BTS’ Jin appeared on the YouTube show My Alcohol Diary as the last guest and had a blast with the host Lee Young Ji.

Looking nervous at first, saying that this was his first time shooting non-BTS content in five years, Jin challenged 58% Chinese alcohol from the start. Jin, well-known for his love for drinks, kept his relaxed attitude, and Lee Young Ji kept her tempo up, continuing the hyper-vibe on the set.

“I’m a bit socially deprived,” Jin shared. “I’ve been a trainee since I was 19 and since then, I haven’t had any friends. If you look at the contact on my phone, I have less than 10 celebrity friends.” He then went on, “Most people don’t want to be friends with us because they feel pressured. Because of this work, my social relationship became a disaster.”

The singer also talked about his solo song “Super Tuna.” Jin commented, “It was a song I made to go out with Bumzu. I wanted to be closer to him as a friend. It took me like 10 or 20 minutes to make.” He added, “80% of the lyrics are just part of the daily conversation. It didn’t even take a day for me to record ‘Super Tuna.’ I think it only took like two hours.”

Near the end of the video, Jin opened up about more honest, sincere stories. When Lee Young Ji thanked the artist for his contribution to the enhancement of Korean culture, Jin replied, “I didn’t do it; our members did it.”

“I think that once people have an interest in you, you are bound to lose something,” he shared, bringing up the light and shadow that comes with popularity. “Because if I show a lot of myself because people want to see me, I’ll be showing aspects they like but also the aspects they don’t like.” He continued, “I don’t want to show the negative side of me as much as possible. I want to show the aspects of me that fans like. For example, I don’t want them to see me using bad words in TV shows. I don’t show the aspects of myself that fans may not like.”

Jin then moved on to talking about the secret to BTS’ success. “One of the reasons why we are successful is that the members willingly give up what they want for one another,” the singer said. “It’s hard to maintain a team if there’s a person who wants to do whatever he wants because he thinks he’s made it big. But we never cross the line and be considerate of each other.”

Meanwhile, Jin will serve his mandatory military duty soon. But before his enlistment, he’ll drop his solo single, The Astronaut, on which he collaborated with Coldplay on the 28th.
