BTS Jimin is attracting attention as a person who gives great comfort during an interview with children surviving typhoon damage in the Philippines.
On January 18, Philippine national news broadcaster ‘TV PATROL’ reported how super typhoon ‘Rai’ (Filipino name ODETTE), which hit the Philippines last month and caused enormous damage, affected the Filipino people.
Viewers paid attention to the appearance of a girl in the video, which contains the daily life of the locals and the contents of the interview.
A girl who identified herself as a fan of BTS said, “If I listen to BTS’ songs and watch music videos, my worries disappear little by little,” and said that she likes Jimin the most among the members. The girl showed off her phone screen with Jimin as the wallpaper and boasted that her favorite is Jimin.
With the girl’s confession that she finds comfort through BTS and Jimin even in difficult circumstances, fans responded, “I am grateful for being a fan of BTS.” “Your phone wallpaper is the same as mine,” “I hope you overcome it bravely,” “Jimin, give me strength,” and “Jimin is a being who gives comfort to many people.”
The super typhoon ‘Rai’ (ODETTE), which hit the southeastern Philippines ahead of Christmas, is a mega typhoon with a maximum wind speed of 259 kilometers per hour, causing significant damage, including 380 casualties, more than 1,100 injuries, and more than 4.2 million victims as of December 27.
Accordingly, Jimin’s US fan base ‘Park Jimin USA’ donated to the US Red Cross and UNICEF USA to share the pain, spreading Jimin’s warmth to the world. BTS Jimin is an icon of healing and a sample of good influence across the globe, setting an example of a model fandom.
