Jungkook has positively impacted many large well-known brands as well as many small homegrown brands in the past simply by wearing or using their products and causing a sold-out global crisis. His brand power has been likened to that of today’s biggest celebrities and well-known personalities, such as Elon Musk, Prince Harry, Megan Markle, and Jeff Bezos.
