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 TV, Jin goes viral among non-fans and gets lots of compliments for his outstandingly strong voice.
