BigHit Music issued a statement in August
Last month, BigHit Music said that Suga, whose real name is Min Yoongi, had started the military enlistment process. He will be the third member of the BTS to fulfil his mandatory duty. The agency shared the announcement on Weverse, a day after the BTS rapper concluded his D-Day concert in Seoul.
The statement read, “We would like to inform our fans that Suga has initiated the military enlistment process by applying for the termination of his enlistment postponement. We will inform you of further updates in due course. We ask you for your continued love and support for Suga until he completes his military service and safely returns. Our company will spare no effort in providing support for our artist.”
Currently, Jin and J-Hope are already serving in the military. Other members of the group who will soon join them are RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook. BTS hopes to reconvene as a group around 2025 following their service commitment.
