Jungkook’s thoughts about Seven

Recently, Jungkook also said about Seven, “The key is originally this (sings the first line). But I have to do a test, see if I can do it or not since I have a cold right now. I can’t do falsetto very well right now.” Jungkook also added, “Whenever I get a cold it gets harder for me to control my voice. There are some people that sing better when they get a cold. But why am I like this?” Talking about the song, Jungkook also added, “The song is good, isn’t it? I knew the response would be good. I just trust my gut.”
