On October 17, HYBE dropped a bomb in the form of official news regarding BTS‘s enlistment. They revealed that Jin will be cancelling his request to delay his mandatory service and the rest of the members will enlist afterwards in order of age.
BTS will only reconvene as a complete group in 2025.
Check out some of the most relatable tweets from ARMYs about this below.

2. When Jin’s words in the Busan concert were put in a new light
He said, “I kept thinking that this will be the last concert that we’ll be doing and we don’t know when we’ll be doing another. Guys, I don’t know when we will tour again but if we have one, you will all show up, right?”
seokjin's ending ment now hits harder. it was so honest and also hopeful. when you guys will have a tour again, we will be there. I love you @BTS_twt

9. When we were sure BTS will have a lot in store for fans
for them to reconvene by 2025 that means all of them will have enlisted by mid 2024 and by that time jin and most likely the rest of hyung line will be back from service and within this 3 yr gap, all will be able to do solo and unit works together like trust me we will not starve

10. When we realized the time apart could have been longer
I’ve been imagining the worst case scenarios like what if the tannies decided to go one by one? 😭 what if it takes 5 years to see them again? god. 2025? just over 2 years from now, that’s the gap between a decently hardworking pop artist’s album releases. I’ll take it. thank fk

12. And when we hoped BTS understood the hearts of ARMYs
all i wish is bangtan to know that armys are with them forever. like when we said forever we meant forever. idgaf about anything aside from their happiness and state of mind.
