Because of her BTS prejudice, Jin, the actress and beauty queen was unable to conceal her kilig in her most recent Instagram Reel.
The South Korean artist has made available a collection of images taken on the set of his “The Astronaut” music video.
When one of those images appeared on screen in Megan’s video, she smiled in the prettiest, giddiest way possible.
“Forda kilig pag may bagong post ang tannies,” she captioned.
“[Eh] kamusta naman ang puso ko pag sunod-sunod pa ang post ng pictures,” she added.
Following that, she urged her fans to “carry on streaming #TheAstronaut and support Jin.”
“The Astronaut” is Jin’s debut solo single, a dreamy song about his love for the BTS ARMY. The singer worked with Coldplay and was able to perform the song with them in Argentina.
With her adoring husband Mikael Daez, Megan had already visited the HYBE Insight museum in Seoul. In Busan, the couple also attended the BTS Yet to Come concert. • Niká Roque/JCB, GMA Integrated News
BTS ARMY has a “sense of pride” as it prepares to serve in the military
BTS fans were proud and upbeat as they anticipated what the upcoming few years would hold for each of the group’s members after being concerned about the possibility of mandatory military duty for the biggest K-pop group in the world.
By the age of 28, all ｍen in South Korea must enlist and serve for a minimum of 18 months.
The South Korean government made a new exception just three days before BTS’ oldest member, Kim Seok-jin, aka Jin, turned 28. Jin was initially expected to be called up by December 2020.
The so-called BTS Law permits K-pop celebrities, who make major economic contributions to the nation and have been honored with the Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit, to put off starting their military careers until they are 30 years old.
Before turning 30 on December 4, Jin is anticipated to enlist. As a farewell to his fans, he released his solo single “The Astronaut,” which was co-written by the British rock band Coldplay, in late October.
It is anticipated that the band’s other late-20s members will soon follow in his footsteps.
The septet will reunite “as a group again around 2025,” according to their record label, Big Hit Music, after serving their terms in the armed forces. Some of its members will work on solo projects in the interim.
The band’s ARMY, or ｍillions of dejected fans, have been venting their sorrow on social media, but many also think this will be an opportunity for the band to develop as artists.
“When I got to know BTS will go to do their military service, I felt a bit of relief,” Alice Kim, a 28-year-old ARMY member from Gyeonggi-do province in South Korea, told Arab News.
“It is sad that we are not likely to get a new BTS album in the next few years. However, it is exciting to see them pursuing their solo careers. We are ready to appreciate their works as solo artists.”
The K-pop group, also known as the Bangtan Sonyeondan or Bulletproof Boy Scouts, made their debut in 2013 and are currently among the most successful musicians in the music business.
With their cheery songs and social efforts focused at encouraging the younger generation, they have gained international popularity and influence in the past ten years.
“In my opinion, BTS will grow and develop as an artist during the next few years,” Kim said. “I will keep an eye on them and happily see how they become great artists.”
The news of the boys’ enlistment, according to ARMY member Aparmita Das, 27, from Meghalaya in northeast India, “filled all ARMYs with a deep sense of pride.”
“We are all heartbroken but at the same time proud, hopeful, and excited about each member’s solo projects. 2025 is not far away,” Das told Arab News.
“BTS is one, but they are also seven distinct individuals, each with their own personalities, and they must each discover their particular skills, interests, and dislikes.”
Others, like Jakarta-based ARMY member Agnes Anya, plan to save money during the stars’ military service in order to watch them in person once they are back together.
“Right now, me and my ARMY friends are saving up together,” she said.
“Our aim is to give each other peer pressure to save up enough money to watch BTS together in Korea in 2025.”
