btsThe team has released a statement confirming that all seven members of the band will perform their mandatory South Korean military service, after years of speculation. The group says they are “honored to serve.”

In South Korea, all able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 28 must complete between 18 and 21 months of military service. In 2020, the law was revised to allow those who have excelled in the field of folk art to postpone enlistment until their 30th birthday. Until recently, the Korean government was still discussing possible alternatives for the band, including exchanging military service for ambassadorship. to work.

In the end, BTS has decided to enlist like all their compatriots. The oldest member Jin will be the first to join after completing his solo music promotion schedule later this month. Although the exact release date for the 29-year-old’s new music is still unknown, he announced on Saturday that he would be releasing a single soon.

All the other members are expected to follow Jin’s example after completing their own individual projects. According to BIGHIT MUSIC’s statement, the band will only resume group activities “around 2025 after their service commitment.”

BTS just held a massive concert in Busan on Saturday, in support of the city’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo. The concert was attended by more than 50,000 fans and around 50 million people watched in a live broadcast across the world. Throughout, the band members assured their fans that this would not be the last time they performed together and vehemently asked them to “trust them”.

In the statement, BIGHIT doubles down on this sentiment by referring to BTS’s most recent single “Yet To Come,” saying that “it’s a promise” and that “there is much more to come in the coming years from BTS.”
