On December 13, BTS member Jin enlisted in the military for his required 18-month service, becoming the first member of the group to do so. According to reports, he was scheduled to enrol in the basic military training there for 5–6 weeks after arriving at the Yeoncheon base camp in Gyeonggi-do. Jin shared his first selfie with the public while wearing his military uniform in a recent update from the Korean military app.
Fans and well-wishers of Kim Seeokjin were able to see his first selfie taken from the base 10 days after he started his military service. Fans noticed how his buzz cut appears to have grown prematurely as he wore his trademark camouflage outfit. Jin gave the camera a small smile and appeared to be every bit the attractive man he is.
This is one of the few updates that will be shared as an active duty soldier. His name and position were displayed on his uniform as “11th Division 2nd Platoon Team 5”, his number 46, his complete name in Korean (Kim Seokjin), and then 92, which could have been his birth year, 1992.
The eldest BTS member, who is also one of the friendliest and most hospitable, received a lot of support from the BTS Army. Prior to enlisting, Jin made his solo debut with the release of the album “The Astronaut,” on which he collaborated with the English band Coldplay. Jin even travelled to Argentina to perform the song’s world premiere at the band’s Buenos Aires concert. In June 2024, Jin’s military obligations are anticipated to be formally terminated.
