BTS’s Jungkook has spoken out against fans who have been criticizing his alcohol consumption during his live streams on the Korean social media app, Weverse.
The youngest member of the world-renowned K-pop group frequently interacts with his fans on the platform, often while drinking alcohol. Some fans have expressed concern over his drinking habits and one fan even asked him to not drink during his latest live session.
However, Jungkook had a fitting response for those who were trying to tell him what to do. “Why are you guys telling me not to drink? I’m an adult and 27 years old (in Korean age). While I’m still young, I want to drink. Life is just once, life is short. It’s not like I’ve lived it all, but it’ll be short most likely (like other people). Time goes by quickly for us all,” he said.
“i bought 6 whiskey bottles on the way home from the dermatologist, while tasting them one by one as the drink kicked in, you guys came to my mind.. it’s not that i drink on lives purposely, for some reason you guys come to my mind automatically once the drink kicks in”
Fans have responded with strong reactions to Jungkook’s latest statement:
“these people need to know their limits, stop telling them what they should or should not do. let them do whatever they want with their lives, it’s their own.”
“The way he said it tho:( I’m glad he’s doing what he thinks is right,,ppl shouldn’t be like that pls stop this behavior”
“Ahhh man everytime he came I just wish he won’t see any comment that make him hurt or anything but it always happens like man just watch him he’s coming live everytime he gets his time be thankful to him and watch peacefully”
“Yeah I’m worrying but I feel like it’s not my place to speak up. If anyone it should be the members who voice their concern because they are the closest to him; as I can see in this case, Hobi told him to drink moderately”
“these people need to know their place, they’re adults they have the right to do whatever they like wether you agree or not”
BTS members have been known for their positive influence on young people around the world. However, the pressure of being role models can also be difficult for them, and they are entitled to their own personal choices and preferences.
It is important to remember that celebrities, like everyone else, are entitled to make their own decisions about their personal lives. While fans may express concern or disappointment, ultimately it is up to the individual to decide what is best for them.
