BTS Member J-Hope Enlists in Military
BTS artist j-hope began the enlistment process for his stint with the South Korean military.
Jung Ho-seok, applied to end his postponement of the mandatory 18-month service.
“We will inform you of further updates in due course,” BIGHIT Music wrote on Weverse.
They also said "We ask you for your continued love and support for j-hope until he completes his military service and safely returns.”
J hope is 29 years old.
He follows his fellow BTS star Jin, 30, who began his mandatory service in December.
South Korea requires most men to enlist in its military by age 28, but entertainers can push back their stints until they’re 30.
Last year, BTS announced a hiatus until 2025 so its seven members can fulfill their military obligations and pursue solo projects.
On Friday, j-hope will release a single, “On the Street,” that he wrote.
Last month, Suga became the first BTS member to announce a solo tour.
