The graduation ceremony for the students of Konkuk Universtiy took place on February 22. This is the same day the '6th GAON Chart K-Pop Awards' was held. Unfortunately, Jin was unable to attend his graduation ceremony due to the award show.
During Naver's 'V Live', Jin expressed the sorrow in missing out his graduation, saying, "I wanted to attend the graduation ceremony because I wanted to wear the cap. I asked to go but ultimately couldn't. So I prepared the cap and gown to have a self-graduation ceremony."
The members of BTS joined the celebration and congratulated Jin on his big day. Jin also thanked the university for giving him the chance to become BTS. He said, "It feels like it was just yesterday that I got accepted to the university but I'm already graduating. I was street cast during my way to orientation. It's a school that made my destiny."
Jin didn't forget to thank his fans as he shared a photo on Twitter with the caption, "I'm happy that I can enjoy everything with you. Thank you, ARMY."
