BTS’s Jin is experiencing huge popularity in Japan

Published on June 30, 2021

Jin’s huge popularity in Japan has been proved once again and gained the attention of K-media. Recently, his exclusive interview for Rolling Stone magazine became the most viewed article on the Rolling Stone Japan website.

Previously Jin also proved himself as a popular music artist with his solo song “Moon,” achieving huge success on Japanese charts. It became the highest-charting BTS solo song from the MOTS7 album on the real-time chart of the largest music platform in Japan – “Line.” “Moon” also became the 3rd highest-charting BTS solo song of all time in the Line Music KPOP 2020 Top100.

Jin became a composer, lyricist, and vocalist that set the record with the 2nd highest BTS solo song debut on Billboard Hot100 Japan. All of it was achieved with a b-side track from the full-length album.

Another factor that proves that Jin is especially popular in Japan for his vocals and music is him being the 1st K-idol to receive a standing ovation by the Japanese public. More than that, he did it twice!

Worth mentioning that after every promotional live performance of BTS on Japanese TVJin goes viral among non-fans and gets lots of compliments for his outstandingly strong voice.
