BTS members enjoy a huge worldwide fan following not only as a band but also as individual musicians. It was previously confirmed that members would soon be dropping off the self-designed wares and gin collections that have already hit the market. However, AMRYs were stunned by the prices and it looks like Jin himself is unhappy with the hefty price tag.
For the boys in Bengtan, who have recently been on a break, vacationing with their families for the first time since their debut. Suga had previously tested positive for COVID 19 when he returned from the US and was in quarantine for nearly two weeks before being declared covid free. The group’s leader RM and the oldest Hyung, Jin also tested positive and are still in the recovery stage.
In the most recent development, BTS’ Gin and their managing company, Hybe Labels, launched a bunch of merchandise designed by Gin himself. These included special pillows, pajamas and a bunch of other items that could be used on a regular basis. However, the prices mentioned on the site were around US$110 (8k plus) for most items and some articles were even more expensive. ARMYs flooded social media platforms as they were disappointed with the high prices.
Within the next few hours, Jin himself expressed his views on the prices and wrote on Weavers, “Although I asked him to use a good material for the pajamas at what price… I was also surprised. ” Fans were excited to see him speak for ARMY, although it went against his own management company.
A group of netizens also brought back the Jinhit joke and asked them to bring down the prices and make them more affordable. See a bunch of responses here.
