Jin, a member of the group BTS (BTS), released his solo song "Abyss" to celebrate his birthday today (4th).

Jin released a solo song "Abyss" on Thursday afternoon, posting a lengthy post on his blog. Jin explained that "Abyss" was completed by writing a story that he wanted to make his current feelings a track on the spot.

Jin said, "A few days ago, I talked about this during a press conference. 'I don't want to share my sad feelings with my fans. Because I want to show only good things. But if it's music, the story is different. I don't usually want to share it with my actions, but I think it's okay to show it to you in music.'

Jin confessed, "In fact, I recently had a big burnout, and I think it was because I had a lot of thoughts about myself."

"I received congratulations from many people after winning the Billboard Hot 100th place, and I thought 'Can I receive this kind of thing?' and as I went deeper, I felt so bad that I wanted to put everything down," he said.

Lastly, Jin said, "It's a depressing song that doesn't fit my birthday, but if it's not my birthday, it's going to be ambiguous, so I released 'Abyss'. ARMYs, please listen carefully even if it's not enough."

Meanwhile, Jin's solo song "Abyss" is available on the BTS SoundCloud.

Hi, this is Jin.

Not long ago, I talked about this during a press conference. "I don't want to share my sad feelings with my fans. Because I want to show only good things. But if it's music, the story is different. I don't usually want to share it with my actions, but I think it's okay to show it to you in music."

Actually, I recently had a big burnout. I think I had a lot of thoughts about myself.

I got congratulations from many people after topping the Billboard Hot 100. Can I get this? Actually, there are many people who love music more and are better than me, so is it okay for me to receive such joy and congratulations?That's what I thought, and as I went deeper, I had a hard time, so I wanted to put everything down.

I've been receiving counseling for this. I talked to PD Bang. He asked me to write about this emotion. I'm already in a position where I'm not supposed to be. When she answered, "That doesn't matter." But if you do, you will definitely do well. He said he would look for someone who fits you.

That's how I got to meet composer Gye Beom-ju and talked about my feelings and many things. She's a bright and positive. He wanted to help me. He brightened me up with his positive energy, saying, "Let's write about a lot of anxiety. If it doesn't go well, we can try something new."

After talking about many things, they made me feel like a track. I wrote what I wanted to say with this, and Abyss is complete. I want to say thank you to Gye Beomju once again.

It's a depressing song that doesn't fit my birthday, but if it's not my birthday, it's going to be ambiguous, so I released Abyss. ARMY, please listen carefully even if it's not enough.



PS. Thank you for writing the lyrics for the chorus.
