Upon finishing his training, V will reportedly be assigned to the Special Mission Unit of the ROK Army’s Capital Defense Command, as he has reportedly applied for the position.
On December 11, RM will enlist as a regular active-duty soldier and start basic training at the Nonsan Centre.

When word got out that the Love Me Again singer had applied for a top-tier position, her legion of admirers wasted no time expressing their pride online. A high IQ and strong mental ability are prerequisites for recruitment in such a wing, according to some fans whose loved ones work there.
He is so cool for this. Always defying the norm. I know he is tougher physically and mentally than what he lets on and he will definitely win hearts and nail the training in the military. This is Kim Taehyung we are talking about. Nothing he does is average. Makes me proud.
