Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Who do I want to be?”
BTS‘s Jungkook answered this question and many more in a new interview for Weverse Magazine. Although he is already perfect in his fans’ eyes, this humble perfectionist never stops trying to improve who he is as a performer and as a person.
Interviewer Myungseok Kang described him as “insatiable, in a good way”, and he agreed. “Yes,” Jungkook said. “This is how I want to keep living, and I hope this feeling never fades.”
“By gradually improving yourself, what kind of person would you ideally want to become?” Myungseok Kang asked.
“A person who’s crazy awesome in their field,” Jungkook replied with a laugh. “Those kinds of people look cool even when they do something different.”
“I still have a long way to go,” he added. “I feel like I could be more captivating and draw more out of people by improving any number of things, by trying hard to be confident about my singing, or the way I dance and perform.”
Although Jungkook has set personal goals, he emphasized that BTS comes first.
BTS is way more important and meaningful to me than I am to myself, so I’m not saying I want to do anything alone. But I hope I get to the point where I can perform alone for three or four hours in a venue full of people.
