Big Hit Music Briefly Responds To Predictions Of BTS Enlisting Together In 2022
There is a possibility that BTS will carry out their mandatory military service all together at once.
On April 21, in an investigative report published by Leading Investment & Securites about HYBE, research analyst Yoo Sung Man wrote, “It is predicted that the BTS members will enlist in the military simultaneously before mid-2022. Considering the effect of the content that will be pre-produced ahead of their enlistments, the actual period of inactivity will be around one year.” Currently, the period of service for active-duty soldiers is one year and six months.
Last December, the Ministry of National Defense promulgated an amendment to the military service law that makes outstanding individuals working in the popular culture and arts industry eligible to defer their military enlistment. If it is confirmed that BTS is eligible for this law, the oldest member Jin will be able to postpone his enlistment until the end of 2022.
Following reports, a source from Big Hit Music stated to Xportsnews, “We have nothing to tell you besides what the artists have shared.”
