BTS has launched a new game for fans of the boy group called ‘BTS Island: In The SEOM’. The game is a completely new concept for fans, unlike the interactive original BTS game ‘BTS World’ that they have loved for years. Co-created by BTS members, the story-rich game will tell the tale of seven friends living on an island and will include fun, addictive puzzles among other features for fans to enjoy.

The members of the group initially teased the launch of the game at the ‘PTD on Stage’ Las Vegas concert on April 8 and it seems like it's soon going to launch, with pre-registration starting from April 26 onwards. All was seemingly going smoothly for the members as well as ARMYs but now it seems like fans of the oldest BTS member are not happy with the way Jin is being singled out for the launch of the game.

HYBE singles BTS Jin out for ‘In the SEOM’ game

As soon as the game opened for pre-registration, fans noticed that the game description mentioned two specific qualities of each BTS member. While the adjectives associated with the six other members matched the personalities that fans get to witness on a daily basis, there was no solo description for Jin. Fans highlighted the description of the game that read, “Find BTS’ stories In the SEOM! Thoughtful and selfless leader RM, sunny and positive J-Hope and Jin, cool and laid back Suga, warm and sweet Jimin, goofy and charming V, good-at-everything Jungkook, In the SEOM characters perfectly reflect the delightful personalities of BTS!”

Fans noticed that Jin had not gotten a specific solo description that talked about his uniqueness in particular but rather clubbed him with J-Hope, who is known for being the sunshine of the boy group. This also led to many fans of Jin noticing that Big Hit Music, the subsidiary of HYBE that manages the activities of BTS, had never promoted Jin’s first K-drama OST ‘Yours’ on their Twitter account as they did for the other six members.

Fans allege that HYBE could have used a wide range of adjectives to describe Jin, including his famous title - Worldwide Handsome (Tenor)

‘This is bad, lazy writing HYBE’

Fans began trending the phrase ‘Change The Description’ and ‘BTS is 7’ on Twitter to draw HYBE’s attention towards the fact that Jin had been singled out once again and HYBE was being biased towards the ‘Epiphany’ singer. One fan said, “Jin & Hobi both deserve better. They’re both brilliant & talented artists & beautiful human beings. There is no dearth of adjectives to describe them so this is just bad, lazy writing. Change the description.” Another fan said, “It's not hard to find words to describe how amazing Jin is. "multitalented & handsome" could've been a nice start, even though he's still more than just that. Jin deserves just as much recognition as everyone else. BTS is 7, CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION.”

One fan pointed out, “Yes, Seokjin and Hobi ARE BOTH sunny and positive, but Hybe, you could’ve gave Jin a proper description. This isn’t the first time you’ve treated the members like this. Remember BTS IS 7. PLEASE CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION.” Another wondered, “Why is Jin always short-changed? First, the non-posting of his ost, and now this. He's a valuable, hard-working member, and deserves equal treatment. @bts_bighit please fix this. BTS IS 7. CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION.”

One fan joked, “Words isn't enough to describe Jin awesomeness and how amazing he is that's why they wrote nothing. All jokes aside Jin deserve sm better. CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION.” Another said, “Dear @BIGHIT_MUSIC plz change the description, Jin also deserves the same about of love like the other members, like example you didn't post JINS ost? But for the other members you did for? Why?.”
