BTS’s Jin Debuts His Newly Shaved Head As He Prepares For Enlistment

ARMYs wish him well as they react to the new look 💜

BTS held their free Yet To Come In Busan concert on October 15, performing to over 55,000 fans at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium while nearly 50 million ARMYs tuned in from home.

After the concert, BIGHIT MUSIC announced that the group would be proudly moving forward with their military enlistment plans over the next few years, with Jin becoming the first member to enlist.


Shortly after the announcement, it was confirmed that BTS’s Jin had formally withdrawn his request to delay his military service and would be enlisting as soon as he received his notice.

His enlistment date was confirmed at the end of last month to be December 13, with reports stating that he would be completing five weeks of boot camp before being deployed to the front lines.

Jin filled the final months leading up to his enlistment with many precious moments, leaving ARMYs with the gift of his solo release “The Astronaut” after debuting the song at Coldplay‘s concert in Argentina.

As December 13 quickly approaches, ARMYs have been wondering when Jin will debut his shaved head for his upcoming enlistment after being seen with long hair as recently as yesterday at T-ARA Jiyeon‘s wedding.
