The four members of BTS will begin their mandatory military service in December.
Big Hit Music's statement read, "RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook will fulfill their required time with the military by enlisting in the army. RM and V will enlist according to their respective procedures."
Jimin and Jung Kook are scheduled to enlist together. The two will enter the recruit training center of the 5th Infantry Division, where Jin is serving as an assistant instructor.
"Please note that there will be no official event on the day of their entry," the statement added. "To prevent any issues that might occur from crowding, fans are advised to refrain from visiting the site."
The statement also warned, "We also advise you not to get adversely affected by purchasing unauthorized tours or product packages that illegally use the artist's IP. The company will take necessary action against any attempts at commercial activity making unauthorized use of such IP."
The statement concluded, "The company will also strive to provide all the support they need during this time." The label also asked for fans' continued love and support for RM, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook until they complete their military service and return.
Jin and J-Hope are ready to be discharged next year. BTS plans to reconvene as a group again around 2025 following their military service commitments.
