Jessi recently held an online fan meeting on the YouTube show 'Showterview with Jessi' to celebrate her new single, "What Kind of X."
During the show, Jessi replied to various fan questions that they sent in prior to the show. One fan asked her to share about her ideal type and asked her to mention a specific celebrity who is close to her ideal type.
MC Jo Jung Sik right away mentioned actor Ha Jung Woo as Jessi's ideal type. Jessi then protested by saying, "I think I said Ha Jung Woo too many times. I'm going to change it now." Then she began to explain, "There is a person I think is very cool these days. It's a member of BTS. This person became so manly these days."
Before Jessi could mention who it was, MC Jo Jung Sik shouted, "Jungkook." Jessi looked surprised and continued to explain, "He's not my ideal type, but he's grown so much." Jessi revealed that she had seen Jungkook when he was younger and explained that she had noticed how much he had grown. Then she explained that she wants to sing a duet with him.
After the show aired, netizens have been sharing their reaction to Jessi's answer on various social media platforms. Many netizens are loving Jessi's response saying Jungkook is her new celebrity crush.
