Just days after crashing Weverse, Jungkook broke Twitter. While the app itself did not crash this time, BTS fans were sent into a tailspin when Jungkook posted a selfie on Twitter. For months, members of BTS ARMY wished for Jungkook to keep growing his hair out while the group is on hiatus. Now, ARMY has their wish and they were not prepared.

Jungkook’s posts on Weverse caused the app to crash

BTS is currently on hiatus until their tour resumes in October 2019. While most of the members were still active on social media, Jungkook did not post for the first couple of weeks. The youngest member is known for being more introverted than some of the other members.

One night, Jungkook posted a string of messages on Weverse, an online community where fans and artists communicate. Jungkook only posted for a little over an hour, but the excitement surrounding his posts was enough to cause the app to crash.

In the posts, Jungkook wrote about playing Overwatch, sleeping, and eating rameyeon. BTS fans took to Twitter to discuss Jungkook’s posts and Weverse crashing. So many people tweeted about it, the event trended on Twitter. Because Jungkook did not post any pictures on Weverse, some fans wondered if it was because he grew out his hair.

“WHAT IF JUNGKOOK HAS VERY VERY VERY LONG HAIR RIGHT NOW AND HE DOESN’T POST SELFIES BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SURPRISE US AFTER THEIR BREAK,” a fan wrote on Twitter.

Jungkook started growing his hair out earlier in the year

Jungkook started growing his hair out at the beginning of 2019. It was fairly long during BTS’s Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour in May and June. When BTS held their 5th Muster for fans, Jungkook’s hair was even longer. Videos of Jungkook singing “Pied Piper” at 5th Muster went viral on social media.

“jungkook singing pied piper with his long hair. that’s it that’s the tweet,” wrote a Twitter user.

In August 2019, BTS performed at the Lotte Duty Free Family Concert. Jungkook’s hair was even longer, and once again his performance at the concert went viral. Fans began to wonder how much longer Jungkook would grow out his hair.

“We will never forget this day and the things the Lotte Family Concert has done for Jungkook’s hair,” a fan tweeted.

“‘I’ll grow my hair out a little bit longer’, Jeon Jungkook says…. this… he hasn’t reached his final form yet but are we even ready for it??,” another wrote.

BTS fans literally cannot handle it

ARMY was right about Jungkook continuing to grow his hair out during BTS’s hiatus. While most fans suspected it, seeing the photo of Jungkook with long hair was too much to handle.

“your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair your hair #JUNGKOOK,” wrote a Twitter user.

“the reason why jungkook didnt post anything its because he was waiting for his hair to grow longer so that he could kill us with a SELCA. he knows what he’s doing,” a fan tweeted.

“JUNGKOOK HASNT CUT HIS HAIR. JUNGKOOK. HASNT. CUT. HIS HAIR,” another wrote.
