K-pop band Seventeen has kicked off their Be The Sun World Tour with two shows in Seoul, before heading out to other countries. A number of K-pop stars turned up for their concert at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, including BTS member Jungkook. The youngest member of BTS is good friends with Seventeen’s member Mingyu, and seems to have turned up to support his bestie.
Seventeen made their debut in 2013, the same year as BTS, and Mingyu and Jungkook are both ’97 liners.
Jungkook posted a video from Seventeen’s concert on his Instagram, confirming that he was at the concert. He is said to have been joined by another friend, Eunwoo, from the band ASTRO. Fans have been excitedly sharing photos of Jungkook watching the concert from behind a glass enclosure.
