Jin’s love for Maple story was revealed in one of his Vlive videos when he said, “I am 27 years old now, and I started [playing Maple Story] when I was 12 years old in 5th grade elementary school.”
He also told fans about a very hilarious incident in one of his very famous vlive about his aunt when she gave him some allowance money. “I was at a family gathering with my aunt and a few of my cousins. My aunt suddenly began to hand out allowance money to all of my cousins. X amount to who, X amount to who, and she even gave some to my brother. Then, she looked straight at me [and hesitated for a bit], before saying, ‘Okay…you too…I guess…allowance for you too’ and gave me some allowance money too. I was so thankful. I will save it well and use it when I cash in on Maple Story.” Turns out Jin really is a Maple Story fan after all.
BTS’ Jin also posted a picture of himself holding Maple Story characters on the group’s official Twitter account.
