Jin is still in the process of finishing his basic training in the military. Today, people find out that Jin became the commander of his unit, consisting of 200 soldiers.
The badge on his uniform says that Jin was chosen as the commander of his platoon. Fans say that this was very much expected from Jin because the artist is known for being very determined, hardworking, intelligent, and athletic. Korean fans elaborated on what it means to become a commander of a unit in the army. First of all, to become one, you need to have great physical strength, a loud voice, good social skills to solve various problems and be dedicated and hardworking. Now, Jin represents a unit of 200 people. If there's an event, he talks as a representative, reports on the company's roll call, be a great example for other soldiers, and speaks on behalf of the people of his unit. The commander is chosen by voting among the trainees, which means Jin was selected to be one. Commanders are well-respected by the army's seniors, and other trainees must treat them with respect as well. As a leader, Jin has a higher chance of getting awarded at the training graduation.
The camp reported that Jin's unit was having a gas training, called CBR. Jin received a positive reaction among K-netizens because of participating in the difficult training. The reason is that gas training is very uncomfortable; it irritates your skin and eyes. Many soldiers say that they have an allergy or sensitive skin. That's why it's easier to skip the gas training, and only some participate in it. However, Jin was one of those who did their duty bravely.
