Jin, the first member of BTS to enroll in the military, has released new photos sporting a new buzz cut prior to his induction. He will enter the military on December 13.
Kim Seok Jin, nicknamed BTS member Jin, is preparing to enter South Korea’s mandatory military service. Prior to his enlistment, the musician shared selfies of himself on the fan forum Weverse in his most recent army-approved attire. He went for an incredibly short buzz cut and donned a standard black T-shirt.
A member of the BTS Army, in response to Jin’s latest photo, tweeted, “How can he still seem so beautiful?” “Indeed, still the cutest,” chimed in another. Also, someone stated, “No matter what happens, I am PROUD of you, will always think of you, and will continually pray for you! Come back safely. I love you, Kim Seokjin, each and every day and forever.”

Kim Seok Jin revealed last month that he will join the military on December 13. According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, the Astronaut singer will undergo five weeks of training at the recruit training center in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do. After completing his training, he will be assigned to the army’s frontline unit. In total, he will serve for 18 months, and other BTS members, including RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, will eventually follow in his footsteps. Before reconvening in 2025, each member will complete their required military service.
BTS’s agency, BigHit Music, already issued a statement regarding Jin’s military duty. The assertion read, “Jin will complete his military obligation by enlisting in the military. Please be advised that no official event will be held on the day of his recruiting.”
“The entrance ceremony is reserved solely for service members and their families. In order to prevent any crowding-related difficulties, we ask that fans refrain from visiting the location. Instead, we urge that you retain your supportive and parting words in your hearts. Please continue to love and support Jin until he completes his military service and returns. Our organization will also make every effort to provide him with the assistance he requires at this time “it ended.
Reports indicate that military authorities will take additional safety precautions during Jin’s enlistment at the military training center. Jin made his solo debut in October with the single The Astronaut before performing his national duty.
