Jin of BTS has just graduated. The graduation ceremony was held on Feb. 22, in BTS dressing room during the 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards. Nope, not kidding.

Jin has finally graduated! BTS celebrated his graduation live with the fans via Naver's app V Live as they attend the 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards, reports Soompi.

Jin explained during the broadcast that his actual graduation was unfortunately the same date as that of the 6th Gaon Chart Music Awards. So he and fellow members of BTS decided to do the graduation rite during the awards ceremony.

Jin then took out his graduation cap and gown that he prepared. BTS leader Rap Monster and Jungkook helped him don his getup to make it seem like an official ceremony. Cheers to the loving twosome!

Jin then proceeded to throw his cap in which the rest of the band cheered him to do so. Suga waited behind Jin as he prepared to catch the cap. Jin apparently looked frustrated (jokingly, however) because the ceiling in the room was too low and that it ruined his dream shot.

Jin expressed how he was on his way to school in April or May when he was approached by a casting agent from Big Hit Entertainment. Rap Monster then added that graduating from the university was his destiny.

J-Hope, V, and Jimin then joined the broadcast. The trio made their entrance carrying a bouquet of flowers and a cake for Jin.

Jin also posted a picture of him in his graduation getup in the group's official Twitter account, with the caption "I'm so happy that we do everything together. Thank you, ARMY." ARMY is what fans of BTS call themselves.

Jin graduated in Konkuk University, and studied drama, according to All Kpop. BTS' Jungkook also graduated on Feb. 7 from School of Performing Arts Seoul or SOPA.
