K-Pop idols like to keep it low when they step out in public. If they don't, they would probably block the traffic and make things worse with the ocean of fans they have. The same goes for BTS. You don't usually see them casually hanging out in public like the artists in the US.

The 23-year-old Jean Jungkook stepped out in public some years ago to explore Hongdae, a busy street in Seoul, South Korea. Fans were quick to spot him and take his pictures. Luckily, things did not fall out of control as BTS fans know how to respect their privacy.

Jungkook was seen roaming around the street and watched the busking. One fan spotted Jungkook but wasn't sure if it was actually him. So she walked up to him, tapped on his back, and asked, 'Are you Jeon Jungkook?' What do you think was his reply? Jungkook turned around with a smile and said, 'And if I am?'
