Jin, a BTS member, sincerely asked fans not to come to the training center where he would be enlisting.
Jin (real name Kim Seokjin), the oldest member of BTS, is reportedly enlisting at the Army Division Recruit Training Center next month. However, before leaving, he asked ARMY, the BTS fandom, not to come to the training center.
Specifically, on November 24, BTS Jin said via the Weverse fan community:An unsolicited article has been published, but our ARMYs are not coming to the training facility“.
He also clarified the request and expressed his concerns, saying: “Since there are many people besides me, it can be dangerous due to the crowd.
It was previously reported that Jin would enlist on December 13 and stay for five weeks at the recruit training center in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province. The media also wrote that after this period of training, the male idol would be sent to the frontline unit.
Jin recently returned to Korea after performing his single “The Astronaut” with pop band Coldplay in Buenos Aires, Argentina. While waiting for his military enlistment, the BTS member remains active in various activities ranging from music to broadcasting.
Born in 1992, the oldest member of BTS, Jin, received the approval of the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism to defer his military enlistment in accordance with the revised 2020 Military Service Act. In October, Jin applied for the cancellation of his enlistment deferment and will begin his service in December.
