Jungkook, a member of the popular South Korean boy band BTS, recently delighted his Indian fans during a live session on Weverse, a Korean social media platform for K-Pop idols. During the session, the singer shared some of his favorite songs with his fans, including “Naatu Naatu” from the south-Indian movie RRR.
Jungkook’s love for music is well known, and he often shares his favorite tracks with his fans. However, his decision to play “Naatu Naatu” on his Weverse live session came as a pleasant surprise to his Indian fans. India has one of the biggest K-Pop fanbases in the world, and BTS has a massive following in the country. Despite this, Indian fans rarely get noticed by their favorite idols.

“Do you guys know this song? This is from a recent movie called RRR!” Jungkook said during the live session, which was attended by thousands of fans from all over the world. His announcement immediately sparked excitement among Indian fans, who flooded social media with messages of joy and gratitude.
“Thank you, Jungkook, for playing ‘Naatu Naatu’ on your live session. We love you so much,” wrote one fan on Twitter. “This is a dream come true for us Indian fans,” said another.
For those unaware, “Naatu Naatu” has been nominated for Oscars 2023 in the Best Original Song category. The song, which was composed by M.M. Keeravaani and sung by Amit Trivedi and Anirudh Ravichander, has already won several awards and has become a fan favorite. Jungkook’s decision to play the song during his live session is seen as a win by Indian fans, who hope that it will encourage other K-Pop idols to notice their country’s vibrant music scene.
Jungkook’s Weverse live session was a reminder of his dedication to his fans and his love for music. Despite his busy schedule, the singer makes time for his fans and often shares his favorite songs and music videos on social media. His decision to play an Indian song during his latest live session is a testament to his willingness to explore and appreciate different cultures and music genres.
