South Korean singer and BTS vocalist Jungkook has won the hearts of Indians across the globe after a video of him jamming to 'Naatu Naatu' during a live stream went viral. The video shows Jungkook playing the hit song that has been nominated for the Oscars during a live session on Weverse. For the uninitiated, Weverse is an app that allows fans to interact with their favourite celebrity bands or artistes.
Apart from the BTS Army and Indians worldwide, the RRR makers were also happy to see the K-pop singer jamming to the song.
Jungkook...It's amazing to know that you loved #NaatuNaatu so much. We are sending a ton of love to you, the #BTS team, and the whole of South Korea. #RRRMovie,” the official handle of RRR tweeted. The makers also tweeted it in Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
Jeon Jungkook, 25, is the youngest member of the South Korean septet who has found massive success across the globe. Jungkook has solo hits including 'Euphoria', 'Begin', 'My Time' and 'Still With You' to his credit.
Meanwhile, 'Naatu Naatu' has become a massive hit globally with several artistes shaking a leg to the highly energetic song.
Recently, a video of the South Korean ambassador to India Chang Jae-bok and the embassy staff grooving to the hit song had gone viral. Indian movies are slowly finding a fanbase among Koreans. The Aamir Khan-starrer '3 Idiots' has a huge fan following in South Korea. The Indian cuisine is also making inroads with several restaurants popping up in the state capital Seoul.
'Naatu Naatu', composed by M M Keeravani, will be performed live by Rahul Spiligunj and Kaala Bhairava at the 95th Academy Awards ceremony on March 12.
