The song has become instantly popular with fans, especially its music video, because of its catchy lyrics, cool clothing style, and Jungkook’s dancing. Jack Harlowe’s rapping is also appreciated by fans.
The cinematography of the song is unique, with Jungkook street dancing on mirror floors or ascending white stair steps. The camera angles used in the music video also add to its fascination. It is directed by Drew Kirsch, who has worked with famous artists like Taylor Swift, Shakira, Niall Horan, and Charlie Puth. He has directed music videos of songs like Lover and You Need To Calm Down, both by Taylor Swift, through which he came into the limelight for his beautiful work presentation.

Jungkook’s Past Work
In July 2023, Jungkook released a single called ‘Seven’, featuring Latto, an American Rapper. After being released on July 14, today, the song has 232 million views with 9.1 million likes. The song Seven has two versions, one original and another one an explicit version.
Seven was Jungkook’s solo debut song released through Big Hit Music, and the love from fans all over the world made it into a success story. The song made it to Billboard No. 1 in 2023, Billboard Global Song for the Summer.
Unfortunately, later, the song was involved in a plagiarism controversy. The accusation was of the song having a similar note to another song called ‘Time of Mask’, a hit song back in 1999. Yang Joon-young, the songwriter of the song, filed a complaint of plagiarism. However, Jungkook’s agency, Big Hit Music, firmly denied the accusation immediately.
In 2022, Jungkook recorded the song ‘Stay Alive’ for a webtoon based on BTS. The webtoon, named 7Fates: Chakho, is a collaboration between BTS and Naver Webtoon. This stand-alone song was produced by another BTS member, Suga, who is currently serving in the military and will be out of his service in 2025.
On June 24, 2022, Jungkook was featured in a song called ‘Left and Right’ by Charlie Puth. In India, the song debuted at no. 1. The collaboration was appreciated as it is known that Jungkook likes the work of Charlie Puth. In 2016, after he had covered Puth’s song ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’, the fans brought this to his attention. Then in 2018, they collaborated in a stage performance at the Genie Music Awards, the clips of which went viral.
