Jin of BTS will appear at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

On the 3rd (Korean time), his agency Big Hit Music announced, “BTS Jin will be a torchbearer for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics, which will be held on July 27.” Although the specific schedule has not been revealed, Jin is expected to participate in the torch relay and spread the message of 'harmony' and 'peace'.

BTS, of which Jin is a member, is called a '21st century pop icon' and has built a worldwide fandom. BTS, which has established itself as a global artist in name and reality, is practicing its positive influence through two UN General Assembly speeches and the 'LOVE MYSELF' campaign that has been running with the Korean Committee for UNICEF since 2017.

Meanwhile, the '2024 Paris Summer Olympics' torch relay began in Olympia, Greece, in April and will travel to 64 regions, including downtown France and beaches, until the day of the event. Jin and the torchbearers will tour historic sites symbolizing the host country.

Meanwhile, Jin, who was discharged after completing his active duty military service on the 12th of last month, will appear on MBC's entertainment program 'It's Good to Have a Good Rest' (hereinafter referred to as 'Good Rest'). Jin, who met fans through a hug party immediately after being discharged from the military, chose entertainment programs as his next move. New music recording is also in progress.
