This amazing ride has only just begun.
It’s been less than 24 hours since Jin bid his BTS comrades farewell, but a lot has happened in ARMY’s “Mikromosmos.” Here’s a quick rundown of everything you might have missed.
Jin’s “Curtain Call”
Jin sent one last message to ARMY ogt the Weverse app before enlisting. Some idols may have expressed themselves through prose, but not this comedic monarch. Gamer Jin made fans laugh instead of cry by referring to a League of Legends character’s “Curtain Call” ability.
This is your curtain call.
(I ᴡanted to try saying this when I leave for the military.)
(This is what game character “Jhin” says).
Military Entrance Ceremonies
BIGHIT MUSIC requested that fans and media refrain from attending the entrance ceremony in order to respect all recruits and their families in a statement issued prior to Jin’s enlistment.
This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
We want to thank you for your continued support of BTS and would like to update you on Jin’s upcoming enlistment into the military.
Jin will fulfill his required time with the military by enlisting in the army. Please note that we will not be holding any kind of official event on the day of his recruitment.
The entrance ceremony is a time to be observed by military personnel and their families only. In order to prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, we ask fans to please refrain from visiting the site. Instead, we ask you to keep your heartwarming words of support and farewell in your hearts.
We also advise you not to get adversely affected by purchasing ᴜnauthorized tours or product packages illegаlly using artist IP. Our company will take necessary action against any attempts at commercial activity making unаuthorized use of such IP.
We ask for your continued love and support for Jin until he finishes his military service and comes back. Our company will also strive to provide every support he needs during this time.

Jin came in the 5th Infantry Division in Yeoncheon County, Gyeonggi Province, around 1:45 PM (KST) in one of six black KIAs. The other automobiles were filled with Jin’s family members who had come to see him leave.

Following the ceremony, BTS tweeted, “Our hyung! Go, and return safely! “I adore you!” she exclaimed, sharing two group shots.
In one, the members posed beautifully for the camera with Jin.
They playedfully touched Jin’s freshly shaved head with the other. For good fortune?
Military Service of Suga
Now that Jin’s military service has begun, all eyes are on Suga, the next-oldest BTS member.
According to Ilgan Sports, Suga has postponed his military service until the end of 2023, and due to his shoulder ailment, he would most likely enlist as a public servant rather than an active duty soldier.
J-Hope and Jin were seen in two of the images eating a lovely supper together. Jin prepared the food himself!
