Jungkook Surprised Fans With His Michael Phelps-like Swimming Skills and Calls the BTS’ Maknae Jungkook Phelps
Jungkook is the topic of discussions again. The BTS member recently showed off his skills in swimming when he went in for a dip after finishing his concert schedules. A video was posted on the group’s official page on Twitter and so far, it has already been viewed for over four million times.
After viewing the short clip, fans could not help but be in awe as they saw how fast Jungkook had finished one lap. With his smooth glide, it was said that the maknae of BTS clocked at 29 seconds and this earned him the nickname Jungkook Phelps.
As everyone already knows, Michael Phelps is America’s greatest swimmer who won many golds in the Olympics. In fact, with his 28 golds, he is the holder of all-time records for Olympic gold medals. Now, fans coined the nickname for Jungkook for an obvious reason - the BTS member is a fast swimmer that he can compete in tournaments.
Meanwhile, BTS recently appeared on iHeartRadio after wrapping up their U.S. concert tour early this week. Halsey also appeared in the program which surprised the group, as well as the fans and this just showed how close the artists have become after their collaboration.
During the show, Jungkook was praised by fans for his witty answer to the question of who is the worst dancer in BTS. Although it appeared that some of the members are trying to point at someone, perhaps for fun, the youngest member of the group simply said that there is none as all of them are good.
In the live-streamed show, one audience asked, “Which one of the guys is most likely to mess up their dance routines?” and as quoted by Teen Vogue, Jungkook said, “We are perfect!” Fans were all praises for his response and the ARMYs were saying how proud they are of him because he did not just let any of this bandmates down but made their fans happy too.
