As translated by Twitter user, @90staeguk, she wrote, "Today's peak story is that I went to Seoul Jazz Festival and sat very far from the stage, then there's someone sitting behind me. I was like 'wow, he can sing very beautifully' and when I turned to look, it was Jungkook BTS. At first, I'm not sure so I asked other people, 'Does Jungkook have his lower right lip pierced?' My friend said to look at the tattoos on his hand and it's really him lol."
The translation also read, "I sat there from 2 pm-6 pm, I waited for him to leave before I went to ask for his autograph. I didn’t want to ask for it when he was sitting because he might get uncomfortable. When I greeted him, he put his hand up and was like ‘hey!’ and let me shake/hold his hand, he asked where do I come from and when he knew he said Sawasdee-kab (hello) Khobkhun-kab(thank you) there are 3 people that asked for his autograph at that time he said, ‘I haven’t signed for a long time’ and I was so excited I can’t focus on the concert for an hour but I can keep my cool lol."
Reacting to the post, a fan wrote, "Thank you for waiting till the end to ask for autograph & let our Kookie enjoy the show. I'm so thankful she respected his privacy! and Jungkook is the sweetest. All of his interactions whenever he meets ARMYs are so sweet & special!!" Another person said, "You are a lucky girl. Thanks for respecting his privacy and approaching him at the proper time." "The fact that JK took the time to ask where she's from? Then proceeded to greet her in her language? My heart just melted. Why is he so pure and kind?" read a tweet.
