BTS’s J-Hope Debuts His Military Buzzcut As He Prepares For Enlistment
Over the last few months, the members of BTS have kept busy working on solo projects and other ventures. Following their Yet To Come In Busan concert in October, BIGHIT MUSIC announced that the group would move forward with their military enlistment plans, with each member enlisting over the next few years.
Jin was the first to go, making fans emotional after sharing images of his military buzzcut and many updates after entering training.
Jin is the group’s oldest member, leading fans to believe that Suga would be the next member to formally withdraw his request to delay his military service. However, just days after Suga’s first solo world tour was announced, it was shared that J-Hope would be the next member to enlist.
This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
We thank all the fans for your continued support for BTS and would like to update you on j-hope’s upcoming enlistment into the military.
j-hope will fulfill his required time with the military by enlisting in the army. Please note that there will be no official event on the day of his entry.
The entrance ceremony is a time to be observed by military personnel and their families only. To prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, fans are advised to refrain from visiting the site. Instead, we ask you to keep your heartwarming words of support and farewell in your hearts.
We also advise you not to get adversely affected by purchasing unauthorized tours or product packages that illegally use the artist’s IP. Our company will take necessary action against any attempts at commercial activity making unauthorized use of such IP.
We ask for your continued love and support for j-hope until he completes his military service and returns. Our company will also strive to provide all the support he needs during this time.
Korean media later revealed his enlistment date would be April 18, and fans were given a preview of J-Hope’s military buzzcut look after a surprise live stream with V and Jungkook. The star had cut his previously long hair to a much shorter style, although not as short as the shaved head look.
