On the other hand, Jimin had a name tag with his birthday i.e October 13, 1995. The other number reads 141018, these numbers mean a lot to the singer.

On the other hand, J-hope used his birthday that falls on February 18, 1994. The top number 660660 translates to "kiss" in Korean. It is a pager code. 

Jungkook is standing behind Jin and is holding the nametag with his birthday, September 1, 1997. The top number reads 110604 which is when the singer shifted to BTS' old dorm in Nonhyeon-dong. Jin who celebrates his birthday on December 4, 1992, has random numbers on the name tag.
