J-hope of BTS has become the second member of the boy band to enlist for mandatory military service on Sunday. The star has earlier applied for the cancellation of military postponement.
The BIGHIT MUSIC’s notice read, “This is BIGHIT MUSIC. We would like to inform our fans that j-hope has initiated the military enlistment process by applying for the termination of his enlistment postponement. We will inform you of further updates in due course. We ask you for your continued love and support for j-hope until he completes his military service and safely returns. Our company will spare no effort in providing support for our artist. Thank you.”
J-Hope takes advice from Jin
J-Hope talked to his fans about how Jin called and gave him advice after his military enlistment. “He called me the moment the notice was released like ‘J-Hooooope, I got the news!’ We talked about this and that stuff about the process and he gave me advice about stuff too,” the star said.
When a fans asked the star to go on live before getting enlisted, J-Hope replied, “Of course. Should I come after shaving my head? But that will be a little sad, right? It makes me sad if you guys say it’s a farewell greeting. It’s not a farewell. Personally, what makes me feel a little sad is that I won’t be able to cheer on all the members’ solos (in person), I’ll just cheer them on quietly. I’ve listened to Jimin’s main track, not all, so I’m really looking forward to (the release).”
J-Hope also had a message for the fans that were getting emotional. “It’s not a big deal I’ll go and come back quickly. I trust you (guys) whenever.. and you guys trust me, right? Trust you.. and trust me. Anyway, I’m not getting enlisted right away, that’s the fact. The comments look like they’re already sending me away, it’s not yet, we’ve only started the process. Even while I’m doing the military service, I’ve prepared stuff just for you so, as you know. I think of many things and prepare many things as always.”
