Jin, one of BTS‘s biggest mood makers, is rarely seen without a smile. Recently though, he struggled to hold back tears during a live stream.
On March 19, Jin chatted with ARMY while holding an impromptu “Eat Jin” session.
Throughout the broadcast, Jin tried to be his cheerful, upbeat self…
…but fans could see he was struggling.
Toward the end of the live, Jin revealed that Odeng, his beloved sugar glider, has passed away.
While talking about Odeng, Jin struggled to speak and was on the verge of crying.
It’s clear that Odeng was loved deeply…
…and will be greatly missed.
Ever since Jin went live, ARMY has been sending him love and support through the trending hashtag “#WeLoveYouJin.
Dear Kim Seokjin we are a family and we will have bad days as well as good days in our lives. It‘s ok to feel sad. It‘s ok to feel down sometimes.
So we, armys are glad that you chose to share your feelings & thoughts with us today.
Thank you for trusting us.#WeLoveYouJin
