Comments about Jin from the “Fix You’ performance on YouTube
“The fact that Jin says his voice is just clean like yes it is bit it’s more then that sir it’s healing. Idk if he does this because he feels the others are better but he is so amazing at singing. I cried for the solos songs he has done and man his voice like gahh”_ lizroman14
“As a hardcore Cold Play fan. They did an amazing job covering this. The guy with the purple and pink mic vocals matches this song well. From a Cold Play fan to BTS, kudos all around” _Logan DeGuzman
“This song is so close to my heart, it came out the same day I lost my grandmother and although it’s been over a decade, it still hits just the same, I cherish this song and is generally dismissive of any and every cover of this. But wow this. It touched me so much. All the boys are such amazing singers!! I thought some of them only rapped lol. Their vocals, the harmony, it made me feel the same way seeing Coldplay perform this live did. They put their heart and soul in this and if they do this for a cover, I wonder how their own songs sound like. The guy who ends the song gave me goosebumps, his voice is so, so rich. And the one who sits at the far right, wow. The tenor of his voice is unmatched. I especially love the one with the pink mic. Hi voice is so… soulful, emotional, I felt chills, it pushed me to tears. Someone please, introduce him to me! This cover was so perfect. This is phenomenal, now someone please introduce the pink mic guy to me.” _Irene H
