On June 6, Jungkook guested on fellow BTS member Suga‘s audio live broadcast Honey FM 06.13. Out of all of the BTS members, he was the last member to guest on the show. On the show, he addressed his long break from talking to his fans.
It’s been a long time since I greeted everyone, and a very long time since I’ve been on radio, so I’m very nervous.
I did this radio show with Suga after a long time. It was a very happy time talking to all of the ARMY who I have missed a lot. I was very nervous even before I started talking to you all.
Jungkook also released a personal apology for his Itaewon visit back in April, which was revealed by Dispatch.
I think recently, many people have been upset with me or their hearts have been hurt by my actions. I felt very sorry to those who have had difficulties with this current situation, those who are working hard everywhere, and and to my BTS members. I also feel especially sorry to my beloved ARMY, as because of me, I think they had a hard time, so my heart hurts too.
I’ve been thinking deeply by myself recently. I talked a lot with the BTS members, and I looked back and reflected a lot on myself. I wanted to tell everyone personally through this live. From now on, whenever and wherever, I will be more serious when thinking and doing things.
Back in May, it was revealed that Jungkook was in Itaewon during the time social distancing was recommended. Big Hit Entertainment released an apology for Jungkook’s actions.
