Some BTS members describe Jungkook as a ‘muscle man’

Following the release of their single, “Butter,” the BTS members answered questions about each other for the 2021 FESTA. They were also asked to describe each of the artists in this K-pop group. When it came to Jungkook, the youngest member of the K-pop group, Suga said that this performer “can do anything.”

“He’s like my younger brother,” Jimin said, according to a translation on the video. J-Hope said, “he’s the one I value the most recently.”

RM, the leader of the group, described Jungkook as a “muscle man.” Jin had a similar response, saying that Jungkook is known for having “lots of muscle.” V said that Jungkook is a “muscle monster.” 

Jungkook did not use those words to describe himself, but he sometimes shares a peek at his abs with fans, especially during live performances of “Fake Love.”

Several BTS members exercise together, according to Suga

Jungkook is BTS’ unofficial muscle man, often posting videos of himself boxing with his trainer. Other members are known for exercising, sometimes posting about their routines on social media. 

Although they all worked out often pre-debut, according to J-Hope, some of the artists in this K-pop group exercise more often than others. During the 2021 BTS Festa, Suga shared that he usually works out with RM, Jimin, and Jungkook.

“If you come to the gym, you can see soldiers like in movies. We’re like, ‘yes, baby! go, go,’” Suga said, imitating himself lifting weights. “When you open the door, you’ll see us shirtless saying, ‘we’re awesome, yes!’”

During one interview with BBC, the members of this K-pop group shared that working out is one of the best ways for them to relieve stress. Jimin even said that going for a run or sweating helps him sleep.

Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
