  • KProfiles

  • Ms. Belle

    My heart hearts he’s growing up (*☻-☻*)

  • Sylvia Vue

    – Jungkook’s ideal type is someone who’s at least 168 cm but smaller than him, is a good wife, good at cooking, smart, has pretty legs, and is nice. Also a girl who likes him and is good at singing.

    *cries* well this isn’t me ;-; guess he don’t want me. jk I’m not that bummed out…or am i? when he wants a girl who’s height is about 5’5″, but you’re 5’2″ and a girl who has pretty legs, but you have bruised up ones…and a girl who is good at singing and you sound like a dying cow…

  • -KAARUL

    Jungkook is basically referring to IU ☺

  • innari

    Not even, since IU it’s not as tall as 168 cm (5’5″) , she’s just 162 cm (5 ‘ 3¾”) XD

  • im bored

    Thats why it says “(basic)”…

  • -KAARUL

    Jungkook once said his ideal type is IU😊

  • Celestin II Nicolaides

    I watched a YouTube video where he said that, “Jimin.” Is the one that he would date if he was a girl. Where did jin come from? Or am i wrong?

  • Ria

    Before he said it was Jin. Maybe he keeps changing his mind. 😀

  • Celestin II Nicolaides

    You’re right, maybe XD

  • Oken

    His ideal type sounds like the opposite of IU to be honest. I think he’s just a fan of IU and nothing more.

  • Jungkookie69

    That was almost me. I can’t sing for shit

  • -KAARUL

    https://youtu.be/Umh6sj5AZmI he said it on cam

  • Emily

    Jungkook is not 66kg he is 70 kg because I remember J-Hope said in one of 16 episode of Run(V live) at 9:36 minute.

  • Add fact: Jimin says that Jungkook smiles when he swears.

  • gia

    in which episode out of the 16?

Everyone in the group is good and very talented but jungkook is the one who captivate me. I really love him and I will be forever his fan who will always support h
    im from affar. I hope that one day I’ll be able to meet him personally and when that day comes, I’ll definitely kiss him in the lips and gives him my heart.

I don’t know how to cook but I must say that I am nice, I am not definitely his ideal type of woman but one thing is for sure, I can give him my loyalty and I will love him till eternity 😉💓💕 Saranghae Jeon Jeong-guk, my forever maknae

    His favorite intimacy with a girl is holding hands and flicking their forehead to tease them. lol (Information from a recent fan sign event). He likes noonas (older girls). He said if he wasn’t an idol, he would’ve picked becoming an athlete as a career instead. He’s been practicing and learning how to go Bowling. He’s gotten really good at it. His favorite international idol is Justin Bieber and recent favorite Charlie Puth. If he can choose his international ideal type, it would be Emma Watson and Scarlett Johansson.

    I love Jungkook. We all should. When I turn 18 years old, it would be possible for me to date him. He’d be 25 in 4 more years and it is a possible possibility. I love all of the BTS members but Jungkook is the cutest, coolest, and he is a really good singer. The kind of girls that he likes is basically like me. I smaller then him, I can sing well, and I really love him because of his cuteness.

  • Leighannah Selvage

    I love Jungkook. He is my favorite member. I’m 14 now almost 15 but when I become 18 years old, I could date him. It’s a possible possibility and when I’m 18 years old, he’d be 25 years old. He’s is really cute and I am basically the kind of girl that he likes.
