Meet The Worldwide Handsome: Who is Jin of BTS?


Oozing with handsomeness and confidence, who wouldn’t know Jin, right?

Jin, whose full name is Kim Seokjin, is one of the seven-member group of BTS. He was born on December 4, 1992, and he grew up in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province. Based on reports, Jin came from a well-off, visually appealing, and tight-knit family. However, anyone hardly managed to unveil the truth about his family, so any news related to Jin’s family remain unverified. But one thing is for sure — Jin is the eldest member of BTS, making him a paternal figure to the group.

While his looks – broad shoulders and small face – brought him to be a part of BTS, his shyness, talent, and humor took him to where he is right now.

How did Jin start as a BTS member?

SM Entertainment initially scouted him while he was on the street of South Korea. At first, he thought that the offer was a scam or a prank, so he did not follow up with the company. Then, another big company scouted him – the Big Hit Entertainment – during his college years. A scout saw Jin while he was leaving a bus and convinced him to audition for the company.

Since Jin is a theater major, and he has no experience when it comes to singing or dancing, he auditioned as an actor. But Big Hit Entertainment urged him to take another path and train for the K-Pop music group BTS. The training was a massive shock for Jin. But because of his easy-going nature, he turned into a singer and dancer without a fuss.

7 Interesting Facts about Jin

  1. Take note, girls! Jin prefers a woman who has a puppy-face and puppy-like personality. He also added that a woman who has excellent cooking skills is a plus since he has a huge appetite. There’s more! Jin wants someone who is younger but can take care of him well.

  2. Jin is the king of lame or dad jokes. Since dad jokes rely on wordplay and puns, lots of his jokes get lost in translation, so it’s turning out to be lame. For example, “What did the dog say to the wall?” “Wol-wol”

  3. He plays different instruments like a pro. Although BTS sings and dances on stage, you may see Jin playing the guitar, piano, pipe, and ukulele sometimes. His expertise in playing these instruments say how multi-talented Jin is.

  4. Aside from performing, Jin is a master of cooking as well. He loves experimenting and coming up with new recipes, which he shares on his blog. He had tried making noodles, loaves of bread, and pastries, and each recipe seemed distinct.

  5. Jin has a *freakishly* dexterous toes! On several reality shows, he has shown the audience his ability to take off his socks or open bags of sweets without using his hands. 

  6. He has crooked fingers, which is a result of a reduced amount of collagen in his molecule’s structure. There is no cure for his condition, but he has been undergoing treatment to stabilize is joints.

  7. Aside from blurting out hilarious dad jokes, Jin laughs like a windshield wiper. So the next time you use your windshield wiper, imagine that Jin is laughing his heart out in front of you.
