On January 2, HYBE Labels rolled out their first 'ARTIST-MADE COLLECTION'.
The first 'ARTIST-MADE COLLECTION' was a nighttime collection made by JIN; he designed two different pajamas, and a pillow for people who have neck strain.
However, the price for the pajama set mentioned on the HYBE Labels merchandise site was 119,000 won (approximately 100 dollars), and the pillow was listed as 69,000 won (approximately 58 dollars) each.
A few hours after this had become an issue among fans online, JIN himself expressed his thoughts over the prices on the group's official fan community WeVerse.
JIN said, "Though I did ask them to use a good material for the pajamas, the price is just... I was surprised as well."
Their comments include, "Don't rip us off like this! Make them more affordable, seriously!", "Speak for us, Seok-jin oppa!", "The prices are ridiculous! I can almost buy a ticket for BTS' concert with that money!" and so on.
