Jungkook on wanting to be a ‘giant pop star’
Speaking with Weverse magazine, Jungkook said, "I only have one, big goal, and it’s to be a giant pop star. I’m not thinking about what the next concept I pursue is going to be or anything. Seven wasn’t something I planned in advance either—Producer Bang Si-hyuk just played it for me, and it was so good, I said, 'Oh, I definitely have to do this one'." When told that he is already a 'giant pop star', Jungkook said that he didn't 'see it that way'. He also added that it's his 'ambition to be more appreciated and be even better. In a word: cool. That’s the whole reason I’m doing this'.
Jungkook on never being content with his work
When asked about Jungkook's comment that he has 'never been 100% satisfied', he said, "I’m a lot different about that now than I used to be. In the past, if I made a mistake, I felt weighed down by that moment and tortured myself with it, but now if I do something wrong I just tell myself to do better and keep practising. I started to keep things nice and simple. If you mess up, you just accept it and say, 'I make mistakes too'. That’s why I keep trying to do a good job."
