All the fans are eagerly waiting for BTS’ upcoming Yet to Come concert in Busan. In the midst of all this, RM and J-Hope have given a slight hint to everyone about what to expect from the upcoming event, the first being the ‘Run BTS’ song. On October 8, 2022, the Septet proved its presence again at The Fact Music Awards 2022 with seven awards, including a ‘Daesang’ or grand prize for the fifth consecutive year. As the members climbed up the stage seven times, J-Hope revealed in one of the speeches about the group working hard by ‘running’ forward. Not only that but the group’s leader RM was also seen grooving over some funky moves that the Army is now speculating to be a hint of the choreography for ‘Run BTS.’
Talking about Run BTS, it is one of the three songs that the Grammy-nominated winners added to their anthology album Proof. It is a diss track that shows the group members rising above all odds and struggles in almost a decade-long journey of ‘running’ forward with their dreams. We can also hear one of the verses where Suga raps about how the group has no idea about how they became a huge success as all they have done in the past 10 years is to run hard.
When asked for a hint for the Busan concert, hobi said "Might kinda run hard right" to namjoon.

BTS’ military enlistment
Another hot topic of discussion for the past few weeks is regarding BTS’ military enlistment, which has a huge question mark attached to it even now. Latest reports suggest that South Korea’s military may force the Septet into joining mandatory military duties. For the unversed, the group comprises RM, Jin, Jimin, V, Jungkook, J-Hope, and Suga. Now, one of the most debated topics in South Korea is back in the news. Talking about Jin, the eldest member of the group, will turn 30 this December and is already expected to face enlistment earlier next year. According to the latest reports, Lee Ki Sik, the commissioner of the Military Manpower Administration, recently told lawmakers that it is ‘desirable’ for BTS to fulfill military duties and ensure fairness in the country’s military service.
According to South Korean law, all able-bodied men must perform 18-21 months of military service. However, the law also provides special exemptions for dancers, musicians, or athletes who have won top prizes in specific competitions to enhance national prestige.
