BTS Jin Reveals Reason for Shedding Tears at Discharge Ceremony: “We Promised Not to Cry”‘

BTS member Jin has opened up about the heartfelt reason behind his tears during his discharge ceremony.

On the afternoon of the 13th, Jin participated in the fan event ‘Seokjin on June 13, 2024, Weather: Clear’ held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Songpa-gu, Seoul, alongside other BTS members (RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook).

Reflecting on his emotional discharge ceremony on the 12th, Jin shared, “We had promised not to shed tears on the day of our discharge, but seeing my fellow soldiers cry made me emotional too. I was particularly looking forward to one friend who joked about clinging to my legs on my discharge day, but it didn’t happen, which was a bit disappointing.”

Jin also reminisced about his military days, expressing, “During my time away, I often wondered how everyone was doing. I had a great time bonding with many younger friends during my service. Now, as new recruits join at my age, I joke with them, asking, ‘Hey, what year were you born?'”

Having completed his mandatory military service as a sergeant at the 5th Infantry Division in Yeoncheon-gun, Gyeonggi Province, Jin‘s discharge marked a significant milestone.

BTS members RM, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, except Suga who is currently serving in public service, visited the 5th Infantry Division to celebrate Jin’s return, making him the first member of the group to complete military service.
