Jin being praised for his impact

On the 19th of May, KBS releases the most recent episode of its Immortal Songs 2. Host Shin Dong Yup started the conversation with the composers. He said, ‘This song became extremely popular after Young Tak sung it in the final stage of a trot competition. I heard it was popular both domestically and internationally. I assume you already know (as the composer)?’ 

To this, the composers answered, ‘Young Tak performed this song at the MAMA Awards, and many international fans believed it was dedicated to BTS’ Jin because of the lyrics Jjin JJin JJin. The song even trended high on X's (Twitter) international trending chart.’ 

He continued, ‘The positive impact was so significant that it made me think trot music could break into the overseas Billboard charts! Additionally, Jin is said to listen to the song Jjiniya while showering, which makes me incredibly proud as the songwriter.’
