Fans have noticed BTS Jin‘s impressive new role in his recent military pictures.
On January 6, the military officially uploaded more pictures of Jin undergoing training. These types of pictures are shared for all trainees, and as Jin enlisted as an ordinary citizen as he wished, the military is treating him equally and sharing his updates just like any other trainee.
In one picture showing Jin having undergone the infamous Hwasaengbang training, detective fans noticed Jin’s name tag.
Although the lighting and distance from the badge make it too difficult to make out the end of the name tag confidently, the beginning of Jin’s name tag dubs him “company commander” (중대장).
Upon spotting the name tag, fans felt proud of Jin as the company commander indicates he is the leader of his training group. It is possible that Jin applied for the position or was recommended for being a good example during training. His new role also means that the idol will have a higher chance of being awarded at the trainee’s graduation.
Op: Seokjin's badge says 'company commander's trainee', meaning he is the leader of his group.
He could've applied for it or most likely was recommended by others as a good example. In whichever the case is he'll have a higher chance of getting awarded at training graduation!!! https://t.co/2FNPfkWvzN

Fans aren’t surprised at Jin’s impressive new role since the idol has always been passionate and hard-working, but they are certainly proud of the skilled idol.
To say I’m proud is an understatement! Seokjin works so hard with everything he does. Being in the military is no exception! I knew Seokjin would excel like the shining star that he is
