When BTS members opened their personal Instagram accounts, what surprised most were the unique user names each member had.

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.

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.
