BTS’s Jungkook and Jay Park’s interaction makes a buzz on K-Pop Twitter

Today in K-Pop: BTS Jungkook and Jay Park surprise the Internet with their sudden meet-up and interaction.

On April 19, 2022, Jay Park posted photos of him and Jungkook on his personal Instagram account with the caption, “after I met Jk I can definitely can see why they (BTS) get so much love. Humble ambitious and talented.” As of writing, Park’s post has received over 2M+ likes and 78.5k comments on Instagram.

The photos see Jungkook and Jay Park’s closeness and “bromance”, with one picture seeing Jungkook’s arm around Park, and another with matching swag poses. Clearly, fans of both artists were in a frenzy—for different reasons. Seeing that Jay Park is considered by some K-Pop stans as a problematic figure in the industry, ARMYs were quick to edit the photos with other people.

Some also made memes of the situation, which is typical K-Pop stan behavior on the Internet, yup.

While the photos may seem like collaboration is in the works, ARMYs aren’t feeling it because of how infamous Jay Park is for his controversial statements in the past. What do you all think, readers?
