BTS‘s Jin finally made his long-awaited solo debut with “The Astronaut” and the touching lyrics, cinematic music video, and smooth vocals from Jin proved it was well worth the wait.
As the music video debuted, a separate video was also released where Jin gave some background information about the music video’s deeper meaning.
I expressed how I feel about ARMY, who made me who I am as the Jin of BTS. The lyrics are also about me, who flows aimlessly, and you, who find my ARMY.
ARMYs definitely felt the love and appreciation from Jin during the emotional music video.
Here are 12 ARMY reactions to the music video that were too real.

8. Realizing the deeper meaning the girl represents
SOMEONE SAID THE LITTLE GIRL COULD REPRESENT NOT ONLY ARMYS BUT BTS TOO, SINCE SEOKJIN IS THE OLDEST HYUNG AND PRACTICALLY HE RAISED ALL OF THEM, AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HE'LL BE AWAY FROM THEM, SO HE WANTS REASSURE BOTH BTS AND ARMYS HE WILL BE OKAY, I'M CRYING :(((

In the beginning, the astronaut landed on earth. Then, after some time, his home planet was ready to transport him back home, but he chose to stay. Earth is where his loved ones are.
I'M CRYING RIGHT NOW-
