BTS Jin, “Please refrain from visiting the field to prevent accidents”

Jin, a member of the group BTS, quietly joins the army without any official event.

On December 6, Big Hit Music, the agency of BTS, announced through Weverse, a BTS fan communication platform, “Jin will fulfill his required time with the military by enlisting in the army. Please note that we will not be holding any kind of official event on the day of his recruitment.”

The company added, “The entrance ceremony is a time to be observed by military personnel and their families only. In order to prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, we ask fans to please refrain from visiting the site. Instead, we ask you to keep your heartwarming words of support and farewell in your hearts.”

They then said, “We ask for your continued love and support for Jin until he finishes his military service and comes back.”

Jin will enlist as an active duty soldier on December 13th. He is expected to receive a self-deployment after undergoing recruit training at a training center.

Considering that congestion, safety, and accidents might happen when so many fans flock to the enlistment site, Jin and his agency did not officially disclose details of his enlistment, such as the time and place.

Jin was born in December 1992 and turned 30 years old this year. He was supposed to enlist at the end of last year, but was given a one-year extension until the end of 2022 as BTS received the benefits from the partial revision of the Military Service Act, which allows excellent individuals in the field of sports and popular culture & arts to postpone their military service until the age of 30 for the promotion of national prestige) in December 2020 after being awarded the Hwagwan Order of Culture Merit.

Earlier, Jin revealed that he would enter the front-line unit by himself. Jin went on the fan communication platform Weverse on November 13th and shared the information with fans. An ARMY asked, “It’s your birthday next month. Are you excited?”. In response, Jin said, “No. I would be on the front line by then”.
