But when the singer, lyricist and composer witnessed Heartbreaker of G-Dragon on television, his mind diverted and from then on he aspired only to become a singer. It was a turning point in his life as thereafter he only aimed to become a singer.
But for him, the journey was not a cakewalk. Rather his first attempt was met with rejection. The pivotal member of BTS participated in one of the famous South Korean talent shows. But he was rejected during the audition. However, other entertainment companies thought that he had a spark and with time he managed to gain a foothold in the industry.
That is how he was roped in as the band member of BTS. Jungkook today is the third most adored celebrity across the globe with millions of fans following him. Success through BTS and other singles have made him a billionaire in a very short time and with fame came the rumours about linkups and dating.

Interestingly, similar to BTS, Blackpink, and Lisa both are very popular across the world. Fans started shipping Lizkook but eventually, the linkup just turned out to be a rumour.
The cutest member of the band was also linked to Cube Entertainment’s trainee Ko Seohyun, actor and singer Chaeyeoni from DIA, Lovelyz group’s Jung Yein, and also with Mochi or Min Jisoo. But none of these rumours has been found to be true although pictures of Jungkook with these celebrities surfaced a couple of times on the internet.
