BTS' Jin Covers Korean Rock Ballad, Debut Track Of Yoon Do-hyun
The BTS backstory includes paying homage to artists who have made a great musical impact. Hence the new cover song released on Soundcloud on June 7 by BTS' Jin is a shout out to living legend of Korean rock, Yoon Do-hyun, who went on to front the band YB. "In Front Of The Post Office In Autumn" was the title track of Yoon's critically admired 1994 debut album, and now it's being heard by BTS fans everywhere through Jin's rousing retro-rock version.
Jin is known as "Worldwide Handsome" and keeps a running joke going about his face being the key to everything. He's said BigHit Entertainment chose him while he was in school because he's good looking, but in reality he keeps his head down at his desk and is very studious in pursuing higher education while in BTS.
"In Front Of The Post Office In Autumn" is Jin's first major solo track since "Awake" from BTS' 2016 album Wings, which was Jin's big finale to the series of short films that richly expanded BTS' alternative storyline universe. More recently we felt his pain in "Fake Love" at being unable to take care of the flower that symbolizes the truth untold.
Now that we are in 2018 Festa celebrating the anniversary of BTS' formation, anticipation for further treats is at a fever pitch. Many have enjoyed the "Fake Love" extended version that was released on June 1, with new mind-blowing visuals, followed by a rock interpretation of "Spring Day" on June 3. As with BTS tracks and creations in general, Jin's "In Front of the Post Office in Autumn" stands on its own just fine.
