GUKMOOL AND JIN
Manila Bulletin Publishing Corp
When he is not in the limelight as his “worldwide handsome” persona, Jin caters to Gukmool, his cute Sugar Glider (preceded by two other Sugar Gliders, Odeng and Eomuk, and rescue Dog Jjangu, who have all crossed the rainbow bridge). In 2019, the vocalist released a solo song titled “Tonight” as an ode to his companion animals. In a statement accompanying its release, Jin said he wrote the song with them in mind. Part of the lyrics says, “If I close my eyes, I think I’ll remember the times we spent together. When I close my eyes again, I think only happy memories will come to mind.” If that’s not love, we don’t know what is.
