The sea concept of @BTS_twt #Jin is a celebration of his passions and an opportunity to share them with ARMY.
Following the Special 8 Jungkook, Jimin, RM, and BTS group Photo-Folios, Me, Myself, and Jin ‘Sea of JIN island’ was announced by Weverse on November 15, 2022. We were presented with a teaser video featuring the sea and Jin as a pirate/naval officer. It should come as no surprise to ARMY that Jin chose the sea and ultimately a fishing concept as the backdrop for his Photo-Folio; after all, we have witnessed Jin’s deep love for both. The concept photos depicted a naval officer versus a pirate, a good guy versus a villain. Jin wanted to share a contradiction with ARMY that would be distinctly different from his previous soft, surrounded-by-flowers concepts.
Also, Jin wanted the pirate to appear rough and sea-worn while the naval officer was dressed in full military attire. To accent the difference between the two images, he had the stylist rough up the pirate’s Western-style costuming.
On Jin’s birthday, the Me, Myself, and Jin ‘Sea of JIN island’ making film was delivered as a gift to ARMY. In the film, Jin lamented having to get up at 4am for hair and makeup after only 3.5 hours of sleep to accommodate the photographer’s desire for a sunrise shoot. But in true debut BTS fashion, Jin caught a nap when and where he could between the days’ activities.
We also saw Jin picking the final photos for the Photo-Folio. He commented on the throwback style, especially of the naval officer. Jin said it gave him the “My grandpa was a hottie” vibe, and he is not wrong!
Additionally in the Photo-Folio, we got “Jin the fisherman”. Weverse shared a video about the making of the legendary Super Tuna choreography shot between BTS’ LA concerts. Here, we got a throwback to when Jin took Producer Bumzu for a day of deep-sea fishing and inspiration for his hit song, Super Tuna, and the dance that went with it.
Bumzu had caught the first fish of the day, but just as he was replaying the melody, Jin hooked a small bluefin tuna. A good omen in the form of tuna is not normally found in this part of the Yellow Sea. This gave Bumzu and Jin the motivation to finish the song.
During his Photo-Folio journey, we have watched Jin become the consummate professional, attending to all details of the Photo-Folio development, song production, choreography, and video shoot, including creating the dancer costumes for the Super Tuna video. We’re convinced that there is nothing he can’t do!
Stay tuned for our blogs on V, j-hope, and SUGA’s Photo-Folios to come!
