Fans call it 'heartbreaking' as BTS Jungkook changes his Instagram username
When BTS members opened their personal Instagram accounts, what surprised most were the unique user names each member had. Fans especially loved how the Golden Maknae of BTS used his unquestionable creativity on his handle. Well, Jungkook seems to have broken the hearts of many by changing his original Instagram handle to @jungkook.97, with his name and birth year separated by a period.
All BTS members had Instagram handles unique to their own aesthetic. For example, leader Namjoon (RM) stuck to his trademark ‘art-lover’ vibe with the handle - rkive (wordplay with R of RM and ‘archive’). Jin, on the other hand, proved his stage name was enough with his handle - jin, while Suga used his rap name - agustd.
J-Hope proves his love for ARMYs every day with his fan-favorite username - uarmyhope, which goes in line with his introduction - “I am your hope, You are my hope, I am J-Hope.” Jimin has kept it simple like his personality - j.m, and V used all of the initials of his first name Tae-hyung and his stage name V with - thv.
Jungkook goes basic by changing his Instagram handle
Fans of BTS and Jungkook, in particular, are feeling betrayed as the singer's original username stuck to his aesthetic well and was loved by millions of fans worldwide who began trying out the same tactic for their Instagram handles. Originally, Jungkook’s username read @abcdefghi__lmnooqrstuvwxyz where he had included all letters of the English alphabet barring the initials of his birth name Jeon Jung-Kook, or JK, as he often calls himself.
BTS fans followed suit with the ‘Still With You’ singer as millions of Instagram handles were created with the same formula. Now that Jungkook has suddenly changed his username, fans are heartbroken because they were so used to him posting updates with his unique username. Some fans also complained that they thought it was a bot account because it lacked creativity, which accidentally led them to unfollow the official account.
One fan said, "WTF????? JUNGKOOK CHANGE THE USN OF HIS INSTAGRAM??? HEARTBREAK." Another said, "JUNGKOOK on Instagram because now it's not #abcdefghi__lmnopqrstuvwxyz ,,,, that username of #jk was perfect!!!" One user added, "Tiktok is filled with videos about Jungkook’s new IG name…we’re all dealing with the heartbreak." One fan asked, "Does jungkook know the heartbreak he has caused?" Another said, "Jungkook changing his user was worse than a heartbreak."
One fan joked, "People are going through 7 stages of heartbreak after jungkook change his username. Meanwhile jungkook now." Another asked, "JUNGKOOK GHANGED HIS @ ?!:)/€/€ is this what they call heartbreak?" One fan wrote, "You know what’s worse than a heartbreak? Jungkook changing his username on Instagram. So long user alphabet, I’ll always remember you," while another said, "No but jungkook removing his eyebrow piercing and changing his iconic alphabet username sit at the same table… this hurts more than a heartbreak im in pain."
One fan hoped that Jungkook's old username rests in peace saying, "You'll be missed! RIP!" Another said, "It's ok that you change your username but you are still our #abcdefghi__lmnopqrstuvwxyz." One fan joked, "Please sksksksksk our jungkook 's id is hacked welp."
