BTS member Jimin was praised by the WHO for wearing face masks in the new normal.
Jimin from BTS is the clear example of the “new normal” according to the Head of Social Networks and Media Monitoring of the World Health Organization, Sari Setiogi Griberg.
The WHO head of social media took to Twitter to share an image from BTS’s Instagram Stories showing Jimin wearing a mask during a practice session. She tagged the group and also urged her followers to be like Jimin in her post.
In the picture, the BTS member was rehearsing for the MTV Video Music Awards according to AllKpop, a Korean media portal. Jimin, dressed casually in the picture, was wearing a jean jacket over a darker shade tee and matching beanie.
