Jin said that he and his brother were having a difficult time running their culinary business. Even Jin’s brother was forced to sell his car so the restaurant could survive. This saddened Jin. Also, he and his brother have no experience in the field of food and drink.
“My brother and I are in the food business and it has been difficult lately because of the COVID-19 situation. We have been trying hard to find ways to improve the situation,” Jin was quoted as saying by Soompi.
