Interestingly, one of the popular group’s members is also a self-confessed Donnie Yen fan.
Jungkook had admitted in an interview that he is a huge fan of the popular actor. Asked which popular artist he wanted to work with, Jungkook revealed that he prefers Donnie Yen, saying he even wants to learn martial arts from him.
“I think Donnie Yen will contact us very soon… Hopefully, he will notice that we have a kid like this soon,” the Rap Monster was quoted as saying.
Had the group done their martial arts-themed dance like the one below during the concert, then Jungkook might actually have impressed his hero with his action style.
