Ever since BTS announced that they would be taking a period to prioritize solo activities, ARMYs have been hopeful for Jin in that we would finally see “actor Jin” as he attended multiple movie premieres.
So, he surprised ARMYs when he revealed that he had started a new job at another company other than HYBE.
It’s none other than South Korean video game company Nexon!
I started working at a major company
It’s home to the popular MMORPG game MapleStory.
Welcome to MapleStory, the original side-scrolling MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) where epic adventure, action and good friends await you. With hundreds of hours of gameplay, this immersive role-playing experience will allow you to unleash your wild side as you create and train a mighty hero, conquer perilous dungeons, overcome terrifying bosses, socialize with you friends and much more.
Jin is actually one of MapleStory‘s biggest fans.
I went to 15 different convenience stores. I didn’t buy up all the stock [at each place] for the sake of those that come after me. I won’t have to worry about starving for the next three days. Wonky, please appear.
Like any true fan, Jin also collects lots of merchandise! He especially loves Pink Bean.
It’s safe in my account. I’m going to save it until I need it to buy things when I play MapleStory.
Jin was even given the opportunity to judge the Golden Hand Awards, MapleStory‘s first character design awards.
Now, MapleStory has revealed the resume that landed him his new role at Nexon! He is scheduled to start the job on August 16 officially.

— Translation for Jin’s Maplestory Resume
Of course, we know Jin’s resume would be as long as a CVS receipt if he included all his achievements.
He would need a few pages for all their awards/achievements. This is one HYBE made for its filing; it’s mostly BTS (it includes the other artists too) 😅😂 pic.twitter.com/ij63Mz8Y3l
