Watch: BTS’s Jin Drops Trot Song “Super Tuna” In Celebration Of His Birthday
On the evening of December 4 KST, Jin shared a song called “Super Tuna” on BTS’s official YouTube channel and blog. Jin co-produced the song with BUMZU, who also provided the synthesizer and background vocals. The guitar was provided by Park Gi Tae of PRISMFILTER. The mix and mastering engineer was Anchor at PRISMFILTER MIX LAB and the recording engineer was Son Yoo Jung at HYBE Studio.
“Super Tuna” is a trot song, a genre of Korean pop music known for its distinctive singing style with vocal inflections that was particularly popular in the 1960s and 70s. The genre has recently seen a resurgence in South Korea with the popularity of TV Chosun’s “Miss Trot” and “Mister Trot” series.
The “album photo” for “Super Tuna” also mimics the bright graphics and over-the-top design of older trot albums, along with a photo of Jin fishing, which is one of his hobbies. Jin also shared a fun choreography video of “Super Tuna” for fans!
