When the clip was shared, it was viewed almost 100,000 times. ARMYs couldn’t believe the influence of Jin, which meant that he was constantly surrounded by police to ensure his safety.
Yet, it isn’t just the concert that saw Jin have a huge amount of security. When news of Jin’s arrival in Argentina was announced, what seemed like thousands of ARMYs flocked to the airport to catch a glimpse of the BTS member.
The crowds were so huge that Jin even revealed that he took another entrance just to ensure the safety of ARMYs because it could’ve been dangerous.
I’ve arrived safely and well in Argentina.
I’m sorry to everyone who was at the airportㅠㅠ
Since there was so many people gathered, I was afraid you guys would get hurt
So I couldn’t exit through that way
I wanted to make sure to see you, I’m sorry.
Yet, others noticed that during his first day in Argentina, the idol’s security was the top priority. After choosing to go through a private entrance to keep ARMYs safe, many noticed that roads had been blocked off to allow Jin to leave.

With Jin scheduled to have more schedules in Argentina, including his performance with Coldplay, which they’re currently rehearsing for…
Plenty of fans will have their chance to see the idol. It is also reassuring to know that Jin’s safety is being prioritized.
