Is Suga the next?
Soon after the eldest member Jin enlisted for military service, the news about the service of the second member Suga also surfaced on the internet. While Jin started his military duties already, it is being said that Min Yoongi will be reportedly exempted from the same because of his shoulder injury. Now, according to some of the latest reports, the BTS rapper will carry out his mandatory military service as a social service agent. They said that the 29-year-old rapper was assigned to be a social service agent instead of an active-duty soldier like Jin. However, the details of his enlistment remain unknown.
Replying to the reports, BigHit Music, the agency which manages BTS and its artists including Suga, said that it is difficult to confirm anything regarding his upcoming enlistment at the moment. The agency further added that the company and the members hope that the Bangtan Boys can promote as a full group in the year 2025.
