Knowing that it was his dream, ARMYs have continually cheered for BTS‘s Jin to pursue an acting career in addition to his current music career like other idols, such as IU and ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo.
He is a trained actor, after all! Jin graduated from Konkuk University in February 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Art & Acting. Even after that, he continued his studies at Hanyang Cyber University and majored in Film for his master’s degree.
How #JIN got into Konkuk University with a Major in Acting
– He applied with 2,012 other applicants with a quota (the # of students they’re accepting) of 10 students only.
– 1st stage is free acting & he passed along with 100 other applicants.#WorldwideJINius @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/dRBKzuNO7L

Still, other than music videos and BTS WORLD, we have yet to see Jin live up to his full potential as an actor. Although we have been teased with these K-Drama-like posters released by BIGHIT MUSIC…
Yet, more than ever, ARMYs have been hoping we will soon see Jin make his official acting debut!

Jin’s role model, actor Kim Nam Gil had mentioned him in an interview a few days before Jin attended the VIP premiere for his new movie Emergency Declaration.
I have worked with younger people like BTS Jin, [ASTRO’s] Cha Eunwoo, and [Girls’ Generation’s] Seohyun, but it seems I have difficulties communicating with them.
— Kim Nam Gil
While Jin confirmed that he does not have a role in the movie, he gave ARMYs hope. So, we will continue to wait patiently for his acting debut.
I’m working hard preparing with my main job as well so everyone, please just wait a little bit~ (cutely)
Until then, we have compiled some of the best ARMY edits of Jin as the male lead in K-Drama posters that absolutely prove he is meant to star!
When the 2022 K-Drama Business Proposal was airing, ARMYs imagined how he would suit a role like Secretary Cha or President Kang!
The original lead actor for Netflix K-Drama Nevertheless, Song Kang is even a fan of Jin’s!
3. Squid Game
Gong Yoo and Jin actually have a few things in common…
5. While You Were Sleeping
He literally looks straight out of a K-Drama without trying!
6. Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha
Considering Jin loves fishing, a seaside village drama like Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha or…
7. Our Blues
…Our Blues would fit him so well!
8. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
Considering Jin is quite athletic, we can totally imagine him in an athletics K-Drama like Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo!
Jin made history with his OST “Yours” for tvN K-Drama Jirisan, but we can’t help but think how amazing he would be if he starred too.
10. Sweet Home
Jin has already proved that he would kill it in a horror role, too, as he appeared as a zombie hunter ARMY.zip membership package. So, maybe he could have a role in Sweet Home 2.
Last but not least, we think Jin would be an excellent CEO. Jin Hit Entertainment, anyone?
What kind of role does Jin actually want to portray, though? Check out his answer below.
