ARMYs are still processing their emotions after the first BTS member, the group’s eldest hyung Jin, began his military service.
While fans are feeling a mix of emotions, Jin’s fellow BTS members are as well, which was documented in the group’s newly released Bangtan Bomb.
The BTS members each joined BIGHIT MUSIC (formerly known as BigHit Entertainment) between 2010-2012, forming a 10+ year brotherhood as they tackled the trials and tribulations of debuting under a small company and forged a new path for K-Pop artists as they rose to become international superstars.
Their unique experience has been isolating and stressful at times for the members, as they’ve described in interviews and their lyrics, but it also has many rewarding moments. At the end of the day, the only people who could fully understand the unprecedented circumstances and success the members have experienced are each other.
This shared experience has forged a family-like bond between the members, which is evident in their thoughtful and loving actions toward one another.
For Jin’s military entrance ceremony, the members all rallied to see their hyung off, with BTS’s V even flying back to Korea from his international schedule not to miss the ceremony.
The members doted on Jin and showed their brotherly affection in the final moments together before his enlistment. They even ignored Jin’s suggestion that they wait in the car due to the cold weather, braving the chilly temperatures to savor every moment with him.
The members took group photos together at the training center before taking time for each member to pose for their own special photo with Jin.
The Bangtan Bomb video showed the behind-the-scenes making of the photos, and netizens amusingly noticed that each member’s pose with Jin reflected their family dynamic.
Each BTS member has at least one sibling, and their poses hilariously reflect their role among their siblings.
1. Has an older sister
BTS’s J-Hope is the only member with an older sister, and the two share a very close bond. J-Hope’s tight hug in his photo with Jin was peak “younger brother” behavior.
2. Has an older brother
Jin, Jungkook, and Suga all have older brothers. With Jin, they hilariously posed like a younger sibling told to stand still for a pic with their older brother. We know from the Bangtan Bomb video that a “staged photo” was far from the case, as the members were just overcome with emotion and wanted to stay strong.
3. Has a younger sister
BTS’s V has a younger brother and a younger sister, and RM has a younger sister, and the two are fiercely protective of their younger siblings. Although they’re both dongsaengs to Jin, RM and V tilted their heads toward him with the affection of a protective, loving, and stoic older brother.
4. Has a younger brother
Along with V, BTS’s Jimin also has a younger brother! A photo between Jimin, V, and Jin was an adorable mix of a doting older brother and a cute younger brother as they made faces and took multiple pictures together.
The OP (original poster), who pointed out the family dynamics, shared that they take photos with their oppa in the same way, and netizens couldn’t agree more, finding BTS’s poses relatable and endearing.
