The netizen was on a trip in Busan, Jungkook’s hometown, and called for an Uber ride. She noticed the driver’s name was “Jeon,” like the idol’s. So, she struck up a conversation with him about his last name.

Netizen: “Are there lots of people with the last name ‘Jeon’ in Busan?”
Driver: “Not many!”

After that, the netizen got into her character and started roleplaying without explicitly letting the driver know.

Then, can I call you brother-in-law?

Since the netizen didn’t tell the driver what she was doing, she thought he’d be dumbfounded. However, he responded immediately,

Because of Jungkook?

The two kept the conversation going, and as the netizen got off, the driver told her he’d cancel the fare for the ride. Indeed, the netizen got a notification about the cancellation.

Non-fan: “What’s the joke with ‘brother-in-law’? I’m not an ARMY.”

OP: “Because Jungkook’s last name is also Jeon.”

Non-fan: “I know Jungkook’s last name is Jeon, but why did you call the driver ‘brother-in-law’…? Sorry, I really want to understand what’s going on.”

Other netizen: “Because she’s Jeon Jungkook’s wife.”

Non-fan: “Thank you for your direct explanation. I understand now.”

If you’re lucky enough to run into a driver with the last name Jeon in Busan, this would be a great way to strike up a conversation, and who knows, maybe you’d get your ride for free, too!
