BIGHIT MUSIC released new preview photos for Jin’s latest Photo-Folio called ‘Sea of Jin Island’ showing his love for fishing. Read ahead to know more.
On November 16th and 17th, member Jin's 'Special 8 Photo-Folio' (hereinafter referred to as 'Special 8 Photo') concept film and preview images were released through BTS' official social media handles. The video and photos show various scenes of Jin shooting a pictorial against the background of the sea. The special 8 photo-folio 'Sea of JIN island', which started with Jin's idea, expressed various emotions that can be felt in the sea with three concepts. While Jin appears as a proud and handsome captain on the sea, in the pirate concept, he expresses the fearful and lonely feelings of a stranger who is unfamiliar with the port. From here to the appearance of a brave fisherman whose life is the sea, this pictorial featuring Jin's unique charms creates a unique atmosphere with Jin's well-groomed visuals and the rough texture of the ship.
'Sea of JIN island' also includes pictures of tuna fishing during filming and behind the scenes of 'Super Tuna'. 'Super Tuna' is a song improvised by Jin, whose hobby is fishing. It is rumored that it was created while he set the theme of the pictorial as the sea and accompanied producer Bumbang to go fishing and make a song.
Meanwhile, 'Sea of JIN island' will be released on December 2nd. Jin is a South Korean singer, songwriter, and member of the South Korean boy band BTS. Kim has co-written and released three solo tracks with BTS: ‘Awake’ in 2016, ‘Epiphany’ in 2018, and ‘Moon’ in 2020, all of which have charted on South Korea's Gaon Digital Chart.
