“I hope our fans don’t lose their laughter,” Jin said. “I’m not really good at saying those kinds of cheesy things. It’s not in my personality. I feel embarrassed and cringey when I talk like that, and I can’t take myself seriously, so I try to keep it to a minimum.

“But fans watch us as a hobby, you know? Hobbies are all about enjoying yourself and being able to laugh, so I want to look happy for them, not exhausted,” he continued. “I go out of my way to make funny posts or leave funny replies on Weverse to make them happier. I just hope anyone who likes me is happy.”
