In 2016 MMA, BTS’s Jin received a water bottle from a staff. Next, what did he do? As he was well known as a gentle man, he passed it first to the girl behind him, who is SoWon of GFRIEND. You can see how sweet and kind Jin was here. Always he cares about another first, rather than doing for himself.
More than just getting attention for his kindness, this video clip succeeded to created a new couple. Why was it SoWon? He could pass it to others but he selected her. Here’s the point: Jin cares much about SoWon!
To fans who had kept an eye on them, this is not a surprise. Because even before this MMA situation, there had been a lot of scene where Jin and SoWon seemed to glance each other secretly. While waiting for next stage, SoWon couldn’t look off Jin.
Oh, you don’t believe this couple story because it looks like a one-way love of SoWon? Unfortunately, Jin also kept his eyes on SoWon while she’s talking in public. You can see that scene, below.

What they will come up with and release is still yet to be seen, but given their reputations as artists, we can definitely expect a club banger soon.
The first-week album sales of “Love Yourself”, the new album of BTS, has grown twice as high as that of the last album “You Never Walk Alone.” The first-week album sales of the previous album were about 373,000 and the sales for this comeback was recorded as 759,000. Just another fact check that the group is an “Icon of Record Breaker” and that they are growing as rapidly as ever.
It’s quite rare for a group to start so low and grow this huge. Most idol groups who have succeeded this much started at some point high, having a strong entertainment supporting them or having a reputation even before the debut. However, BTS is one extra-special precedent who shows talent and hard work can get you through the way up high.
If an idol or a group reach a certain point of their career, fans worry of idols taking a wrongful path by sudden fame and money flooding in. However, fans of BTS don’t seem to be concerned but to have a strong belief of every member.
Fans believe that though the graphs are growing drastically, the groups won’t change drastically, but continue their work humbly.
