BTS’ Jungkook celebrated his high school graduation with the other members

With over seven years since their debut, some fans knew these performances while they were still teenagers. During The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host asked each of the performers what they were like in high school. 

RM was a star student, excelling in almost every subject. J-Hope was an obvious performer to Fallon, while V sometimes slept while he was in school. That is, when he wasn’t out getting food with Jimin.

As the youngest member of the group, Jungkook shared that the members were there for him throughout his high school years. That includes the final stages of high school, like his graduation day and the celebration dinner afterward. 

“All of us gathered for both my entrance and graduation ceremony because it was after our debut,” Jungkook told the host of his high school experience. Suga and Jin both added, “I raised him up.”

Jungkook treated the other BTS members to dinner for his graduation

Thanks to videos posted to YouTube, fans learned more of what Jungkook’s graduation day was like. To celebrate this milestone, the artist treated the other members to dinner at a Chinese restaurant. According to Koreaboo, BTS celebrated Jungkook’s first day of high school at the same restaurant. 

This time, however, they celebrated as an official band, after their debut. Pictures from the same website showed Jimin, Jungkook, and RM eating black bean noodles (jajangmyeon.) Another picture showed Jungkook with his credit card and his face, full of laughter, when he finally saw the bill. 

The total amount Jungkook paid has not been confirmed by the idol. However, one fan on Quora wrote, “on graduation day, he paid 910,000 won (US$823.23) to treat his bandmates at a Chinese restaurant.”
