BTS Enlisting Together in 2022? Big Hit Music Responds
There's a possibility that BTS will carry out their mandatory military service all together at once—next year
ARMY, what are your thoughts on BTS enlisting together next year because it might just happen!
Today, April 21, an investigative report by Leading Investment & Securities about HYBE was published where research analyst Yoo Sung Man wrote: "It is predicted that the BTS members will enlist in the military simultaneously before mid-2022. Considering the effect of the content that will be pre-produced ahead of their enlistments, the actual period of inactivity will be around one year.” To date, the period of service for active-duty soldiers is one year and six months.
Last year, the Ministry of National Defense promulgated an amendment to the military service law that makes outstanding individuals working in the pop culture and arts industry eligible to defer their military enlistment. While it is still to be confirmed that BTS is eligible for this law, it's important to note that the oldest member Jin will be able to postpone his enlistment until the end of 2022.
Following this report, a source from Big Hit Music made a statement via Xportsnews: “We have nothing to tell you besides what the artists have shared.”
