BTS’ Jin recently got discharged from his mandatory military service. Following that, he held an in-person hug event for the fans, celebrating the group’s 11th debut anniversary. With his charming performance at the FESTA 2024 event, he quickly became a trending topic again on social media platforms, and so did his solo songs.

On June 18, Billboard Charts confirmed that Jin’s Super Tuna has re-climbed the World Digital Song Sales Chart, claiming the No. 1 spot on it.

In a later interview, he said that all he wanted to do was go to the beach with a rough composition in mind, and that’s how the performance video for Super Tuna was created. He further added that he wanted to make a song about fishing and that’s when this trot song came to mind. However, to Jin, Super Tuna is still as ‘embarrassing’ as it could get.

On multiple occasions, the singer mentioned how this song is the opposite of the high-quality music BTS puts out. So he felt a little ‘awkward’ about the song going viral. He wanted it to be solely known to the ARMY community.

Nonetheless, Jin’s playful and energetic vibe always makes any song a hit.
