Although BTS‘s Jungkook is known for his singing and being a K-Pop idol, it seems as if he has many appearances in K-Dramas, even if it is indirectly. After recently being mentioned in the new show Peach of Time, it seems as if even fictional characters cannot get enough of the group’s maknae.
Here is a look at ten times Jungkook has made unexpected cameos in K-Dramas, even if he didn’t know it.
1. Peaches of Time
The most recent mention of Jungkook was in the BL (boy love) K-Drama Peaches of Time. In the episode, actress Ahn Da Bi’s character is serving some boys in her coffee truck when they ask for her number. After turning them down, she reveals her ideal type, but when the boys explain that nobody is like that, she explains, “Jungkook of BTS fits the type!”
2. Crash Landing on You
One of the most popular K-Dramas that mentioned Jungkook was 2019’s Crash Landing on You. During the seventh episode, the character played by Song Ye Jin meets a girl in Pyeongyang, North Korea. After meeting her, the girl explains that she is an ARMY and adds that her bias is Jungkook.
3. Hospital Playlist
Jungkook’s cameo in tvN‘s Hospital Playlist was definitely one of the more subtle appearances by the maknae. In 2020, Jo Jung Suk’s charismatic character Ik Jun was holding Babinski Cold Brew Coffee. The bottles happened to feature the faces of Jungkook alongside fellow members Suga and Jin.
4. Blessings of the Sea
In the MBC drama Blessings of the Sea, Jungkook was once again mentioned for his dazzling visuals. During one of the episodes, a male character said he had handsome friends and would gladly set up a blind date for his friend. To reiterate this point, he explained that one of them looked just like Jungkook.
5. Common Siblings
Common Siblings is a children’s series on YouTube and, despite the platform, is subscribed to by over two million people. During one of the episodes, the brother found a letter in his sister’s room saying, “Oppa, I will always love you.” However, he later found out that it was a fan letter to Jungkook!
6. Mr. Sunshine
In 2018, fans noticed that there were quite a few references to BTS in the K-Drama Mr. Sunshine. During one of the episodes, Jungkook’s name appears in a letter the protagonist sent to his grandfather urging him to support the uprising of soldiers across the country. Although it wasn’t direct, Jungkook’s name was written in Chinese characters.
7. Roller Coaster Reboot
In Roller Coaster Reboot, Jungkook was mentioned by one of the characters who seemed to perfectly reflect the thoughts of ARMYs. During the episode, the girl explained, “As I watch my vitamin, my life tonic, ‘golden maknae’ Jungkook from BTS, a smile automatically springs up like a mom’s proudly smile.” It is such a relatable line and perfectly describes Jungkook!
8. Pop Out Boy!
During the famous K-Drama Pop Out Boy!, one of the characters is trying to summon her celebrity crushes and, alongside Park Bo Gum, her other crush is none other than Jungkook! Like all ARMYs, she wished for him to come, but it didn’t happen, and many can probably relate to that.
9. The Uncanny Encounter
The appearance of Jungkook in The Uncanny Encounter was another cameo that only the most eagle-eyed of viewers would have noticed. Although BTS was directly mentioned, it was the cute picture of Jungkook on one of the drawings that caught the attention of ARMYs and warmed their hearts.
10. Girls’ High School Mystery Class
During an episode of Girls’ High School Mystery Class, one of the lead characters was trying to surprise the students. To do this, she exclaimed, “Is there anything that would surprise people? “Wow! It’s BTS! BTS came to our school! Woah! It’s Jungkook! V also came!” Although it didn’t do anything, it would have been enough to have ARMYs alert!
