BTS Jin said, “Please refrain from visiting the field to prevent safety accidents.”
Jin (real name Kim Seok-jin, 30), a member of the group BTS, quietly joins the army without any official event.
On December 6, Big Hit Music, BTS’s agency, said on Weverse, a fan communication platform in BTS, “Jin will join the army as an active-duty soldier to fulfill his military duty.” “There is no separate official event on the day of admission to the boot camp,” he announced.
The agency said, “The entrance ceremony of the boot camp is a place where a large number of soldiers and their families are together. We ask fans to refrain from visiting the site to prevent safety accidents caused by on-site congestion. He said, “I ask you to be with me only with a warm heart and encouragement for Jin.”
“I ask for your support and love until the day Jin fulfills his military service obligations and returns healthy.” “We will also spare no effort and continuous support,” he added.
Jean will join the army on Dec. 13. He is expected to be deployed after receiving boot training at the training center.
Jin and his agency, who are parties to the enlistment, did not officially inform details such as the time and place of enlistment in preparation for concerns over congestion and safety accidents as many fans flocked to the enlistment site.
Jin was born in December 1992 and is 30 years old this year. Initially, the military service was due at the end of last year, but the BTS received a partial revision of the military service law in December 2020 based on the Hwagwan Order of Culture and Arts, and received a one-year delay until the end of 2022.
Jin said in person that he will enter the front-line unit. Jin communicated with fans ARMY through the fan communication platform Weverse on November 13. One fan asked, “It’s your birthday next month, are you excited?” and Jin said, “No… He posted a comment saying, “I’m on the front line.”
Meanwhile, Jean released her solo digital single “The Astronaut” on October 28 and topped domestic and international music charts.
Jin not only sang but also participated in writing the lyrics. He collaborated with the British band Coldplay as a lyricist and delivered infinite love to ARMY.
The following is the full text of the official position of the BTS agency.
