BTSโ€™ Jin, the eldest member of the group, is often praised for his honesty, witty remarks, and humor. He is also known for being hard working, which is a trait that BTS members swear by. ARMYs once again discovered the extent of his professionalism in the recently released jacket shoot of The Astronaut concept photos.

In a behind-the-scenes video, BTSโ€™ Jin informed fans that he had a hoarse voice because he had contracted epiglottitis. The idol, however, continued with the photo shoot without any complaints. He was also seen gesturing at times when he could not talk. In the video, the idol explained:

โ€œWeโ€™re shooting my jacket photo today. I want to apologize in advance. I contracted epiglottitis a few days ago so my voice is a bit hoarse and I have a hard time talking. Iโ€™d like to ask for your understanding before we start.โ€

According to Healthline, epiglottitis causes inflammation and swelling of the epiglottis and is a potentially life-threatening illness:

โ€œThe epiglottis is at the base of your tongue. Itโ€™s made up of mostly cartilage. It works as a valve to prevent food and liquids from entering your windpipe when you eat and drink. The tissue that makes up the epiglottis can become infected, swell, and block your airway.โ€
epiglottitis is not just a simple sore throat, it's potentially life threatening if not treated properly and seokjin despite being sick and needing rest , worked so hard, with a smile on his face so he can give us his best for the astronaut please streamโ€ผ๏ธhttps://t.co/vkpBU7AyjT

When fans learned that BTS' Jin was experiencing the same grievous issue during The Astronaut concert with Colplay, they could not help but compliment his dedication. They showered the idol with love and support and wished for him to recover well.

BTSโ€™ Jin has had a wonderful record of appearing at South Korean variety shows. However, owing to their worldwide recognition, the septet hardly featured on local shows lately.

Yet, before enlisting in the military, Jin made sure to have fun with popular entertainers. He has appeared on Youngjiโ€™s My Alcohol Diary, Halmyungsoo, and Running Man.

BTS' Jin also reportedly made an application on November 4 to cancel his military postponement that was granted to him automatically until the end of 2022 after a revision in the Military Service Act. Earlier, BIGHIT MUSIC announced that the idol will be enlisting after his promotions for solo debut.
