Fantagio

With a smile that could light up the world and a sense of humour that is hardly comparable, JinJin is an underrated diamond of a person who deserves a lot more love and affection than he already gets from the millions of AROHA who adore him endlessly. ASTRO's JinJin is a rapper, singer, dancer, composer and a model and it is indeed important to note that he is exceptional in all of these feats. At the same time, he's also the leader of ASTRO. AROHA would know what a chaotic bunch the ASTRO members are and to keep them together requires an intensity of patience, intensity and above all, love unlike any other.

JinJin has collaborated with Eric Nam on multiple occasions and it was only a matter of time before we saw a deeper partnership between them. In March 2021, JinJin started co-hosting the DIVE Studios podcast "Unboxing" alongside PENTAGON's Kino and needless to say, it was an instant hit. AROHA and UNIVERSE could not get enough of this amazing on-screen pair, making us wish for more than an episode a week.

Here are out top 5 moments from "Unboxing W/ JinJin and Kino" that live in our heads rent free!

 

1. Every time JinJin does the starting jingle

DIVE Studios has a number of extremely popular podcasts under its belt and each one has its own unique starting jingle or introduction that prefaces every episode. "Unboxing" begins with JinJin saying, "You have a parcel" in Korean followed by the name of the podcast and its hosts. However, fans unanimously agree that the beginning is one of the most soothing and addictive parts of the episode.

 

2. The way JinJin takes care of his little brothers

"Unboxing" features a number of incredibly exciting guests every episode. One of the most popular episodes till date has been episode 6, titled, "WOODZ: Everybody’s Friend! Honest and Fun Talks with Best Friend WOODZ!" Indeed WOODZ has an adorably loveable personality but when coupled with Kino, both of them are a chaotic duo to say the least. However, an alternate title for the video could very well have been, "JinJin babysitting his little brothers for 45 minutes straight". We love to see JinJin being so warm and affectionate with his dongsaengs, even at the cost of his own sanity. He has an inherent quality of making those around him feel not only comfortable but also welcome, which allows them to open up to him as if they're just having a friendly conversation at home.

 

3. When JinJin was a total fanboy for PEAKBOY

On episode 9 of "Unboxing" titled "Became a Fan the Moment We Met! See the Charms of PEAKBOY and DAVII!", JinJin could not help but be giggly and adorable around the day's guests, PEAKBOY and Davi. Their chemistry was so natural that it left us wishing for a collaboration between JinJin and PEAKBOY. As a matter of fact, sonically too, PEAKBOY's deep voice would go perfectly with JinJin's husky vocal tone, creating an inimitable blend.

 

4. When JinJin kept teasing I.M playfully

JinJin and Kino have an unbelievable rapport together and it shows, even more, when they have guests over. When the shy and introverted I.M from MONSTA X appeared on episode 7 of "Unboxing", titled, "A Handsome Cat That Smells Like Roses?! I.M is Here! God Damn!!", it was but obvious that our beloved hosts would be teasing him right out of his comfort zone and giving us the best episode ever!

 

5. When JinJin opened up about himself

In episode 8 of "Unboxing", aptly titled, "If We're Together, I'm All Good! Want to Go on a Drive? Decide Now, DO or NOT?!", JinJin gave us a glimpse of Park JinWoo (his real name) as a person, his family, upbringing and all the hurdles they could overcome only because they stuck by each other. JinJin is someone who cares a lot more about others than himself. He's kindness personified and always allows others to take precedence and importance before him. So it was especially heartwarming to see him open up for once and talk about himself, the person he is and the artist he has become.

AROHA could not be more proud of JinJin for everything he is, he was and he will become and we can't wait to share even more of these beautiful moments with him happily ever after.

Demonios, sí. Jinjin es alguien tan gentil, siempre cálido y reconfortante que enamora y hace sentir cómodos a los que están a su alrededor. Y es cierto en "diamante subestimado" NECESITAMOS a Jinjin es más proyectos personales. AROHA lo ama.
