on what he thinks he could “learn” to help him become a better performer and artist.

“If I tried to learn an instrument right now, I don’t think I’d feel confident in it right away, but I would still try to learn the drums if I felt like it. And dancing helps me for when I’m on stage. You listen to music when you dance, which is helpful too, I think. And boxing is helpful for becoming stronger, plus it’s fun,” said Jungkook.

The BTS singer continued, “I chose it because it’s the most fun aerobic exercise. Reading books and practicing are all because I have to write lyrics. The same goes for English: I don’t know what will happen in the future, but if I have to speak in English or do an interview, I could use it then, and I can use it to write lyrics, too. I feel like those all branch out from being a singer.”
