BTS’s Jin says he’s ‘shocked’ by retail price of new boy band merchandise

BTS member Jin recently took to social media to express his shock at the price of his new line of self-designed products.

Earlier this week, HYBE launched the collection created by the artist by BTS, a collection of merchandise featuring designs created by each member of the group. According to the entertainment company’s announcement, each member would have a release date dedicated to their product line.

The first product collection to launch was Jin’s, which consisted of an ergonomic pillow and pajama sets with angel and devil designs. The pillow costs 69,000 (around £ 43), while the pajamas cost 119,000 (around £ 74) each.

After launching his own collection of merchandise, Jin personally took to the Wevese community platform to express his surprise at the prices of the items. “I asked them to use a nice fabric for the pajamas … but even I was shocked at the price” the singer wrote, translated by Koreaboo.

Fans also took to social media to share their reaction to the awards, inspirational memes and other posts that echoed Jin’s sentiment.

BTS are currently on extended rest for the first time since 2019 following their four sold-out shows at SoFi Stadium in LA and their appearance at the LA stop of iHeartRadio’s 2021 Jingle Ball Tour.

“The rest period will produce the members of BTS… a chance to re-inspire and rejuvenate with creative energy,” Big Hit said when announcing the hiatus. “It will also be the first time for them since their debut [in 2013 where they will get] spend the end of year celebrations with the family.

Although no date has been given for the band’s return to work, their label has confirmed that they will soon be preparing for scheduled concerts in Seoul, which will take place in March, as well as work on a new album. .
