BTS’s Jin Beautifully Sings “I Love You” for Fans on His Birthday

BTS’s Jin turned 23 today, December 4, and left fans the ultimate gift! 

It’s not often you get to hear a group member’s voice for the entirety of a track sans solo debut, and Jin gifted everyone with just that on BTS’s official Soundcloud, with what can only be presumed as a song for fans, singing “I Love You,” originally by Mate.

The song highlights Jin’s beautiful voice, with harmonies and a simple piano accompaniment. 

Happy birthday, Jin!

Check out the cover below, as well as Jin’s message to ARMY:

Hello, this is Jin.

I’m posting a cover for the first time in a long time.

I had been thinking of posting a cover on a good day, and I’m really happy to be able to share my voice with everyone on my birthday.

I really wanted to share my voice on my birthday, and I’ve been preparing for a long time. It was difficult because the preparation was like for an album, but I wanted to relay how I felt with a great song on a happy day, so I worked really hard on this. 

I’d like very much if you enjoyed it.

This time, I covered a song called “I Love You,” and it’s a song I’ve liked a lot since my trainee days. It moved me a lot when I heard it for the first time, and when thinking about what song I would show you on my birthday, I thought what better song than this to tell ARMY how I feel.

I usually like saying “I like you” more, but at least for today, I want to say “I love you.”

If you felt through the song just how much I love ARMY, I’d really like that.

Thank you so much for always being there for us and liking us. I love you.
