Queen of Korean Hip Hop Jessi reveals that she has a crush on Jungkook from BTS.
Jessi, who has her very own talk show, revealed who she has been into in her latest episode and the revelation has left the entire kpop fandom absolutely shook.
Today, on March 17, 2021, Jessi officially made her first comeback since her smash hit ‘Nunu Nana‘, after which, she participated in and promoted with Lee Hyori’s dream project girl group, effectively named Refund Expedition or Refund Sisters, indicating the strong personalities who make up the group who can elicit refunds for any and all things. Alongside her and Lee Hyori were MAMAMOO’s Hwasa and the legendary Uhm Jung Hwa.
On the latest episode of Jessi’s Showterview following her comeback, she performed her latest single ‘What Type of X’ after which she proceeded to reveal more details about her creative process, PSY’s reaction to her demo, and how this comeback came about.
She then took on fan questions, answering them in a very straightforward manner, as usual. However, when asked about who she has been into lately, it was especially lovely to see Jessi flustered for once. While fans know that actor Ha Jung Woo is her eternal crush, she hesitantly revealed that she was interested in someone else. Upon further inquiry, she shared that it was someone from BTS and emphasized that this particular member had gotten manlier lately. This hint was enough for co-host Cho Jung Shik to guess that this member would have to be the golden maknae himself, Jungkook!
What Type Of X Jessi’s new MV
Watch the Music Video of Jessi’s Latest Track below:
In the MV, Jessi is a queen who rules her black, gold, and yellow domain in a black body suit and more. “What Type of X” is a song that both Psy and Jessi worked on together along with johnjohn, JAE RO, CuzD, DONNA, and SPACE ONE, and it’s about being your own person despite any outside forces. The songstress exudes confidence through the lyrics she wrote with PSY and recommended the song –- complete with thumping beat and catchy chorus –- for exercise or when feeling angry.
Jessi held an online showcase to mark the release of a digital single “What Type of X” on Wednesday. There was not much of time to produce the song but it took such a toll on us, she confided, acknowledging with a bashful smile that she is trying not to get her hopes too high.
“We only had two days to shoot the music video, and it was the longest two days,” she went on expressing her gratitude for PSY, the head of her label and collaborator on the song, for staying by her side throughout the shoot. Everyone cried after filming it, and she was so grateful to the whole crew, she added.
She also added that when she was an advertisement model alongside BTS, the members were all rather young. However, now, they’ve all become more masculine, especially their faces. At this point, Jessi was too shy to continue and quickly changed the topic but not without expressing her desire to bring them on her show someday.
