BTS' management label BIGHIT MUSIC recently shared a notice to fans that there will be no "official event" to mark the star's enlistment.


"Jin will fulfill his required time with the military by enlisting in the army," read a note from BIGHIT on BTS' Weverse. "Please note that we will not be holding any kind of official event on the day of his recruitment. 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."


'The Astronaut' singer entered the boot camp at Yeoncheon, a town near the tense border with North Korea, for five weeks of basic military training with other new conscript soldiers. The oldest BTS member accompanied the others as he enlisted in mandatory service.

For the unversed, every new military recruit must have his hair cut short before undergoing a five-week basic training programme at the start of their service. South Korea requires all able-bodied men in the country to serve at least 18 months in the armed forces.
