A clip of BTS‘s Jin performing a dance cover of a Stray Kids song has gone viral but left many fans confused.
Earlier this month, Stray Kids returned with “S-Class” and spent time promoting it on music shows. The group also shared dance challenge videos on TikTok, even changing up from their usual and recording with other idols outside of JYP Entertainment.
Though somewhat rare, BTS have performed dance challenges with other idols, like Jungkook performing “Super” with SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu…
Fans did get their wish fulfilled when a video of Jin covering the song was shared online, but there was one problem with this — Jin is currently serving out his mandatory enlistment.
A video shared by the TikTok account @realfantreon shows a clip of Stray Kids‘ Hyunjin with Jin’s face “AI-ed” onto his body, giving a scarily realistic look of what the BTS member would look like performing the song.

The account has other videos, though slightly less convincing, of the other members doing activities like giving sunscreen protection advice.
While many fans were simply surprised and confused at how good the video was…
…many expressed their dislike of using AI in such a manner.
AI usage has been debated often in K-Pop, which you can read more about below.
