Jeon Jungkook from BTS is an absolute star of K-pop. The golden maknae of the band is known for his many talents, and the list never seems to end.
From singing to dancing to being a pro in almost all sports, he has undoubtedly developed a personal fandom for himself.
More than that, the BTS vocalist is also known for his influential power. He has a massive fan following, which has resulted in him being called the 'sold out king.'
The Euphoria singer possesses the Midas touch since everything he uses sells out in minutes. Multiple times, the BTS star has made headlines and created records. It has also led to small businesses thanking him for increasing their sales and popularity.
Jungkook, the 'sold out king': Five items the singer sold out
1) TEAZEN Kombucha drink
TEAZEN's Kombucha drink went viral after Jungkook was seen drinking it during a VLive session. Reportedly, after a week of him mentioning the drink, the sales of TEAZEN Kombucha rose by 500%. As a result, it was sold out in multiple departmental stores.
He not only helped increase sales but also made the shareholders of TEAZEN sell their ownership due to him attracting buyers. TEAZEN also reported an 800% increase in their exports after their drink got mentioned by the golden maknae.
2) Dress perfume
The maknae showed his love for dress perfume in a live broadcast session in 2016. After his Vlive, it was reported by the brand's CEO that the perfume was immediately sold out in Korea and was exported to 15 countries.
He also mentioned that the BTS member's brand power made them sell over 10 million bottles of the perfume globally.
3) Modern Hanbok
Hanbok is a traditional South Korean attire and was made famous by Jeon Jungkook. The My Time crooner was seen adorning modernized hanboks for quite some time, which attracted millions of fans.
He was seen wearing Hanboks from the company Zijangsa, which later revealed that the sales had gone up due to his influence.
Also, the Hanboks were sold out because of his power. Its popularity rose enough to make the brand sell its products offline for the first time.
4) Prada boots
Whether the item costs a dollar or thousands of dollars, if Jungkook uses it, it will be sold out. During a BTS live broadcast, the group's youngest was seen wearing chunky black Prada boots.
The chunky combat Prada boots were liked by ARMY members so much that the pair became unavailable on Prada's website.
It's rare to see luxury commodities getting sold out. But it's only a matter of hours when they are associated with the golden maknae.
5) Whale-tail necklace by Delixir
Most of the time, Jungkook is seen wearing accessories and outfits from small businesses. His whale-tail necklace from the brand Delixir is one example.
The singer helped the company make their tail pendants go out of stock after he was seen wearing them. Delixir is a brand that donates to protect abandoned animals.
Even during an interview with Weverse Magazine, he wanted to help small businesses during the COVID-19 situation, even if it's just a little bit.
