His official positions include main vocal, lead dancer, and sub rapper…yes you heard right! While long-time ARMYs know that Jungkook has rapped in the past, newer ARMYs might be surprised at the news.

Previously, Jungkook revealed that he had taken lessons for rap before. “Did you know that I learned rap before too? I don’t think my brain was ready for it back then. If I were to learn it now I don’t know…I think I could do it but I don’t think I would be that good.”

BTS’s rap teacher Yankie, however, thought differently. “I taught Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook often. There were many times I was shocked at how fast Jungkook was able to absorb everything.”
