BTS’s Jin wins military talent contest

BTS member Jin has reportedly won a military talent contest, securing himself and several other soldiers who performed with him a day of leave. Imagine having to go up against Jin in a talent contest.

According to SBS News, confirmation of Jin’s win was shared via an online bulletin board. The contest took place to coincide with the Lunar New Year. For the performance, Jin apparently taught his colleagues a dance routine, which impressed the judges enough to secure first place. Now they all get to have a day off from being in the army, which is nice.

Jin was the first member of BTS to enlist for his two year’s of mandatory military service in South Korea. He completed his five weeks of training earlier this month and, according to reports, will continue to serve his time at the training centre as a teaching assistant. Although, asked if this was correct, BTS label Big Hit would only say that the news was “difficult to confirm”.

Following the completion of his military training, Jin posted photos of himself in uniform on Weverse, telling fans: “I’m enjoying my life. I’m posting pictures after getting permission from the military”.
