The most important impact an artist can achieve is an impact on people’s mental state. Jin was named one of the Asian artists that helped destigmatizing mental health problems through their art (especially with his solo song “Abyss”). One of his most powerful solo songs in this matter is definitely “Epiphany.”

Mexican national TV made a touching report about a boy named Arturito who was diagnosed with autism, epilepsy, and other illnesses. His mom shared his life story: Arturito used to have terrible autistic spectrum crises when any noise was making him scared and anxious; he was covering his ears, biting and hurting himself. And one day, a miracle happens. Arturito started singing along to a certain song. It turns out that that special song was “Epiphany” by Jin that Arturito once heard.
Arturito es un niño autista y sufre epilepsia, su mamá conto que su vida cambió a través de las canciones de BTS, comenzó cuando entro en crisis por efecto autista, entonces ni bien escucho “Epiphany” todo se calmo, su madre describe esto como si fuera “magia” @BTS_twt + pic.twitter.com/BltFTkKDsv

While watching “Epiphany” MV, the boy touches and kisses the screen that shows Jin’s face while singing along to the song that calms down and makes him feel safe and comfortable.
Healing Song Epiphany has always touched our hearts from the very 1st “Im the one I should love” we heard. It’s beautiful to know that stories about it’s impact & how it opens up a topic, that’s sensitive into this generation. We need more singers like #BTSJIN that can move us. pic.twitter.com/Tn0Kr7hS1s

“Everything is calming down by playing Epiphany,” his mother said. Arturito is a 3y/o boy diagnosed w/Autism.There was a time when he’s hitting his head and biting his lips but the moment he heard Epiphany, he’ll stop hurting himself.

Every time Jin was performing “Epiphany,” the audience was migrating into a theater in another universe. An emotional and skillful singer like Jin handled such difficult philosophically and vocally songs like a boss as well as creating a unique atmosphere using the actor-like stage presence he naturally has.
A creative director of BTS’s concert tour praised Jin’s solo performance and said it felt like “meeting a god.”
“Since Jin sang Epiphany countless times from the LY Tour, his singing ability was perfect, and in the middle break part, his facial expressions were very natural walking up the stairs and standing at the top.”

“Epiphany” is one of the few most commented videos by Korean artists, and people share their stories under it. Another song about mental issues that Jin released – “Abyss,” is the most commented audio in the world as the comment section was filled with touching stories about how Jin has helped them.
