In a pre-Butter-era Vlive, BTS' Jungkook said, "Thank you ARMYs for supporting small business owners during the pandemic! I'm happy if i somehow i can help a little!" He was referring to the fact that after he drank kombucha on another Vlive, the export of the drink surged big time. A fan page noted, "Jungkook showed his good influence once again. As JK drank kombucha at 'VLIVE', exports surged 800%. Following that, he said, “It is a difficult situation for small business’ with Corona.” “I wanted to say thank you to everyone because I think I can help them a little.”"
