BIGHIT MUSIC has released the video of BTS Jin‘s enlistment in the Korean military, and it’s even more heartbreaking than we could have ever imagined.

Our hyung! Go and come back safely! Love you!
That alone was enough to make ARMYs emotional. Yet, the footage from BTS’s send-off of their hyung literally has us in tears.

In the newly released Bangtan Bomb, “Jin’s Entrance Ceremony,” we got to see each member’s personal goodbyes to Jin. From all the members touching his shaved head…

Everyone also got their own individual photo with Jin besides the group photo. Jimin already changed his Weverse profile picture to his.

Some members, such as leader RM, also expressed their thoughts about Jin’s enlistment. While he has some concerns for Jin, he knows it’s also just part of every Korean man’s life.
🐨 im worried about jin hyung who doesnt like the cold but his younger brothers will follow him soon. it doesnt feel great to send hyung off but hyung does well wherever he goes, i believe he'll do well ! it doesnt feel good but its something everyone

In the end, when Jin finally joined the lineup of men enlisting that day, the camera showed that he was the last one. He had taken the longest to say goodbye to his loved ones (in this case, BTS).
Jin being the last to line up because he took the longest out of all the men enlisting to say goodbye to his loved ones…don't even talk to me rn… pic.twitter.com/rGnzacilXj
