BTS Jin recently drew attention with his honest thoughts and feelings in a new interview.
On the edition of Weverse Magazine released on June 14th, BTS Jin recalled his story with BTS in an interview following the group’s latest album “Proof”.
First, the male idol expressed his overwhelming feelings about meeting fans in person after 2 years, saying, “I was so emotional“
Regarding the trust that has been maintained among the members for a long time, Jin shared, “They’re all very ambitious, but I think you could say they’re not that ambitious at the same time. They are extremely ambitious collectively as the group, but they set aside their personal ambitions sometimes, believing that the group comes first. I’m more fascinated than thankful about how this is even possible, but still, everyone puts the group first. I’m grateful for the very fact that they’ve all made certain personal sacrifices to better fit with the group’s needs.”
When asked about the intention behind “Yours”, his OST for the K-drama “Jirisan”, the male idol said, “The group was spending less time performing at the time and I figured ARMY would like it if they had a new song to listen to at that point. It would have been a little bit random to just release a song out of nowhere, but I was recommended a good project so I took it.”
Jin also compared his experience to that of a character inside a game, saying, “A lot of times game characters will have their own jobs and stats. But even if there’s frequent patches for the whole game, I would hate it if my character’s the only one whose stats don’t get buffed and stay the same when all the other characters get upgrades. So that’s how I think about what I need to do and then get to work on it.”
According to the idol, the satisfaction of ARMY (fandom of BTS) is one of his major driving forces when producing new content. “Just like I feel happy when I play games, ARMY feels happy being our fans. And they do that while listening to our music and enjoying our new content. I tried thinking of ARMY as the user. That led me to want to keep them satisfied,” he expressed.
Regarding his song “Super Tuna”, Jin shared the track was never planned out, and he just wanted to try going fishing with music producer BUMZU and ended up making a song while at it. Meanwhile, “Abyss” was made when Jin wanted to indirectly express that he was having a hard time.
In the interview, Jin also revealed the behind-the-scenes of recording for “Epiphany (Jin Demo Ver.)” released in the album “Proof”.
