It might have been nearly a month since the 2022 GRAMMYs, but it seems like people still can’t stop talking about it. In particular, nobody can get over the fact that, despite not winning an award, BTS literally stole the show, winning the hearts of fans and celebrities worldwide.
Aside from their amazing fashion and undeniable charisma, the members put on a spectacle when they performed their hit track “Butter.” Despite all the difficulties and setbacks, the show was like something from a movie and definitely caught the attention of everyone watching.
In a recent article on Weverse, those who worked closely with the group on the performance shared their experiences working with the members, the additions and creativity the group had, and much more. It also seemed like they couldn’t stop praising the members, particularly the youngest member Jungkook.
Ahead of the performance, Jungkook tested positive for COVID-19. Despite all that and the lack of rehearsal time, the idol shone and put in so much work and effort to create a beautiful performance.
Of course, Jungkook obviously slayed on the red carpet and gained attention for his effortless visuals and charisma.
It is a well-known fact that the performance was spectacular, but it’s also known how close to the wire it was for the members and their preparation. The article explained just how late it was when the members finally got to practice together.
Despite this, senior creative director Son Sung Deuk explained that the arrival of Jungkook and J-Hope made everything work together.
It’s actually not their individual abilities that are important but the harmony between all the members, so I was really amazed by the synergy they exhibited as I watched them once they were all back together.

Even though Jungkook came to rehearsal straight after finishing his quarantine and recovering from COVID-19, the hard work of the group’s youngest member was not underestimated.
The article explained that even though most people might take it easy after getting the virus, it wasn’t the case for Jungkook, who “was constantly working on his steps and cartwheels.”
One moment that particularly stood out to the crowds was the moment when Jungkook came down from a wire, and even though it seemed scary, the group’s youngest member seemed natural.
According to those working with BTS on the performance, the stunt was only made possible because the group trusted each other’s abilities. In particular, Ha Jung Jae from the Concert Production Studio explained that Jungkook’s experience and personality made the moment so impactful.
(Jungkook) already had experience on a wire while on tour during their stadium concerts. He didn’t find it scary, and actually thought it’s fun.

It once again showcases that although Jungkook is seen as naturally gifted, the idol puts in a lot of hard work to ensure everything he does is a perfect standard. Considering the amount of effort each of the members put into the performance, it isn’t surprising that it was such an epic night.
