Countdown to Greatness : BTS’ Suga Poised for Mandatory Military Service in South Korea!

Suga from BTS will soon begin his conscription into the South Korean military.

Big Hit Music released a statement on Weverse that 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 beg for your ongoing love and support for SUGA until he completes his military service and returns safely, the statement read. Our business will make every attempt to support our artist.

The statement was made just one day after the K-pop artist’s August D tour in support of his first album D-Day came to an end. Three performances at Seoul’s KSPO Dome from August 4 to 6 marked the end of the most recent leg.

After finishing his set, Suga made a live appearance on Weverse to address the ARMY. He said, “I came to say hi after my last gig. After a fan asked about his tattoo, he proudly displayed it, but the “Haegeum” performer broke down in tears over the end of his tour.

“I believe that my recent tour was enjoyable. I don’t cry at all,” he declared before reminiscing on BTS’ journey. “The last ten years passed like a movie. Then, I started crying.

Suga didn’t directly address his impending military duty, but he appeared to hint at delaying it. He informed the crowd, “I think saying’soon’ is a lie.” “Let’s meet up in 2025, alright? Please give it a moment. 2025. I’ll see you then.

All physically fit men between the ages of 18 and 28 are obliged by South Korean legislation to serve between 18 and 21 months in the military.

The Korean government grants exceptional exemptions to athletes, classical and traditional musicians, and ballet and other dancers if they have won top awards in those fields and have a particular level of renown, as reported by the Associated Press. Such benefits are not available to K-pop artists or other celebrities.

But after South Korea’s National Assembly modified its Military Service Act in 2020, allowing K-pop stars to put off enlisting until age 30, BTS was able to delay joining the army until that age.

The first BTS member to turn 30 and enrol in the South Korean army was Jin, who did so in late 2022.

J-Hope, 29, was the second member to start the military enlistment procedure in April.

The band previously stated that “both the company and members of BTS are looking forward to reconvening as a group again around 2025 following their service commitment,” as military service was looming for its members.

Suga’s debut solo album D-Day and the Disney+ documentary SUGA: Road to D-Day were both published in April. The latter showed the top-charting South Korean artist travelling from Seoul to cities like Tokyo and Las Vegas in search of inspiration for his debut album.

The BTS vocalist revealed his artistic process in the movie and allowed audiences to witness his most sensitive moments. It has been established that he struggled with writer’s block, talked about it with musicians, and drew inspiration from horrific experiences to write D-Day.
