The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, including BTS and their family members.
Jin opened up about his older brother’s hardships during an interview on MBC Radio‘s Bae Cheol Soo’s Music Camp (BCSMC) program.
Like many restaurant owners, Kim Seokjung is struggling to stay afloat because of COVID-19.
Jin and his brother opened Ossu Seiromushi back in 2018 (Jin as the director and Kim Seokjung as the owner). It features traditional Japanese cuisine served in wooden steamers, seiro-mushi style, and many other mouthwatering dishes.
Kim Seokjung and his restaurant are now both suffering from a loss of business.
“My big brother runs a restaurant and he’s suffering from the pandemic,” Jin said. “Nowadays, I talk to him about his difficulties. He recently sold his car to keep his business, so I’m worried about these difficulties.”
Now, some fans are hoping to save the business by donating to Jin’s brother and visiting Ossu Seiromushi in person.
