In South Korea, all able-bodied men are required to serve in the military for about two years. In a statement posted on the fan community forum Weverse, the band’s management company BigHit Music said the septet hopes to reconvene as a unit around 2025 following their service commitment.
According to the company, other members — RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — plan to carry out their military service based on their own individual plans.
