We don’t have much access to information about his parents, but his father works as the chief executive of a company and appears to be well off. Jin’s, dad travels a lot and usually takes him along which explains why the young singer is well exposed, having visited places like Australia Europe, and Japan.

Nothing has been mentioned about Jin’s mother. But she seems to be as supportive of his singing career as his father is. The Family seems to be a close-knit one; this became quite clear when Jin shed tears of joy when he sighted his parents at the BTS’ concert. 2015 Parents Day saw the young crooner posting a cover of the famed Korean song titled Mom, this he did in a bid to express his gratitude to both parents for their love and care.

Jin’s position in the family is that of the youngest child, and he has an elder brother called Kim Seok Jung who according to the BTS group member, takes the credit for introducing him into the world of hip hop. Kim is older than Jin by a couple of years, though, it would appear that his brother did not further his interest in music since he is not popular.

Though his place of birth is recorded as Anyang, Gyeonggi-do, Jin relocated to Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea with the rest of his family when he turned one, and that is where he eventually spent a better part of his growing up years. Jin is presently the oldest among the members of BTS and is recording unprecedented success in his career as a musician.
