Although most of Jin’s activities in the army base are private, his division recently released the idol’s first meal after enlisting.

The military always announces the meal schedule for those enlisting to reassure family and friends know they’re eating well. Due to Jin’s popularity, StarNewsKorea released an article with an image showing what those that had enlisted would have as their first meal.

The image explains that the meal consisted of chicken gomtang (soup), stir-fried pork, boiled egg potato taffy, and cabbage kimchi. The image then showed that along with having dessert, Jin also had a choice of milk or green grape juice.

Although it is common for divisions to release information on the meals they serve to those who have enlisted, the outlet pointed out that due to the global popularity of Jin, the menu was released in both English and Korean.

Of course, it isn’t surprising that it quickly became a hot topic and netizens were even replicating the dishes that the idol might be having on social media.

One Korean netizen gained the attention of global fans for her representation of a dish.

In the comments, ARMYs shared how comforting it was to know that the idol was eating well, also adding their hopes that they were aware of Jin’s allergies to potatoes and garlic.

Of course, it will be hard to get updates from Jin during his training period but it’s reassuring that the idol will be eating properly and that there will be some updates from the training base.
