Agency confirmation

BigHit Music, the agency associated with BTS, had also confirmed about Jin getting enlisted in the military earlier. The agency announced its position to one of the media outlets in South Korea on November 24, 2022. Here is what it stated, “It is difficult to confirm. We ask for your understanding.”

Jin’s confirmation

Jin has reportedly addressed the leaked announcement about him getting enlisted in the military. Here is what the BTS member wrote, “There’s an article out there that I hadn’t planned on being published. in any case, ARMYs, I ask that you please refrain from coming to the training center. There will be many other people there and it could get dangerous with a big crowd. Army I love you.” Although it comes as a shock to the army, most of them have sent their best regards to Jin ahead of his enlistment.
