Fans who have been hoping for updates were definitely surprised! He also sent a heartfelt message to BTS’s oldest member, Jin, who is now serving in the military.

Following that, an ARMY asked him, “Do you have any gifts for ARMY?” In return, he urged the fans to wait for a special present. They also asked him to show them his drawings, and he vowed to get dressed and showcase his artwork. He proudly displayed his drawing, which read, “To ARMY, Merry Christmas- Jimin.” Following a sweet photo of himself.

Jimin’s fellow bandmates, BTS V (Kim Taehyung) also sent fans Christmas gifts. He gave a cover of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” to his fans as a surprise. On December 23, the singer released the song, which he recorded with his pet dog,  Yeotan. Enjoy the video down below.
