J-Hope is now the second member of the BTS ARMY to enlist in the Korean military, making today another emotional one for the group.
J-Hope posted a handwritten statement on Instagram on April 17, the day before he left, with the words “I will return healthy and well,” and a picture of his new, combat-ready buzz cut. Additionally, he shared two photos on Weverse with the statement, “I love you ARMY I’ll be back safely!On the same day, Jimin and J-Hope went out together. Jimin shared a snapshot of the two on Weverse with just a simple purple heart emoji as a message.
Big Hit issued a statement on April 1 informing the public about J-Hope’s impending enlistment and requesting that they respect his privacy. According to a statement from the label (via Soompi), “We thank all the fans for their continued support for BTS and would like to update you on J-Hope’s upcoming enlistment in the military.”
Please be aware that there will be no official event on the day of his admission, Big Hit said. Only military troops and their families are permitted to attend the entrance ceremony. To avoid any problems that.
The site is not recommended for fans to attend because of the potential for crowding. Instead, we ask that you hold your kind words of encouragement and good-bye in your hearts. I’m grateful.
Fans abstained from J-Hope’s entrance ceremony as per Big Hit’s request, but his BTS bandmates were present to bid him farewell. Surprisingly, Jin (who enrolled in December 2022) and Jimin (who joined in December 2022) were also present. The group tweeted a picture from their farewell with the remark, “J-Hope, love you!”
