Moreover, they probed into the lack of any J-Hope paraphernalia around the city despite the ongoing hype for his new album and docuseries.

“The hate on JK has been so normalised & no one talking about this,” wrote an X user. A vast army of fans jumped in to claim that he should “go solo.” Similar trending hashtags, including ‘BTS Disband’, ‘ARMYs free Jungkook’, ‘ARMYs apologise to Jungkook’, ‘Jungkook leave BTS’ and more, added to the same line of thought.

Someone even wrote, “I just want him to be completely solo. I’ve saying this for years that bts is the one holding him back from getting bigger. From music perspective even their fandom. Jungkook doesn’t need bts and ratmys to be successful without them he can achieve even more.” 

Another fan echoed the idea, “I hope he becomes a solo singer in the future, and I hope he only cares and loves the people who support him the most, not the army (some of them are hypocrites).” A third tweet read, “Jungkook worked hard for the armys but they didn’t appreciate his effort.”
