Big Hit Music has confirmed that RM, V, Jimin, and Jungkook of BTS will be enlisting in the army soon, and there will be “no official event” on the day of their mandatory services.

In an official notice on fan community platform Weverse on Tuesday, Dec. 5, Big Hit said the BTS members will be “enlisting in the army,” where RM and V will be “enlisting according to their respective procedures.” Jimin and Jungkook, meanwhile, are set to enlist together.


“Please note that there will be no official event on the day of their entry. The entrance ceremony is a time to be observed by military personnel and their families only,” the label added. “To prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, fans are advised to refrain from visiting the site.”


Big Hit also warned against those “purchasing unauthorized tours or product packages” as it’s a form of illegal use of the group’s IP address. “Our company will take necessary action against any attempts at commercial activity making unauthorized use of such IP.”

K-pop insiders previously reported that RM and V will enlist on Dec. 11, while Jimin and Jungkook will start fulfilling their mandatory services on Dec. 12. Big Hit, however, has yet to confirm the rumors, as of this writing.

“We ask for your continued love and support for RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook until they complete their military service and return. Our company will also strive to provide all the support they need during this time,” it added.

Jin is the first BTS member to enlist in December 2022, followed by J-Hope in April 2023, and Suga in September 2023.

All able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 28 in South Korea are required to enlist in the military for 18 to 21 months.

This means that BTS members might complete their mandatory enlistments by 2025, which is said to be the resumption of their official activities as a seven-member group.
