Are Jung Kook and Jack Harlow Friends?

Jung Kook and Jack are definitely in the early stage of friendship, as the first time they had ever met was for the music video for “3D”!

“It was my first time seeing him,” Jung Kook explained during an interview with The Morning Mash Up on SiriusXM Hits 1, “and I got to play chess with him because it was there as a prop for the music video.”

While Jung Kook ultimately won the chess match, the K-pop star admitted that he definitely couldn’t take Jack in one-on-one basketball. “He’s actually tall, taller than me.”

Of the collab, Jung Kook explained Jack came to mind immediately while creating the track. “I just try to think as soon as possible, and I just try to think of someone that would be the perfect fit.”

“He’s a great artist that I like and have followed for a while. I had a lot of fun working with him. His voice fit ‘3D’ perfectly and really added to the sensual vibe of the song.”
