Seven hundred days ago, BTS‘s Jin released his solo song “Moon” as a part of BTS’s album Map of the Soul: 7.
Since it was released, the meaningful song received a lot of recognition.
It was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone‘s list of the “Greatest Boy Band Songs of All Time.” The article claims that the song “sums up everything that’s made BTS massive.”
A reminder that Moon sung by Jin got a lot of achievements on it's bag. One of the biggest flex is that it ranked #5 on the list of Rolling Stones magazine's 75 GREATEST BOY BAND SONGS OF ALL TIME. No one is at his level.🔥💅#700DaysWithMoon #문_700일_축하해 pic.twitter.com/JS8sLwfW4t

“Moon” also became the longest-charting solo song by any BTS member on Melon Chart.
And “Moon” was the third BTS song to achieve 100 #1’s in iTunes‘ history.
But perhaps more importantly to ARMY is the meaning behind Jin’s song. The song is dedicated from Jin to ARMY and includes English lyrics such as “all for you” and “all I see is you,” which demonstrates his love for his fans.
My fave lyrics from Moon.
I wonder all of a sudden, are you also looking at me right now?
Even my painful scars, wouldn't everything be found out by you?
I will orbit you
I will stay by your side
I will become your light
All for you#700DaysWithMoon #문_700일_축하해 @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/uPEmul84Y6

The song itself is about returning the love that Jin has been given, promising to stay by the side of those that have always supported and encouraged him.

But not only do the lyrics of “Moon” feel like a comforting hug, but when Jin finally got a chance to perform the song for ARMY, he took full advantage to further show his appreciation for his fans.

He performed the song during a live stream concert Map of the Soul ON:E. And during his solo performance, he hugged and kissed a replica of the Earth as a way to demonstrate that he would always be looking out for ARMY, just like he promised in the lyrics of the song.
