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.
