Jimin is celebrating his 26th birthday and shared about the gifts his fellow members gave him. Without knowing the context, Jin’s gift might seem surprising at first. He gave Jimin… pine mushrooms!
There is a cute backstory to this gift. Previously, Jimin shared that being a picky eater makes it difficult for him to eat certain foods like mushrooms. However, after trying a mushroom dish that Jin once cooked, he started really enjoying them! The fact that Jin remembers such cute details is very touching. Moreover, pine mushroom is the MOST expensive mushroom in the world! One pound can be priced from $1,000 to $2,000.

You may wonder how this gift could spice up the rumors about Jin appearing in the most awaited drama of 2021, “Jirisan,” that he sings the main OST for? However, fans found out that pine mushrooms grow only at mount Jiri! This is the mountain where the drama’s filming set took place at.

So Seokjin recently went to the Jiri mountain and pick mushrooms in the land and gave them to Jimin, who loved them very much. But did he go there to only pick mushrooms? 🧐 pic.twitter.com/ZBDbB5IwEm

ARMYs think that Jin might have seen such interesting mushrooms at the filming set and ordered them for Jimin.
There are a few other coincidences that make the anticipation for Jin’s possible cameo in “Jirisan” raises even more:
– Jin’s shadow photograph with a landscape the same as at Mount Jiri.
– His sudden word-play about getting robbed in the mountains.
– Jin kept the same hair color for a year that matches Jirisan’s filming period.
Okay so let's summarize what hint so far we got
1. Jin dye his hair brown since august 2020 – june 2021 and jirisan began filming from september 2020 – june 2021
2. Jin's shadow wv post
3. Bangtan bomb "robbed in the mountain"
