Having debuted when he was still a teenager, it’s fair to say that BTS‘s Jungkook practically grew up in the spotlight.
Unfortunately, that also means he experienced the hardships of the K-Pop industry since a young age.
Knowing that, E NOW‘s Sakshma Srivastav asked if he learned anything valuable from his experiences that he will carry with him for the rest of his life.
You guys had your fair share of struggle in the beginning of your career. I want to ask you what’s one important thing like a lesson that you learned in that time that is very valuable, something that you carry with you until now and will stay with you forever.
— E NOW’s Sakshma Srivastav
Jungkook paused for a moment as he deliberated on his answer. After a while, he revealed that he was strongly influenced by his members through the years. In fact, he learned so much from them that it was difficult for him to pick just one lesson!
What I learned…From debut until now, I learned so much from our members, so it’s hard to pick one.
He revealed that his members are among the “many good people” in his life who positively influenced him and helped him grow up well. He thanked them for their influence, which helped shaped who he is today.
And it’s not that I learned a lesson. It’s just that I had so many good people around me that they influenced me, so I’m thankful.
Crossing his arms, he ended by stating, “I’m still building myself as a person.”
Jungkook may think he still has room for growth, but he already seems like the complete package as is!
