In his recent interview, BTS Jungkook discussed his relationship with ARMYs, and also shed light on the topic that has been of great concern within the fandom.
BTS Jungkook Addresses ARMYs’ Invasion of Privacy

However, over the past few months, the issue of certain fans invading his privacy has gained prominence, prompting the singer to address the matter directly through live broadcasts and Weverse posts, all while maintaining a remarkably polite demeanor.
With repeated breaches of his privacy, concerns have arisen among ARMYs about Jungkook’s trust in his fans.

He emphasized that he doesn’t “mind at all” when fans advise him not to stay up late or consume alcohol excessively, recognizing that these suggestions stem from a place of deep interest and affection.
Describing his relationship with fans as uncomplicated, Jungkook painted a picture of openness and honesty, where both parties can freely express themselves.
This, he explained, is why he can assertively request that fans respect his privacy when they encroach upon his personal spaces.

“It’s not a complicated relationship. I talk to them freely and they can talk to me freely.”
While BTS Jungkook expressed his willingness to consider fan advice, he made it clear that the ultimate decision rests with him.
“It’s my choice to listen to them or not. If they say something inappropriate, it’s also my choice, my freedom, to take that in and accept it or to ignore it.”

Meanwhile, ARMYs were quick to praise Jungkook for his healthy perspective on the artist-fan relationship, applauding his mature mindset.
- “He has to live his own life. But he’s allowing us to share in the conversation. It’s amazing”
- “Just saying that requires vast amounts of self-awareness n emotional intelligence. He is so assured in his love for ARMY n is the driver of his own emotions, not tainted by external sources”
- “So proud of Jungkook’s maturity. He grew up well.”
- “I wonder if he knows how impressive it is, to simply, kindly, and firmly draw that line. Open but sure of himself. Listening, but making his own choices. It’s just so SOLID.”
- “jungkook has openly asked us to treat him like a human being and yet some of y’all will deliberately disobey that. find some boundaries, I BEG. bts are not our friends, respect their privacy when asked if you genuinely have any sort of fucking care for them. this is just sick.”
