Mr. Worldwide Handsome Jin is on a roll!

The BTS member topped Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation's ranking for individual boy group members in December, marking the first time he ever hit no. 1 on the brand reputation chart.

Jin's feat also breaks the streak of fellow BTS member Jimin, who held the spot for 35 consecutive months.




Spurring his jump to the top spot was none other than his viral hit "Super Tuna," which he released as a gift for his fans on his birthday last Dec. 4.

Despite being a surprise drop with no formal dance challenge launched, "Super Tuna" quickly became viral on TikTok with 173 million views in the #SuperTuna tag alone.

The music video, released less than two weeks ago, has already accumulated over 32 million views.


"Yours," Jin's soundtrack for the K-drama "Jirisan," also aided the rise of his brand reputation ranking. The song scored the biggest debut for a Korean OST in Spotify history, and was the first one to enter the streaming platform's Global chart at no. 45.

Both "Yours" and "Super Tuna" are currently high up on Billboard's Hot Trending Songs chart, prompting Forbes to call Jin the most successful male artist from his field today.

Korea Institute's monthly ranking is based on consumer participation, media and communication activities, among others.

Jimin comes second on the list, as published by Soompi, followed by V, then Jungkook.

Of course, the other BTS members aren't far behind. At the 9th spot is Suga, 11th is RM, and 15th is J-Hope.

Other male idols who made it to the Top 10 are 2PM's Junho, WINNER's Song Min Ho, ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo, SF9's Rowoon, and WINNER's Kim Jin Woo. —JCB, GMA News
