BTS‘ Jungkook showcases his versatile fashion sense on the cover of Vogue Korea’s October 2023 issue. This special edition presents four distinct covers, each inspired by a different musical genre: Jazz, British Rock, Punk and Hiphop. Behind the lens is the talented Park Jongha.
For the first cover (above), Jungkook sports a Givenchy sweatshirt paired with Vetements trousers. Transitioning to the second, he exhibits a more casual look with a t-shirt, a necklace used as a trouser chain and belt combination from Chanel, complemented by Gallery Dept trousers. The third visual flaunts a full ensemble from Ralph Lauren Purple Label. Finally, the fourth cover has Jungkook in a Martine Rose shirt harmonized with Ernest W. Baker trousers.
The captivating cover story, curated by stylist Youngjin Kim, showcases outfits from brands like EGONlab, ERL, and Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, while Naejoo Park manages hair and Dareum Kim oversees make-up. Set aesthetics are credited to Minkyu Jeon.
In a candid conversation, Jungkook reflects on his journey. From grappling with self-worth to recognizing the love and admiration of his fans, the ARMY, he’s evolved both as an individual and an artist. His advice on self-trust? “Admit and accept reality, and always strive harder.”
His fashion choices mirror his grounded nature. Preferring monochromatic outfits, he adds a splash of color through his shoes or goes all-black, making a statement of simplicity.
Jungkook recently added another feather to his cap by winning the ‘Song of the Summer‘ award at the VMAs. This monumental achievement marks him as the only K-pop solo artist to triumph in a non-K-pop category at this esteemed ceremony. In the race for the award, Jungkook stood tall among international music giants like Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, Fifty Fifty, Gunna, Nicki Minaj, and Ice Spice.
His debut solo track, “Seven,” released in July 2023, has taken the music world by storm. It not only clinched the top spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart but also reigned supreme on the Global Spotify Chart, amassing close to 16 million streams. Across the pond, “Seven” made its mark by securing the third spot on the UK Singles Chart, further solidifying Jungkook’s international stature and influence.
