It’s finally happened. BTS‘s Jungkook called himself “Jungkook-hyung” for the very first time!
Back in 2013, fans never thought this day would come. Jungkook debuted with BTS at the tender age of 15, and for six years he was the youngest member of his group and Big Hit Entertainment.
When TXT debuted on March 4, Jungkook officially lost his status as the company’s maknae and became an older brother to TXT. Fans eagerly awaited the first public interaction between Jungkook and his TXT dongsaengs, and it finally happened on March 7.
On March 7, TXT tweeted the first ever TXT x BTS group photo, along with a sweet message.

“Thank you so much to our seniors who took time off from their busy schedules to share good conversations and their sincerest advice with usㅠ We’ll work hard so that we don’t embarrass you as juniors! We love you, BTS #BTS #TOMORROW_X_TOGETHER #BTS #TXT”
Soon after, Jungkook replied to TXT. He told them to take care of their health and do well in their promotions. He also called himself…”Jungkook-hyung”!

“Jungkook-hyung” will take some getting used to, but that said, we can’t wait to see more interactions between him and TXT!
