Jin and Coldplay’s collaboration
BIGHIT Music recently released a statement about Jin’s new collaboration with Coldplay and called it ‘a gift or the fans.’ In a recent interview, here is what Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said, “I don’t think we’ll ever be able to match the BTS surprise. That was surprising even for us. The journey from the first time it was mentioned — I was just like, ‘How could that ever work?’ — to the song itself arriving and me thinking, ‘That could be for BTS’ — to now it feeling like the most natural collaboration in the world. It’s an amazing lesson for myself in keeping an open mind all the time, because you just never know what life or music is gonna throw you.

Once BTS member Jin has completed his committed roll-outs, including his single solo release, the singer will be off to serve South Korea’s military for at least 18 months. Here is what the official label said about his enlistment, “Jin will initiate the process as soon as his schedule for his solo release is concluded at the end of October. He will then follow the enlistment procedure of the Korean government. Other members of the group plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.”
