BTS' Jungkook sports blonde hair for ‘Black Swan’ performance: Fans can't wait for 'romantic angel' at GDA 2021
The rumors first surfaced online when a picture from an unverified source leaked and depicted the K-pop vocalist sporting blonde hair
Jeon Jung-kook, popularly known as Jungkook, is making hearts swoon with rumors of his mysterious blonde look. The one question on everyone's minds is: Has the youngest member of the South Korean boy band BTS gone blonde or is it fake news? Well, it's true.
The 23-year-old is all set to flaunt blonde hair during his Golden Disc Awards (GDA) 2021 performance on January 10, 2021, aka Day 2! The BTS ARMY from all across the globe seems to be losing their minds in hope of witnessing an all-new avatar on stage. The anticipation only grew after Big Hit Entertainment shared a number of pictures from the event.
Catch a glimpse of the group here:
For the unversed, a picture from an unverified source leaked online and started circulating on January 9. In the photo, the K-pop vocalist was seen sporting long blonde hair. Although the BTS ARMY requested fans not to circulate or retweet that picture, speculations of the ‘My Time’ crooner in his new look for a much-coveted ‘Black Swan’ performance surfaced in no time.
Now, happiness knows no bounds as the news has now been confirmed.
Will Jungkook sport blonde hair for 'Black Swan' performance?
The trend for ‘Black Swan’ started shortly after BTS ARMY caught that viral photo floating around on social media. Well, this is not the first time the singer has surprised fans with his look. The ‘Euphoria’ crooner was last seen rocking blonde hair in 2018 for BTS’ travel series Bon Voyage in Malta.
In 2021, BTS' Jungkook is as formidable as ever. BTS ARMY can't stop wondering if they can handle Jungkook in a man bun and translucent shirt as he moves fiercely to the beats of ‘Black Swan’. Can you handle it? Jungkook appeared on stage to receive an award for BTS and his blonde hair was then revealed. Going by fan theories, Jungkook will perform 'Black Swan' on the second day and fans can't wait for it.
