BTS's Jungkook recently called South Korea's volcanic island, Jeju Island, his favourite travel destination. Here are its 10 tourist attractions

The rumours of him going on a trip to Jeju Island with his girlfriend earlier this year had not even died down when K-pop sensation and Korean boyband BTS' golden maknae Jeon Jungkook revealed that South Korea's volcanic island was his favourite travel destination. During a sultry photoshoot with American fashion brand Calvin Klein, that opened a thirst trap for the BTS ARMY, Jungkook was asked “Where do you want to travel next?”

The 25-year-old star was quick to reply, “I haven't travelled a lot but I like Jeju Island.” This was enough to fuel fire to the rumour mills that were already running since January 5 this year when a post titled, "Jungkook was seen being on a date on Jeju Island. Taehyung and Jennie's date location last year... (sic)" set the Internet on fire as it featured Jungkook sitting at a restaurant next to an unknown female that the poster claimed was Jungkook's girlfriend.

The post's creator wrote under the photo, "Jungkook found love (sic)" and thousands of online users flocked to the comments section to debunk the false rumour by claiming that the photo posted was from the past when Jungkook had visited the restaurant with a group of his friends while another fan contacted the restaurant owner who had stated that it wasn't Jungkook's girlfriend but a female staff employee who works with him.
