Reaction on BTS Members’ Decision to Enlist
Although they acknowledged the impending development, a number of BTS ARMY members vented their dismay on X (formerly Twitter). A fan expressed their sadness over the enlistment of Joon, Tae, Jimin, and JK, but also reflected on the fact that this marked the end of the age of bighit enlistment notices. An upbeat commenter said, “The next “hey this is bighit music” announcement will be jin finishing his service.” BIGHIT’s decision to announce enlistment immediately following concerts is sick asf, according to a third writer. “It is merely a pre-notice, we still have a lot of time together.” was another user’s hopeful message.
For those who are unaware, the Korean government requires all males to serve in the military for twenty months from the age of eighteen to twenty-eight. Jin and J-Hope will finish their military service in 2025. They began their enlistment last year. Earlier this year, Suga started enlisting in the military. Although each member of BTS has been putting out individual albums in the years leading up to their enlistment, the boy band is projected to reunite in 2025.
THE SOONER THEY GO THE SOONER THE COME BACK THE SOONER THEY GO THE SOONER THE COME BACK THE SOONER THEY GO THE SOONER THE COME BACK

This is probably why Jk during his endment was saying he was going to miss ARMY and had a look in his eyes. Also probably why he also chose to sing Magic Shop 😭😭😭 I’m not okay, but at least they’ll all be together again June/July 2025 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
