When it comes to BTS‘s Jin, he might be one of the most handsome, talented, and sweetest idols ever, but he’s also the most relatable. Since debuting, ARMYs have loved watching Jin’s true personality shine as the idol showcases his charm and charisma, but also his comedic side.
Jin has once again showcased his charming personality but also just how iconic he actually is. The idol recently traveled to America for some private schedules.
Well, if ARMYs were waiting for an update from Jin, they didn’t have to wait long. September 12 marked leader RM’s birthday, but as he was on the other side of the world, Jin chose to celebrate it by doing a three-hour long live gaming broadcast.
Of course, the internet quickly went into meltdown, with some ARMYs crying that they’d missed it, others in shock at the longevity of the stream, and many just fangirling over how funny Jin was being.

In particular, Jin has always been known as an avid gamer and even became an intern for MapleStory. Well, during the live broadcast, many joked that Jin is definitely just like normal netizens when it comes to gaming.
During the live broadcast, many netizens couldn’t get over the fact that Jin seemed to be perfectly imitating the “5 stages of grief.” The stages normally go in order of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, which are normally in place when trying to process change or a new reality.

Well, it seems like Jin perfectly showcased all of those phases and one user on Twitter perfectly showcased it. The idol started with denial when he refused to believe that the game might not be going the way he wanted it to.
Of course, it was common knowledge that Jin got very frustrated throughout the stream, and his language seemed so extreme that people might have gotten the wrong idea!
Yet, his screams and anger are truly relatable for any gamer who has ever been stuck on a certain level or things aren’t going the right way.
Next is bargaining. When things weren’t going Jin’s way, he resorted to trying to plead with the characters and the game, adding, “Stop that, yes like that. Please move.”
The stage that came next was truly something everyone has been through, and it’s “depression.”
Although it isn’t a word that should be taken lightly, many expressed that Jin seemed to get to a point in the game where it all just wasn’t going his way, and he was ready to give up.
Finally, Jin accepted his fate that things maybe weren’t going the best by just saying that he was having fun. Although acceptance wasn’t until late into the stream as Jin seemingly couldn’t stop playing the game and kept trying to find a way to succeed.
When the clip was shared on social media, it had almost 250,000 views, and ARMYs couldn’t get over how they’d just watched Jin go through so many emotions in one live stream.
remember the last time jin went on a gaming live and he went through 5 stages of grief
