Now, you might be thinking that “the essentials of a global K-pop star wouldn’t be SO relatable,” but you’d be surprised that Jin’s top picks are actually quite easy to come by. Some of them are even strewn all over his Instagram posts, leading us to believe that he really does use these items.

Don’t believe us? Scroll to find out BTS’s Kim Seok-Jin’s holy grail lifestyle choices and where to buy them.

ARMYs (BTS fans) already know that Seok-Jin loves tennis. But he does not use just any tennis racket and bag during his sports sessions; his choice of gear includes the adorable Minions from a limited-edition collaboration with sports brand Wilson.

Jin joked that as a “superstar,” he only needed to own limited-edition items, and this cute collection was just what he needed. Unfortunately, the bag he showed in the video is no longer available on Wilson’s website and is not yet available for direct shipping to Singapore, but there are still others Minions themed tennis and sports equipment (USD 15-299/~SGD 21-424) on the brand’s online store to add to cart in the future if you want to pair up with Jin.

Louis Vuitton Sac Plat XS in Blue Green

According to him, Jin prefers shoulder bags to backpacks because they are more practical.

The next on Jin’s essentials of BTS is this Louis Vuitton bag by Virgil Abloh (3,700 SGD at official brand stores) which Jin describes as something he always wears. The bag is compact but roomy enough to hold her other daily essentials like her wallet and some medications. He also said he prioritizes “functionality over design” and finds backpacks bulky, so a shoulder bag he can easily carry is much more preferable.

NIVEA Strawberry Shine Lip Balm

Jin’s lip balm is a drugstore choice!

We don’t really see this essential up close in the video, but when Jin pulled out the contents of his LV Sac Plat, we got a glimpse of his go-to lip balm, which is the NIVEA Strawberry Shine Lip Balm. The Pharmacy Choice is quite affordable at SGD 4.90 via Guardian. Judging by Jin’s pink lips, it keeps wrinkles plump and hydrated, just like these pure lips.

It looks like ARMYs aren’t the only ones loving BTS merchandise, as Jin also shared his love for BTS’s Good Day Pajamas ($110.55/~SGD157, shipped to Singapore), which he designed . The pajamas features a TinyTAN (cartoon versions of BTS members) design in the shape of an angel. Seok-Jin said he takes his own pair on tour every time. This pair is already sold out on the WeVerse store but you can check out the to place from time to time to see if restocks will be available again.

BTS are Samsung’s current global ambassadors, so it’s no wonder Jin’s phone choice is the latest Z Flip device of the brand. He describes his phone as “like air, like oxygen” since he always has it with him. You’ll see in the video that he dressed it up with a BTS-inspired patterned phone case. He also talked about being obsessed with watching YouTube videos and reading webtoons on his phone in his spare time.

The Z Flip Thom Browne Edition is no longer available, but the standard Z Flip Phone is available in Official Samsung Stores in Singapore from SGD 1,398.

Another essential element of Kim Seok-Jin from the video is her pair of “faded” Louis Vuitton seaside mules. The BTS member admitted that he’s owned the pair for years, so the color has already faded. He also claims he probably wears them “300 out of 365 days a year” and takes them everywhere from hangouts to fishing spots.
