BTS's oldest member, Jin will begin military service soon, their agency revealed Monday (October 17).

Jin, 29, has put off his service as long as possible and faces a full stint when he turns 30 in December.

"Jin will cancel the request to delay enlistment in late October 2022 and follow the Military Manpower Administration's relevant procedures for enlistment," BTS’ management group HYBE said in a regulatory filing.

“All other members will also serve the mandatory military duty according to their respective plans,” the filing added. The group will come together again in 2025.
