Most K-Pop fans can only dream of ever interacting with their favorite idols, whether it’s at a concert or through a fansign. Those experiences are hard enough but imagine being lucky enough to bump into them on the streets makes you the luckiest person in the world.
Well, it seems as if one lucky ARMY in Korea had this experience with none other than BTS‘s oldest member Jin.
Since coming back from America after finishing dates on their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LAS VEGAS shows, Jin seemed fairly quiet on social media.
Luckily, Jin has recently been treating ARMY to a lot of content, including updating fans on what he’s been doing, sharing his desire to go for a drink with J-Hope, and the recent pictures showcasing his healing hand.
On May 12, one lucky K-ARMY shared on Twitter that they’d been lucky enough to see Jin IRL while she was exercising. In the post, the ARMY was unsurprisingly very excited when they started recalling exactly what happened.
Twitterverse… I exercise at Hanam-dong and.. For the first time while living in Seoul, I finally ran into Kim Seokjin on the street. Of course, as soon as I saw him, I couldn’t breathe and I ran away to continue exercising like I didn’t see him…
Straight away, ARMYs praised the user for not making Jin feel uncomfortable during his time off and continuing as if nothing had happened. Yet, it did, and the ARMY had the perfect reaction after seeing the idol because it seemed like they were the luckiest person ever.
And I bought a lottery ticket as soon as I finished exercisingㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Of course, one thing that ARMY always want to know when people have seen the BTS members is their visuals. This user didn’t disappoint as they shared what it was really like seeing “Worldwide Handsome” in real life.
There’s no need to say how Kim Seokjin’s handsomeness was bursting even through his mask. It’s true that Kim Seokjin’s visuals are ridiculous in person!!!!!!
The ARMY couldn’t stop gushing about Jin’s visuals throughout the posts, and it isn’t hard to disagree with their description that Jin is “handsome.”
Even at the concerts, Kim Seokjin is truly ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He doesn’t have a human face it’s just so so so so so so handsome.. All that I can say is that he’s handsome…
The ARMY then shared in English some answers to questions they’d been getting from other fans. In another tweet, the ARMY shared some of the etiquettes about what to do if you meet a member and referred to BTS V’s Weverse post after the people in Hawaii were so kind to him.
Of course, when the story was shared, netizens couldn’t stop sharing their reactions to the ARMY’s experience of Jin. While most shared how jealous they were, others couldn’t stop praising the user for how they reacted.
As expected, ARMY continues to prove how much they love the BTS members by being so respectful towards them. Most people’s instinct would be to fangirl and rush towards the idol but this ARMY kept their cool and ensured Jin didn’t feel uncomfortable.
