The South Korean K-Pop boy band BTS is one of the biggest music sensations in history and has taken over the world by storm. The band is extremely influential and famous across the globe. The main vocalist of the band, Jeon Jungkook, popularly known by his stage name Jungkook, is the most popular amongst the seven members.

Jungkook debuted as a member of BTS under Big Hit Entertainment in 2013 and has successfully established himself as the popular K-Pop star in the world. He became the most searched K-Pop idol on Google in the first half of 2020, ranking at the top for 22 out of 25 weeks with over 628.57 daily searches and has held the record since 2017.

The 22-year-old has also dominated other social networking platforms with his charming personality and dedication towards his fans. The singer was also ranked as the most searched idol on YouTube and was also the first and only singer in the world to gain over 10 billion views on TikTok.

BTS being the best-selling artist in South Korean history and the most popular band in the world, rakes in about $3.6 billion into South Korea’s economy annually and has a combined net worth about $60 million, according to Kpopstarz. This comes as no surprise as the group releases chart-topping albums, breaking records one after the other, and manages to easily sell out stadiums on tours both nationally and internationally.

The popularity and net worth of the individual members of BTS, including that of Jungkook is very impressive. 

The idol's solo track "Euphoria" which was released in 2018 sold over 4 million copies worldwide and became the longest-charting song by a male K-Pop artist on the Billboard chart for World Digital Song Sales, as per Seventeen. It was also labeled as the highest-selling B-side track by a South Korean artist. 

His song "MyTime" which was released earlier this year also attained worldwide success. The song was co-written by the idol and has surpassed over 50 million streams Spotify.

Jungkook, who has dominated the world as the most popular K-Pop star, reportedly has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
