According to industry sources on the 30th, Jimin and Jungkook are set to enlist together on December 12th and will join the new recruit training unit where Jin is currently serving as an instructor. Jin is stationed at the Army’s 5th Infantry Division in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province.
This news has sparked a wave of positive reactions from fans, with comments like, “It’s heartwarming to think BTS reuniting in the army,” “Jin will probably tease them a lot,” and “I was worried, but it’s reassuring to know Jin will be there to look after them.”
After the enlistment news broke out, Jungkook took to Weverse to share thoughts about his 18-month hiatus, expressing hesitance in asking fans to wait but promising to return to the stage as a more mature artist. Jin, known for his sense of humor, lightened the mood by commenting “ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ” (laughter) on Jungkook’s lengthy, sentimental post, raising anticipation for their reunion as instructor and rookies.
On the other hand, V is set to head to the Nonsan Army Training Center on the 11th and has applied to join the Capital Defense Command’s special mission unit. RM is also scheduled to enlist on the same day, undergoing basic military training at the Nonsan training center before his unit assignment.
Meanwhile, Jin, J-Hope, and Suga are already fulfilling their military duties. Jin enlisted last December, J-Hope in April, serving as an instructor at Baekho Recruit Training Center. Suga entered the military this September and is currently serving as a public service worker. Jin and J-Hope are expected to be discharged next year, with the full group reunion anticipated post-June 2025.
