The fans present at the venue noted that Jungkook had to endure freezing weather to perform the songs live. Despite this difficulty, he delivered his best for each of the songs, mesmerizing the audience with his live vocals and stage presence.

Jungkook’s apology, while sincere, has left fans confused. ARMYs flocked to social media to express their vehement disagreement with him, noting how they couldn’t even find any part of his live performance that wasn’t good.

Some fans were also upset over the fact that Jungkook is so hard on himself despite the cold weather being out of his control, which made it harder for him to breathe while singing.

Jungkook talking to the staff:

It’s so cold to the level that I can’t sing. And wind is blowing. It’s hard to breathe because wind is going through my nose

Man.. I wish I could be there for him and tell him to not stress over small things. He’s amazing, ARMY will always show up and be there. We believe and we know that he’s the best.

The level of standard and pressure Jungkook and all of BTS put themselves under sometimes is a lot.

I’ve seen bits of it. It was a great performance, he can’t do anything about it being cold.

While fans might not agree with Jungkook’s self-assessment, there is no denying how rare it is for a big star like Jungkook to publicly admit being dissatisfied with their performance and even offer fans an apology for it. It only shows how mature and secure the BTS member is in his role as a performer and his close dynamic with ARMYs that allowed him to be vulnerable like this.

 ARMYs rushed in to express how much they disagreed.
