BTS & ARMY forever. With the news of BTS’ military service, many ARMY are asking: When will the rest of BTS do their Korean military service?

On October 17, 2022, BTS’ label BigHit Entertainment announced that the oldest member Jin will enlist in the military via the fan platform Weverse and their official social media platforms. The statement said, “The members of BTS are currently moving forward with plans to fulfill their military service. Group member Jin will initiate the process as soon as his schedule for his solo release is concluded at the end of October. He will then follow the enlistment procedure of the Korean government. Other members of the group plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.” The company added, “Both the company and the members of BTS are looking forward to reconvening as a group again around 2025 following their service commitment.”

Bangtan Sonyeondan, better known as BTS or The Bangtan Boys, was formed in 2013 with members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. The boyband captured the heart of millions with their fanbase affectionately called ARMY, which stands for Adorable Representative MC of Youth. The K-pop group’s accomplishments catapulted them to the top of the Billboard Charts, two Grammy nominations and multiple American Music Awards and  MTV Video Music Awards wins. They were also named TIME’s Entertainer of the Year 2020. In 2022, BTS released an anthology album of their near decade-long career called Proof. The single from the album, “Yet to Come” promises that there will be more amazing things to come ahead for BTS. The septet just finished their concert in Busan for a showcase for the bid for the 2030 World Expo, and it might be the last time that they perform together in a while.

Why is BTS going to the military? In South Korea, every able-bodied man must enlist for military service by the age of 30 and serve for at least 2 years. Some exceptions were made for men who have won Olympic Gold medals for the country or for classical musicians. Before Jin’s enlistment, the South Korean government debated on if BTS should go to the military for their large impact on Korea’s spread of culture and their contributions to the country’s overall economy. Some lawmakers said the musicians’ contribution to the country’s global recognition should qualify them for an exemption, but many also opposed that decision.

Since Jin will be turning 30 in December, he will be the first member to do his mandatory military enlistment. According to BigHit, each member will “carry out their individual plans” before they enlist.
