Jungkook said, “When I got off the plane after 10 hours, I was able to work right away according to the time difference in Qatar. I wonder if it would seem like I just came and played because it was a hot topic that I went around here and there. I continued to practice and prepare for the stage by myself. I can’t be completely satisfied with the stage, but I’m glad it ended without a big mistake.”

Regarding the choreography for the opening ceremony, Jungkook said, “I learned the choreography after arriving here. The final choreography I did with the dancers was something I picked up while watching the video and added my own color to it.”

Jungkook said, “Because of the time difference, when I woke up, all the pictures were published. Actually, I was more nervous about meeting the national team than the opening ceremony stage. When I met the players in person, they were all so charismatic.”
