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.

Following the company’s instruction, fans should not attend the induction ceremony. A quiet enlistment is desired and fans should respect that. Previously, the company already indicated that they will not be able to tell fans the exact date, but that J-Hope was preparing to leave for the army.
