Recently, celebrating the release of his first solo single album, Jin expressed he felt it was unfair how much BTS received so much hate for the military enlistment issue.
He explained why the delayed the announcement for as much as they did despite coming into a decision much earlier this year, he said,
Jin also said the subject of enlistment was not easy to talk about but he feels better now that he has talked about it openly.
According to many industry officials on November 4, Jin officially announced his intention to cancel the postponement of military service by submitting a “cancellation of postponement of military service” to the Military Manpower Administration.
Jin, who was born in 1992, is 30 years old and his enlistment had been postponed until the end of this year after being recommended by the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism to postpone his enlistment under the revised Military Service Act in 2020. However, due to the submission of the “cancellation of the postponement of enlistment,” Jin is expected to join the army as soon as the enlistment notice is released.
A notice of enlistment usually comes out within three months after submission of the cancellation source, but it is known that if the number of people waiting for enlistment is small, they can join the military within two months. As a result, Jin is expected to join the military as early as this year.
Earlier, BTS’s agency, Big Hit Music, said, “Jin will apply for the cancellation of the postponement of his enlistment and follow the Military Manpower Administration’s enlistment process later. Other members will also perform their military service sequentially according to their plans.“
