Earlier in the day, the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that Jin is enlisting on December 13 at the recruit training center in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do. He will receive the five-week training before being deployed to the frontline unit. The singer will then undergo 18 months of compulsory training. A few fans calculated the duration and realised that Jin will be discharged on June 13, 2024, exactly 11 years after he along with his fellow BTS members made their debut as K-pop idols.
While fans are heartbroken that he will be off to his military training, they are seeing the silver lining that he will celebrate his birthday with fans and go. “At least jin can celebrate his birthday with us," a heartbroken fan said. “We have to give best birthday to Jin and best gift would be to not show up at the camp as he requested," added another.
During a live session last month, Jin revealed that he planned to enlist in June this year but delayed his plans for the Busan concert. “I originally planned to enlist in June but in order to be courteous to fans, I waited until our October performance (in Busan). I didn’t want a tearful performance so my enlistment announcement was delayed," he said.
