BTS News

The reason is too cute!

From “Golden Maknae” to “Nochu,” BTS‘s Jungkook has tons of adorable nicknames!

One of his cutest nicknames, “Baby Star Candy,” has an equally cute backstory of how it came to be.

During a BTS’s 2020 GAYO DAEJEON Bangtan Bomb, Jungkook looked on fondly as he watched RM eat the star candy for himself.

Referring to small, star-shaped sugar candy, the nickname took off after BIGHIT Music used the name in hashtag for Jungkook’s birthday in 2021.
