While on his way to school, a person suddenly came up to him. This person ended up being a casting director from Big Hit Entertainment. The casting director then suggested to Jin that they should have a meeting, and the rest is history.

Someone from the company approached me, like, ‘Oh, this is my first time seeing anyone that looked like this.’ He suggested having a meeting with me.”
