Jungkook personally declared January 9, 2019 as #JKDAY, on the BTS 2018 Season’s Greeting calendar (he declared it and that’s all we need to know). And although the reason is not 100% clear on why that day was chosen by Jungkook, fans speculate its because it is the opposite of his birthday, September 01. Jungkook even left a memo with instructions for fans!
“Memo: JK DAY Write anything and post it !!! (on the internet)”
Regardless of the reason behind it, the global ARMY showed their power by using the hashtag #JKDAY on Twitter, and it’s gone absolutely viral all over the world.
When Jungkook made flip, bowed then thanked ARMY, this kid is so extra I can't 😂🤚

However, some fans pointed out that this was supposed to trend in 2019 and NOT 2018.

Nevertheless, eager fans just could not help themselves from celebrating JKDAY, even if it was one year earlier.
I love how Jungkook always expresses his emotions when he is on the stage. His tears, as painful as it is to see them flow, are tears of joy and pride for every new amazing thing that he accomplished. I hope he continue to trust us in sharing these special moments #JKDAY pic.twitter.com/SgjfTZfiij
