As the oldest member of BTS, Jin's mandatory enlistment deadline is approaching, as he must enlist by the end of 2022. Still, whatever happens, Jin has solo plans just like the rest of the members.
When BTS were discussing their hiatus, Jin brought up the fact that he initially wanted to become an actor before he ended up pursuing music. "The reason I wanted to become an actor is because I would learn and experience lots of different things depending on the roles I get," he said. "That's the reason I wanted to be an actor, but I became an idol instead and experienced and learned even more than I could've ever imagined."
He added that he might act later on, but not anytime soon, so for now, it seems he'll focus on releasing solo music first before he branches out into the acting world. As far as the timeline goes, Jin mentioned he would release his solo album last.
Additionally, in a June 14 interview with Weverse Magazine, Jin teased that he wants to appear on a variety show. "I thought about going on a variety show to make myself happy, not for the group or because of my popularity or for work, because filming those shows might put me in a happy mood," he said. "There are some things about variety shows that are tough, of course, but it's also a chance to laugh your head off on set all day."
