However, all physically capable men in South Korea are required to spend at least 18 months in the military, and despite a long argument about whether BTS deserved a waiver, the group announced in October that every member will soon join.

According to the military, Jin, whose full name is Kim Seok-jin, will begin five weeks of training on Tuesday.

The Yeoncheon boot camp’s main gate is marked with a sign that reads, “A cradle for top class combat soldiers”, and hundreds of media representatives and BTS fans gathered there to await Jin’s anticipated arrival at 2:00 pm.

Fans say, ‘We have mixed feelings today’

A fan from Indonesia, Veronique said, “We have mixed feelings today because on one hand, it’s normal that he does this enlistment because it’s an obligation anyway for any Korean men.”

She said, “But on the other hand we cannot see him for a minimum of 18 months … Happy but also sad but also proud.”

According to local media rumours, Jin is anticipated to be deployed to a “frontline unit” following training because his boot camp is situated close to the border with North Korea, with whom the South is still technically at war.
