Jungkook wore this #58 jersey and fans are having a field day with it

Jungkooks baseball uniform may have a hidden meaning.

BTS attended the Hanshin Tigers vs. Hokkaido Nippon-Ham game which took place on June 2, where Jungkook threw the opening pitch.

As is the tradition, the whole BTS crew was given custom jerseys, each with their own name and number on them.

In addition to his impeccable pitching skills, fans noticed something peculiar about Jungkooks appearance at the baseball game.

Jungkooks custom jersey had the number 58 emblazoned on the front and back which, if you dont know Korean, may seem totally innocent.

Now it is unclear whether Jungkook chose the number himself and, if so, whether he intended the pun, but in Korean, the number 58 can be broken down into 5, (오 = Oh) and 8 (팔 = Pal), which sounds similar to oppa. This means that Jungkooks jersey literally read Jungkook oppa.

The irony here is, of course, that Jungkook has claimed in the past that he doesnt like being called oppa.

Maybe Jungkook doesnt mind being called oppa after all?
