BTS Jungkook, behind the scenes of Qatar World Cup performance…”I’m more nervous when I meet Bento’s team”
Jungkook, a member of the group’s BTS, expressed his feelings about the opening ceremony of the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Jungkook took the stage at the opening ceremony of the 2022 Qatar World Cup at Al-Kor Albait Stadium in Qatar on the 20th and sang “Dreamers,” the theme song of the World Cup. In the middle of the stage, Qatar’s national singer Fahad Al-Kubai also appeared, adding to the heat.
After the performance, Jungkook conducted live streaming through the fan community Weverse and had time to communicate with fans.
On this day, Jungkook said, “In fact, I wasn’t nervous,” and even though he was nervous, he said, “If I wasn’t nervous, honestly, it would be a lie. It was okay, but when I came down from the stage, I felt that I was a little nervous, he said.
He said, “It was a hot topic to go around here and there, and I wonder if it would look like I just came and played,” adding, “I also conducted rehearsals and kept practicing the stage alone.” “I can’t be completely satisfied with the stage, but I’m glad it ended without a big mistake,” he said.
When fans asked about the stage preparation process, Jungkook said, “I learned the choreography right after I came here. I learned the last choreography the day before the stage, he said. “I watched the video and got the rest (choreography) and put my own color into the stage.”
In particular, Jungkook drew attention by mentioning his meeting with the Korean national soccer team. On the eve of the opening ceremony, he visited the Al-Egla training ground where the Korean national team is training and met with coach Paulo Bento, captain Son Heung-min and other players.
He said, “I’ve met my Korean players. The picture came up, too. He said, “Honestly, I think there was a lot more tension just before meeting the players than the tension on the stage.”
“I said hello thinking, ‘Can I stay here?'” he said, “Because (the players) have to train.” I can’t take up practice time. I said, “I hope you don’t get hurt and get good results as much as you practiced,” and received the uniform. “Everyone was really cool,” he said.
Meanwhile, Jungkook returned home on the afternoon of the 21st after finishing his World Cup schedule in Qatar. After that, it is expected to focus on individual activities.
