Initially, Jin disclosed how he is nervous whenever attending solo guesting, as he is used to being with the other six members every time. He also explained how he avoids eye contact when drinking or talking to others he has just met.

However, with the rapper’s fun personality and assurance that the show was a safe space and that Jin could be free to be himself, Jin could blend immediately.

Escalating the conversation, what shocked the viewers and the “No Prepare” host was when Jin candidly confessed that he had been “socially-deprived” since he was 19 years old.

“I started my trainee life when I was 19. I don’t have any friends. If you look at the contact list on my phone, I have less than 10 celebrity friends. Most people don’t want to be friends with us because they feel pressured.”

The Worldwide Handsome continued:

“Because of this work, my social relationship became a disaster. It’s totally broken.”

Jin also expressed how he wanted to play a drinking game but was stopped by the company from drinking since his trainee days.

Nevertheless, the rapper broke the rule as she and Jin played a drinking game to unleash thrill.

Captivating the fans even more, when Lee Young Ji gratified Jin for contributing to the progress of South Korean culture, the singer responded that the success resonated as a group. Hence, the spotlight should not be on him.

Wholesomely, Jin said that he is not afraid to show “aspects people won’t like.”

“I don’t want to show the negative side of me. As an otaku who really loves to play games. I’m also infused with that feeling so I have a mindset that I want to only show the aspects of me that fans like.”


Mental health-related struggles sit in the realm of most stigmatized and highly-marginalized discussions in South Korea.

Due to the immense spotlight on K-pop idols’ personal lives, extreme pressure, and compliance with society’s standards throughout their pre-debut days, until they reach the climax of stardom, they are also vulnerable to mental health-related issues.

As evident in their album chronology – Love Yourself, the worldwide icon extended this advocacy to an international level when they joined forces with UNICEF to champion initiatives against violence and promote self-esteem.
