If you’re hoping to charm BTS‘s Jin, well, expect the unexpected!
Jin has shot down marriage proposals and pickup lines using his trademark humor and wit, to the point where it can be hard to tell when he’s clowning ARMY or not.
On Weverse, on ARMY was ready to risk it all in two languages. In Korean and English, the fan wrote a humorous sketch about Jin’s effect on ARMY.
Nurse: doctor, just arrived another patient.
Doctor: it seems that she is under the effect of Kim Seokjin.
Nurser: Hw is this effect?
Doctor: When you least realize it, your heart has already been totally stolen by Kim Seokjin’s charm and charisma.
— Fan, Weverse
“Jin, you stole my heart, now assume your actions!” they wrote below the sketch. “If beauty was flower. Jin, you would be the Botanical Garden!”
How did Jin reply? “Nice joke :)”
Now, ARMYs can’t decide if Jin’s comment is supposed to be sweet or savage! Team Savage members are seeing this as yet another “Jin friendzoning ARMY” moment.
"i'm literally in love with you"
"nice joke :)"

Team Sweet, however, believes Jin’s comment was meant to be a sincere compliment.

as savage/sarcastic tho, i imagine that he was smiling like this •ᴗ• when he said that pic.twitter.com/4mvIba988M

Not everyone uses “ 🙂 “ with negative intent. it is not fair to say SJ is “savage” or “mean” when he simply said “nice joke :)” he could have easily meant it and wanted to add a cute emoji. I cant believe it’s still being said in 2021 but stop reducing everything to a joke.
