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.
Op: Seokjin’s badge says ‘company commander’s trainee’, meaning he is the leader of his group.
He could’ve applied for it or most likely was recommended by others as a good example. In whichever the case is he’ll have a higher chance of getting awarded at training graduation!!! https://t.co/2FNPfkWvzN

seokjin becoming the commander of his trainee company is exactly the trajectory i expected his enlistment to take. this is a man who does his best wherever he goes, and is tactful as well as considerate with people around him. what a morale boost too, to have a leader like jin.

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.
If you just ‘verbally’ tell them that you have skin or respiratory related conditions, they will excuse you without additional check up. It’s because they don’t want to get involved in any trouble. +

Jin becoming a commander became a Hot topic on TheQoo, and here are some of the top comments:
“Commander Jin is very brave!”
“Jin is very famous and it would be easy for him to skip the CBR training. It’s crazy that he still participated.”
“I’m a man that was recently discharged from the army and I’m surprised that Jin participated in CBR and became a commander. He’s amazing, good luck!”
“He is so cool, please come back soon..”
“Wow, if he finishes with excellent grades, he will receive something like a rewarding holiday!”
Coming from my own military experience, I can tell you that Jin is great, because it’s really easy to get out of CBR training. If you simply tell them you have either a skin or respiratory condition, they’d opt you out w/out an examination cuz + #TheAstronaut #JIN https://t.co/DVFIGmDgzG
