Over the last few years, fans of BTS have been anxiously waiting for the boy group's oldest member to finally make his acting debut. Other than BTS' V (Kim Taehyung) who made his acting debut with the 2016 K-drama 'Hwarang: Poet, Warrior and Youth', BTS Jin (Kim Seokjin) is the only other member of the boy group who has been vocal about his passion for acting. Ever since BTS made their debut, Jin had spoken about how he wanted to be an actor, not an idol, but was scouted to be Big Hit idol trainee and became BTS' 'World Wide Handsome' member instead.

But with BTS announcing a temporary hiatus from group activties, the members are focusing on their solo activities. Fans were sure that Jin would be approached by many directors with acting projects in the near future and it does seem like that could happen very soon. On July 21, fans were intrigued by an interview with actor Kim Nam-gil where he talked about working with younger artists like Astro's Cha Eunwoo and BTS' Jin in a project and how it made him feel old.

Kim Nam-gil mentions BTS' Jin in a recent interview

In the interview, Kim Nam-gil, who has been active in the Korean Entertainment industry since 1999, spoke about working with younger talents like BTS' Jin, Astro's Cha Eunwoo and Girls' Generation's Seohyun but was not able to communicate well with them due to the age barrier. It is no secret that Jin has been a fan of Kim Nam-gil for years and the BTS member had talked about how the actor inspired him to be one too. In his interview with Cosmopolitan, Kim Nam-gil was asked about how he is able to communicate well with artists who are older than him who were born in the 70s even though he was born in 1980.

The actor said, "Well, there are things that I communicate better with my older brothers and sisters. I did a lot of work with young friends like BTS Jin, Eunwoo and Seohyun, but could not communicate well." Fans who recently saw that Eunwoo attended the listening party for J-Hope's 'Jack In The Box' where Jin was present too, started making up theories about the two idols working on a new project with actor Kim Nam-gil. Not only that but Jin's recent trip to Jeju Island happened around the same time as Nam-gil was in the island, news of which is adding fuel to the fire of BTS Jin making his acting debut in the days to come.
