BTS member Jeon Jungkook is the only K-pop idol who has ended up winning the hearts of Indian fans. The declaration is based on the findings of market research undertaken by the South Korean government, not on guesswork. Jungkook is the most popular Korean media star in India, as according to Big Data Hallyu Market Analysis 2021.
The Korean Agency, Sports, and Tourism, as well as the Korea Foreign Exchange Agency, undertook the study. In several categories, the 24-year-old singer, songwriter, and dancer were named the best K-Pop Idol. Jungkook is the most popular and highly K-Pop Idol in India, according to All Kpop.
For quite some time, the South Korean entertainment business has been earning international acclaim, and BTS is frequently credited with smashing the glass ceiling for its fellow K-pop musicians. Despite the fact that the band has yet to visit India, their Indian fans ensure that BTS’ work is recognized and promoted throughout the country.
Fans of BTS’ golden maknae in India have also expressed their delight at the news. “Jungkook is always appreciated in India by fans, locals, celebs, and media alike,” one fan tweeted.

Given the band’s devoted fan base, it’s worth noting that Indian creative artists frequently base their work on the Grammy-nominated band. Anshuman Sharma, a musician, altered several Jungkook singing clips earlier this year to highlight how the singer may have performed if he sung in Hindi. On Instagram, the video has 2.7 million views. Fans of Jungkook in India were overjoyed to hear this Anshuman-created version.
Meanwhile, on the artist’s birthday last year, Indian fans erected billboards and hoardings in several places across the country.

Why Are Bts Members So Popular In India?
First and foremost, they are a K-Pop group. Since the early 2000s, the Korean music business has risen fast, and it is now the world’s sixth largest music industry. With its expanding global appeal, it’s no surprise that India has become a major consumer of Korean pop music.
Second, BTS has the appearance of a typical Indian boy band, with black hair and dark skin tones shared by all seven members. Fans want to see themselves mirrored back at them by their idols, and this relatability component is vital to establishing a household brand in India’s music market.
In a nutshell, the group’s musicality and unique presentation are part of what makes BTS so famous in India. BTS is known for its catchy pop music and lively dancing moves. Furthermore, several of BTS’s songs address issues that are important to younger generations, such as self-love and mental well-being awareness.
