People just recently announced the results after the poll ran for about a month. Jungkook won in this category and was officially named People’s Sexiest International Man 2020. He is the first person to win this title as it was the first time the category was launched. Unfortunately, his group BTS did not win the ‘Sexiest Chart Topper’ category and it was instead won by Watermelon Sugar singer, Harry Styles. The overall winner for ‘Sexiest Man Alive 2020’ went to Micheal B. Jordan, an American actor and producer, also known for his role as Erik Killmonger in the movie ‘Black Panther.’

It is a huge honour for Jungkook to be nominated for such a prestigious poll by a renowned magazine which proves his huge popularity and presence in the international entertainment scene.

Born on September 1, 1997, Jeon Jung-kook, better known by his stage name Jungkook is a South Korean singer and songwriter. He is a member of and vocalist in the South Korean boy band BTS. Jungkook initially had dreams of becoming a badminton player when he was young, but after seeing G-Dragon perform “Heartbreaker” on television, it influenced him to want to become a singer.
