ARMYs are speculating that the person in question is Taylor Swift.
There are a couple of music artists that Jin has openly admired and expressed that he is a fan of, Coldplay and Taylor Swift.
OMG? What do i do with this information …. it seems Chris knows that Seokjin is a fanboy, he heard that Worldwide handsome Jin, member of BTS had talked about Coldplay before they started working on collab @coldplay on @ElvisDuranShow today#방탄소년단진 #JIN #BTSJIN @bts_twt pic.twitter.com/h8QOGCeQi7

Jin collaborated with Coldplay along with the rest of BTS for “My Universe” and has formed a great friendship with lead singer Chris Martin already.
So, ARMYs are speculating that Jin might be referring to Taylor Swift, knowing how much he admires the singer-songwriter.

In an interview with PAPER Magazine, Jin revealed that “ME!” by Taylor Swift, featuring Panic! At The Disco‘s Brendon Urie, was his favorite song at the time. He even said he wants to try making that kind of energetic song too.
Sure enough, “ME!” and many more Taylor Swift songs had been in Jin’s Spotify playlist. Even when he updates it, there is to be a Taylor Swift song in there.
The feeling is mutual too. Taylor herself replied that she loves BTS when fans shared that Jin had added her songs to his playlist.
And in an interview with the Recording Academy, Taylor Swift was mentioned by BTS as an artist they would like to collaborate with.
Besides, BTS have all met Taylor Swift at The 2018 Billboard Music Awards. So, there’s already a connection there.

If this all wasn’t enough, Taylor recently revealed to be releasing her own new music with the Midnights album. Following its release on October 21, there will be a “special very chaotic surprise.”
Taylor adding fuel to our Jin x Taylor collab theory this is not healthy for me. Kim Seokjin and Taylor Swift will be the end of me I can assure you. (I know this is probably the tour announcement but let me be delulu just for a moment 😭😭) #TSmidnightsTS #MeetMeAtMidnight pic.twitter.com/k7dDosRxLO
