Weverse Magazine published an interview with Jin on July 10th, shortly after his discharge from the military.

Jin expressed that despite being out of work, it still feels like he is on a temporary break and will eventually have to return to his duties. He continues to struggle with adjusting to a new schedule, as he still feels tired at night but must adhere to a regular work schedule.

Sometimes, his fellow soldiers would playfully tease him, saying, “Sergeant Kim, did you do anything besides sleep today?”In response, Jin would jokingly say, “Which barracks are you from
