Instead of performing with the Map of the soul on tour, BTS actors released a full-length album and single, “Dynamite,” which took them to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 album and even won them a Grammy Award. (Their first Grammy nomination, of course.)

Jungkook, the youngest singer in the boy band, won a title from People, the “Sexiest International Man” for the year 2020, the first person ever to receive the title. Shortly afterwards, fans took to social media, posting “#SexiestManJungkook” on Twitter.

This K-pop idol defeated celebrities including Dan Levy, Keith Urban, Matthew Rhys and Paul Mescal and even gained recognition in one of the other popular People categories – Sexiest Man.
