BTS Jin shows his popularity once more with the self-produced catchy song ‘Super Tuna,’ as well as the performance video, which was published on his birthday, December 4, and has taken over the world in just 5 days. The video topped the charts for four days in a row, dethroning Billie Eilish, Ed Sheeran, and others!
Jin’s ‘Super Tuna’ special performance video, which was uploaded on BTS’ official YouTube account on December 4th, topped 20 million views on YouTube, and as of December 10th. The song has also charted in the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 Hot Trending Songs, and the hashtag ‘Super Tuna’ has received 100 million views on TikTok.
“It’s a song I made for fun while fishing with a friend.” He also expressed his shy feelings about the unexpected popularity to the fan community on ‘Weverse’, “No, these people, don’t do this challenge I didn’t plan. I am so embarrased,” he said.
Despite being a ‘goofy‘ and ‘embarrassing‘ song, as Jin himself stated, news and variety shows began playing portions of the song, indicating its popularity. The Korean Ministry of Fisheries has also joined the #SuperTuna contest. ‘Super Tuna’ is a song written and produced by Bumzu of PLEDIS Entertainment. Jin, who normally goes fishing with fellow BTS member SUGA, has always shown a penchant for hauling in large catches.
