Jin, whose real name is Kim Seok-jin, is a dynamic member of the South Korean boy band BTS. The 29-year-old musician frequently greets fans with a flying kiss and the phrase “global handsome.” This is not to be confused with his extreme vanity; rather, it is his method of brightening the mood. Jin, who appears on the cover of Vogue Singapore’s January 2022 edition alongside his fellow BTS bandmates, explained where the term “global gorgeous” came from.
“There are plenty of individuals who are more handsome than me,” the singer told Vogue Singapore. “‘Worldwide Handsome’ is a joke I like to tell when I want to make people laugh.” Jin went on to say that while there are many individuals who can sing and dance better than him, he just strives to be a better version of himself, which others seem to see in him.
One of the traits that keeps him going as one of the world’s top performers is his ability to have fun, according to the singer. “I believe that having fun is one of the things that allows me to work without becoming burnt out,” Jin told the outlet. Jin admitted that he does not frequently engage in serious discussions “because it’s no fun.”
He also says that whether he’s being interviewed or just conversing with his buddies, he’s constantly seeking to lighten the atmosphere. The artist stated that his primary function is that of a vocalist, although the lines between his many projects are unclear. Jin does a wide range of projects, including stage performances, photoshoots, and content shoots. He also states that he takes his work seriously until the limits of his labour are defined. “I can’t tell you when I’m being serious or not.” “I spend 80 to 90 percent of my time kidding about, except when I’m on stage,” Jin stated.
