BTS’ Jin to be back from military service June 12

Seoul, June 2 (UNI) K-pop superstar Jin (Kim Seok-jin) will be discharged from the mandatory military service in another 10 days, his agency said Sunday.

The vocalist of the boy group BTS will be discharged June 12 and will participate in the annual BTS Festa at the Seoul Sports Complex in southern Seoul on June 13, Yonhap quoted BigHit Music as saying.

The agency said the event was organised at Jin’s suggestion, as he wanted to spend meaningful time with ARMY, the BTS’ fandom. The “hug event” will be held for 1,000 fans, the agency said.

The 2024 BTS Festa will kick off next week in celebration of the popular boy group’s debut, with many fans eagerly awaiting the return of band members currently serving in the military.

Jin was the first BTS member to join the military in December 2022 with his last release being “The Astronaut”. The group’s six other members — J-hope, Suga, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook — are all currently enlisted.

In South Korea, all able-bodied men are required to serve between 18 and 21 months in the military.
