'Running Man' Star Ji Seok Jin Reveals the Reason He is Afraid to Text BTS' Jin 

Recently, "Running Man" star, Ji Seok Jin, made a guest appearance on the September 7 episode of KBS2's program "Problem Child in the House," after being invited on the show by his long-time friend and host, Kim Yong Man. During his appearance, Ji Seok Jin talked about his relationship with BTS' oldest member, Jin, who he shares the same name with.

At one point in the show during a quiz, the hosts and Ji Seok Jin found out that BTS uses oxygen respirators once they return backstage after their performances. Upon learning this heartbreaking fact, the hosts were shocked and commented, "That is really professional of them, but really sad. No wonder they are so loved all over the world."

While they were talking about BTS, the hosts asked Ji Seok Jin about his relationship with Jin. To which Ji Seok Jin became shy and said, "It is quite embarrassing for me to say that we are close. We had only exchanged our phone numbers."

Ji Seok Jin then surprised viewers by revealing he is actually afraid to text Jin first. "I mean, every now and then we do text each other, but I am worried that me talking about him will have a negative influence on BTS or Jin," said Ji Seok Jin.

Ji Seok Jin also shares that Jin contacts him despite having a busy schedule. "Even though Jin is busy, he sometimes sends me photos when he is in the United States and stuff. It has probably been a few months since we last spoke though," added Ji Seok Jin.
