It's the first time the oldest member has shown his most vulnerable side to the world. On the release of his incredibly personal song 'Abyss', Seokjin not only opened up about the events leading up to its release, but also regarding his recent troubles.

Jin's sincere words

The letter started off with the singer talking about how he's always been hesitant to show his sad side publicly. We always see him smiling, goofing around, and is even known as the funniest member! But Jinnie's smiling face has been hiding a different persona behind it.

'I don't normally want to share it (sad feelings) with my actions, but I think it's okay to show it as music'. Abyss is a product of this thought process of his. Even though he doesn't share his sadness through his action or even his words, Jin chose to be vulnerable through his music.

Extreme burnout

Our worldwide handsome has been experiencing burnout lately, which was fueled by self-doubt on his part.

Even though topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart twice is a big feat, instead of celebrating, the oldest member had his reservations about whether he even deserves this or not. As an ARMY, I want to remind him that he not only deserves this, but much more too!

Treatment for this sadness

Thankfully, Jin sought therapy for these feelings of unworthiness and the most I can do is hope he gets over these unhealthy thoughts. ARMYs love our worldwide handsome, happy birthday to our Moon!
