Last week, BTS member Jin was spotted at the 2022 Korea Open tennis tournament while watching Casper Ruud’s match. The oldest member of the Septet arrived unannounced as he hid behind a mask and hat. He left right after the end of the match, but was quickly noticed by some onlookers! Jin didn’t even post anything about attending the match on his social media account.

Jin is an important part of the South Korean boy group BTS. He is the oldest of them and is popularly known as Mr. Worldwide Handsome. Currently, all the members are focused on their upcoming World Trade Expo 2030 concert. HYBE has finally cleared up the rumors surrounding the controversy surrounding the financing of BTS’s upcoming concert in Busan, which is scheduled to take place in October. Recently, reports began circulating that concert tickets sold out within minutes as soon as they went live. This has demonstrated, once again, the global stardom of the Septet. However, concerns were also raised about the designated location due to the increased number of people. Therefore, the venue was changed to Busan Asiad Main Stadium from Ilgwang Special Stage.
