A character in the Disney animation was inspired by BTS‘ Jungkook.
On May 22nd, an idol star character with purple hair appeared in the Disney animation “The Owl House“.
The character, who has purple hair and features round eyes and a high nose, looks very similar to Jungkook‘s “Butter” activities.

He also thanked Dana Terrace, the producer and executive producer of “The Owl House”, for allowing K-pop artists to appear in the animation.
This is not the first time BTS has appeared in an American animation.

In addition, Jungkook was mentioned as the “favorite” of a character in the U.S. CWTV drama “Nancy Ryu“.
In the last episode of the U.S. HBO drama “Euphoria“, Jungkook‘s solo song “Euphoria” appeared as background music, captivating fans around the world.
Internet users who saw this cheered loudly with reactions such as “It’s really amazing” and “I think BTS is really famous“.
Meanwhile, “The Owl House“, directed by Bo Coburn, known as a fan of BTS to the point of following Jungkook‘s Instagram account, has been praised by the public and critics. The animation received many congratulations, including winning the Children and Youth Programming Award at the Peabody Awards last year.
