All BTS members including RM, J-Hope, Suga, Jimin, V, and Jungkook accompanied Jin ahead of his departure for military enlistment. Not only that but all of them also shared sweet send-off messages for the eldest member of the group on their respective Instagram handles. RM further recalled what happened when the group dropped Jin at the camp.

Here is what he told KBS News 9, “Jin didn’t talk much. I think he had a lot on his mind, and when we went to the [training grounds], he said like the eldest member he is, ‘I’ll be back safely. I’ll let you know how it is after experiencing it first.”

He further said, “A lot has happened until now, both as a group and individually, and it feels as if a chapter has passed. It was a moment that had to come, and since it was a moment we waited for, it really felt like we were experiencing the turning of a page in [the life of] BTS. I also have a complex mix of feelings, but I’m calm, and I think Jin is doing well at the training centre, so I’m waiting [for his return] in a calm and cool manner.”

Other BTS members

Talking about Jin, he joined the military service on December 13, 2022, a few days after celebrating his birthday. After him, the other members of the Septet will also join military duties one after the other. So, BTS is estimated to return as a full group again in around 2025. RM further shared that since they can’t do anything physically during the service, he puts his faith in the group fandom, ARMY present worldwide and continues to believe in them.
