Now, that day has come.
While BIGHIT MUSIC asked for everyone to respect Suga’s privacy and not attend any events regarding his enlistment, he did share his own statement. Suga penned a heartfelt letter to ARMYs via Weverse on his enlistment day.
Hello. It’s Suga.
I came to send my greetings!
I was able to safely come this far thanks to ARMYs.
And it’s finally time.
I will come back after faithfully finishing my service.
Please be careful as the seasons are changing to a chilly autumn.
Let’s all stay healthy and meet again in 2025!
ARMY!!!! I’m always thankful, and I always love you☺️
We wish Suga the best during his service! We will be waiting for the 2025 reunion.
