Who beat whose record?
Regarding communication with fans, BTS members have always been on top of the game with frequent social media updates and Weverse livestreams. Off late, two of the members have been arguably the most active with live broadcasts, and they are V and Jungkook.
Though both of them frequently keep in touch with fans, their livestreams couldn’t be more different. On the one hand, Jungkook has built a reputation for hosting broadcasts that are unpredictably long and random. Once the BTS maknae discovered that he could go live whenever he wanted without his label’s permission, there was no turning back. He usually turns on the livestreams late at night, and so far, he has done karaoke parties, alcohol reviews, a Netflix-and-mukbang session, and live workout sessions while broadcasting.

He even once fell asleep in the middle of a late-night live, and the stream had to be turned off remotely by a Weverse tech!

On the other end of the spectrum is V, the master of short and straightforward live broadcasts. In the past few months, he has gone live at least eight times, most of those streams lasting less than ten minutes. His longest Weverse live lately has been half an hour long when he greeted fans while visiting Paris.
