How Did BTS JIN End Up Being Called a Tortilla Chip?
Over the years since BTS made debut in 2013, its member JIN has been given many nicknames by ARMY (the name of BTS' fan club) around the world.

While some nicknames were mutually used between Korean and non-Korean ARMY, some just stayed among them.

Recently, ARMY in Korea discovered that ARMY outside of Korea have been calling JIN 'Dorito'.

It is what exactly you are thinking of; the name 'Dorito' derives from the famous chip brand 'Doritos', which are triangular tortilla chips that come in various flavors.JINApparently, they came up with the nickname as JIN has broad shoulders and slim waist that remind them of a 'Dorito' chip.

To demonstrate this, they shared pictures that well-displayed JIN's Dorito-shaped body.

Some even edited a 'Dorito' chip on his body to show how suitable this nickname was to JIN.JINKorean fans reacted, "Haha I don't think it would be possible not to think of JIN when I eat 'Doritos' from now on!", "JIN really does have a Dorito-shaped body! This is such a smart nickname!", "We should all tell JIN. He's going to love the nickname for sure!", and so on.JINMeanwhile, BTS is preparing itself for a special performance at '2018 Melon Music Awards' on December 1.
