“The golden tweet that South Koreans retweeted the most in 2018 is this. It has been retweeted over 610,000 times,” a tweet from Twitter Korea read, which has been a success in its own right, having quickly been liked over 22,000 times.

The group’s fan base widely known as “Army” erupted in glee via Twitter, showering the group with a flood of moving images to celebrate the impressive feat.

“Golden Maknae gaining another gold status,” one Twitter user wrote. Jungkook is the youngest member of the group, which is referred to as the “maknae” in Korean.


One fan chimed in to clarify some minor confusion over another tweet with a clip showing J-Hope doing the #InMyFeelings challenge, which had more retweets and shares than the Golden Tweet featuring Junkook.
