An Introduction to Jin

Q: Wasn’t it hard for a student majoring in acting to practice [to be an idol]?

JIN: At first it was really hard but there were lots of kids who helped me and treated me really well. They helped me a lot and said things like "Try listening to this song.”, “Try doing it this way.” and so training became easier.
SUGA: He’s a hyung who had a considerable amount of interest in hip-hop [before becoming a trainee], so it wasn’t that hard.
