In a significant transition for K-pop sensation BTS, members V, RM, Jungkook, and Jimin are gearing up to fulfill their mandatory military service obligations in South Korea. The impending enlistment has sparked widespread interest, particularly as details emerge about the enlistment date and the specific units the members will join.
Notably, the focus is on Kim Taehyung, popularly known as V, for his decision to enlist in the Special Task Force of the Army’s Capital Defense Command. Fans and industry observers eagerly await further information, and BIGHIT MUSIC has issued a brief statement confirming that the exact joining date for these K-pop idols is still under consideration.
Recent reports have suggested that Jimin and Jungkook are set to join the Army’s 5th Infantry Division boot camp. Adding an intriguing layer to this development is the fact that their eldest bandmate, Jin, is already engaged at the same division, serving as an assistant trainer. This has led to speculation about Jin potentially taking on a role in training his fellow bandmates. It is reported that Jimin and Jungkook will commence their basic training from December 12.
In parallel, RM and V are slated to enter the Nonsan Training Center on December 11 for their respective training programs. The meticulous planning and coordination around their enlistment reflect the band’s commitment to fulfilling their national duty while navigating their global music careers.
The month of September witnessed SUGA embarking on his mandatory public service obligations. Currently stationed in Wonju, Gangwon province, J-hope has assumed the role of an assistant instructor at the New Recruit Training Center.
It’s worth noting that SUGA’s military service differs from his bandmates due to a shoulder ailment, leading him to serve in the public sector. As BTS members gradually transition into their military roles, fans globally express support and anticipation for the day they will reunite on the stage after completing their service commitments.
