JIN, one of boy band BTS’s seven members, celebrates another year of life as the international pop star’s career continues to reach new heights in South Korea and the US.
The K-pop singer joined BTS in June 2013 after deciding to pursue a singing career instead of becoming an actor – since then, he’s found massive success.

Born Kim Seok-jin, Jin is a singer-songwriter who’s one of seven members in the popular South Korean boy band.
He was scouted for BTS by Korean entertainment group Big Hit Entertainment Co. as a college student.
He made his debut as one of the boy band’s first four vocalists on their debut album, 2 Cool 4 Skool, in June 2013.
At the time, he had no singing experience and had auditioned for the company as an actor before becoming a Korean idol trainee.
Jin has co-written and released three solo tracks with BTS: Awake in 2016, Epiphany in 2018, and Moon in 2020.
He released his first independent song, Tonight, in 2019.
