Princess Diana Jeon Jungkook Reincarnation Theory is a fan theory that suggests Princess Diana, who died on August 31st, 1997, was reincarnated as K-pop singer Jeon Jungkook, born on September 1st that year. Launched by Twitter user @blkbangtan, the conspiracy theory gained major virality within the BTS fandom, spawning jokes, memes and discussions throughout 2022, particularly around Queen Elizabeth II's death in September that year.


On April 11th, 2022, Twitter[1] user @blkerbangtan made a thread in which they shared their theory that Princess Diana, who died on August 31st, 1997, was reincarnated as South Korean K-pop singer Jeon Jungkook, born on September 1st, 1997. In the thread, @blkerbangtan brought up similar personality traits in the two as supporting evidence for the theory (original post no longer available, thread shown below).

In any other fandom this would come off as tongue in cheek and kinda funny.

But I have zero doubt that K-pop stans take this shit deadly serious. I don't know why they always have to be so damn creepy.
