3. When Jin bragged about his handsomeness
One time, Bang Si Hyuk shared a screenshot of his conversation with Jin. In it, he asked if BTS was having fun at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Jin said, “Because I’m handsome, it’s really fun.”
Bang Si Hyuk: Are you guys having fun?
Jin: Because I’m handsome, it’s really fun.
Bang Si Hyuk: Then if I went along, it probably wouldn’t be as interesting. Fortunately, I decided to stay at home and edit the MV. Okay, now, focus on the stage.
Jin: In fact, I did it for fun. We will return after we succeed.
