After years of speculation, it has been confirmed that K-Pop boyband, BTS, will be taking a hiatus from music and joining the South Korean military for national service. A statement released by the band’s management on 17 Oct. on Twitter reads, “BIGHIT MUSIC is proud to announce today that the members of BTS are currently moving forward with plans to fulfill their military service.”

All able-bodied men aged between 18 and 28 must serve for around two years in South Korea. It has been widely debated whether BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook would be given an exemption from the compulsory service, a move that has been granted for high-achieving sports stars and musicians. The band previously won a deferral in 2020, allowing BTS to delay their duties until the age of 30. This milestone has been fast approaching with the band’s ages ranging from 24-29. All seven members will be taking carrying out their military duty.

“BIGHIT MUSIC has focused to the milestone moment when it would be possible to respect the needs of the country and for these healthy young men to serve with their countrymen, and that’s now,” the statement continues. “Jin will initiate the process as soon as his schedule for his solo release is concluded at the end of October. He will then follow the enlistment procedure of the Korean government. Other members of the group plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.”

On 10 June, BTS released their anthology album, “Proof“, and four days later they released their final FESTA content, a video of the group gathering for dinner and drinks to celebrate their ninth anniversary. They then revealed they would be taking a hiatus to focus on various solo projects. However, the hiatus is looking likely to be a little longer than expected, with the group not expected to come together again until 2025. “Both the company and the members of BTS are looking forward to reconvening as a group again around 2025 following their service commitment,” the statement adds.

On 15 Oct, BTS held their highly-anticipated “Yet to Come” concert in Busan to promote South Korea’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo. Attended by 50,000 ARMYs in person, tens of millions of fans tuned in via live streams in further proof of BTS’s global success. “”Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” is more than a track from their latest album, it is a promise, there’s much more yet to come in the years ahead from BTS”, the statement ends.
