International fans who won’t have the privilege of attending the exclusive BTS anniversary event boasting Jin’s epic comeback voiced their heartbroken pleas on X/Twitter soon after the official announcements hit social media. While some emotionally recalled RM’s words about how Jin would “fulfil the space,” other international fans melted into a proverbial puddle of tears at the thought of not being able to meet their favourite star, who never fails at making their hearts soar on Cloud 9.

A fan commented, “I need extra strength on that day. I’m not their strongest soldier.” A similar response came from another BTS ARMY, who wrote, “SK armys getting hugs from seokjin and an event for festa…intl armys always taking an L.” A third exclaimed, “I will be so happy for seokjin and the lucky armys, but I will be also crying in the corner..😅😢😂😭”

In addition to the extra special event starring Jin as the main character, BIGHIT MUSIC also announced details for a ‘Ground Event’ to be held in the area encompassing Futsal Field and Sports Park within Seoul Sports Complex. Here, ARMY Membership holders have a chance to win a designated souvenir at the ARMY ZONE on June 13.
