With lots of photos released of the upcoming album, ARMYs noticed several details. Here are 5+ you might not have seen before…

1. Song credits

While it was previously reported that “The Astronaut” is a song gifted by Coldplay, the song credits confirmed that Chris Martin, among his members, as well as his son Moses Martin, Norwegian DJ Kygo, and pop producer Max Martin are all credited.

Additionally, the late Golden Globe award-winning composer Jóhann Jóhannsson is listed as a producer.

Jin is also credited!

2. The lyrics

We got a sneak peek of the song with the release of the lyric sheet. It is so heartfelt and perfectly Jin!

3. Stickers

The stickers are inspired by those included with the popular Pokémon and MapleStory breads that Jin loves to collect.

4. Signature Jin Poses

Jin is famous for his iconic flying kiss. His little representative astronaut character Wootteo was spotted doing it too!

That’s not all, though. From his Squid Game-inspired pigtails to a peace sign, they are all there!

5. The Title

The album’s title is designed so that the “A” looks like the Roman numeral IX, equivalent to 9. The album is released during his 9th year as a member of BTS.

6. His signature

Jin’s photocards include signatures expressing his love for ARMY.
