Jungkook’s love for IU is well-known, as he’s picked IU on multiple occasions as someone he’d like to befriend and who has his ideal woman characteristics.
It was no surprise when he couldn’t take his eyes off of her at the Melon Music Awards.
He’s such a big fan that he can’t really sit still in her presence.
So his reaction to an offer to sit next to the very same IU came into everyone’s focus.
After winning the Best Song of the Year, BTS members were looking for their seats, when they discovered that IU would be sitting right next to them.
Knowing that Jungkook is a huge fan, J-Hope encouraged him to go ahead and sit next to IU, but Jungkook couldn’t! He seemed too bewildered and dazed at the very idea of sitting next to who he considers his idol!
So RM ended up taking that coveted spot.
And Jungkook’s shyness in front of IU continued — when she stood up to receive her Best Album of the Year award, Jungkook couldn’t even look her in the eye!
He kept his head down until she passed and only looked toward her walking away to receive the award.
K Pop fans will surely empathize with Jungkook’s nervousness and shyness here. It just makes this member of world star BTS a more relatable idol!
