Another fan said, "On his birthday this year he will be on the " front line- military" meaning: doing hard work most important work, defending or achieving something ( it's basically a way to say he will be in the military { doesn't sound like he's too thrilled about it.. but just IMO."

"This tore me up! I'm sorry I just can't do this y'all," mentioned a sad and disheartened fan.

According to a report in Allkpop, once Jin gets trained for 5 weeks in the frontline army base, he will be dispatched to a different army base as he will be enlisted as a general infantry. But Jin might be dispatched to another frontline base for the rest of his service because reportedly rumours say a person is likely to be stationed at another frontline army base if he gets his basic military training in a frontline base.
