BTS fans reacted to Jungkook’s blue hair

A few weeks prior at the 2021 Golden Disc Awards, Jungkook debuted blonde hair. Just as fans were recovering from Jungkook shocking them with blonde hair, he dyed it blue.

Of course, ARMY was also still recovering from BTS’ captivating MTV Unplugged episode, making Jungkook’s revelation even more impactful. After Jungkook tweeted the photo, a firestorm erupted on social media.


One Reddit user wrote, “If there’s a man that knows how to break the internet, it’s Jeon Jungkook… What was the reason for him to do this to us in our emotional state just after the MTV unplugged performance.”

“… I was recovering from the MTV performance and jjk just popped up in my notifications. They literally just dumped all this content on us at once. We don’t deserve all this from Jungkook, he’s blessing us with all these selcas,” wrote a Reddit user.

What Jungkook’s blue hair could mean

It is possible Jungkook simply decided to dye his hair for fun. However, knowing BTS, it is easy to expect a comeback is around the corner once members dye their hair.

BTS’ MTV Unplugged performance was a celebration of their most recent album BE. It could also signify that BTS’ BE era is coming to a close and a new era is about to begin.

Only time will tell if Jungkook’s newly-dyed blue hair is a comeback clue or if the BTS singer is trying out a new style.
