Jin’s birthday

BTS member Jin recently turned 30 and celebrated his special day with none other than the Army themselves! Just before enlisting for his mandatory military service in South Korea, the eldest member of the Septet treated fans with a short but sweet live session on Weverse’s community page. To double up the surprise, Jin’s fellow group member Jimin also joined him.

The live video began with Jin talking about his fellow group member and close friend Jungkook. He also complained jokingly that JK didn’t visit him on his birthday while he did the same earlier. The BTS singer who recently made his solo debut with ‘The Astronaut’, went on to cut his birthday cake. He also urged everyone watching his live video, including his crew, staff, and the Army, to sing the happy birthday song as he cuts the cake. Jin jokingly revealed that the candle flames scare him as they look like horns!
