Fans are now reacting to the news that BTS's Jin will enlist on December 13. Though no one has yet confirmed the official enlistment date, the K-pop idol has already asked fans not to come to the military training center when he enlists.
Yesterday, news broke about the date, location, and other major details about Jin's enlistment. Though BTS's agency, BigHit Music, can't confirm the claims, fans are already planning what they will do next.
An AllKpop article showed the fans' reaction to the issue, with one saying she would be waiting for him there. Another claimed that it's good to "send him off" after his birthday on December 4.
Another said it was a shame that he didn't get exempted, while one asked why the military would reveal this private information about his enlistment.
Hence, Jin himself broke his silence about the matter. Though he didn't confirm the news either, he addressed the details about it. Twitter user @btstranslation7 translated the oldest BTS member's post on WeVerse, via Hindustan Times, saying there was an article out there that he didn't plan to be published.
"In any case, ARMYs, I ask that you please refrain from coming to the training center," he stated. The K-pop star knew there would be a lot of people there, and it could be dangerous to many being stuck in a big crowd, especially after the Itaewon tragedy last month. "Army, I love you," he ended his note.
Fans once again reacted to his post. One fan asked why Jin had to take care of "someone else's carelessness," referring to someone who had revealed his enlistment details. Another said he was mad at the military who leaked the private information, as the hitmaker evidently wanted to enlist privately.
With the unconfirmed announcement, there would surely be a lot of reporters, YouTubers, and fans at the military training when his enlistment day comes. So, one fan asked everyone not to go there, too.
News broke that unnamed military authorities revealed Jin would be deployed to the unit after five weeks of training at the boot camp. Industry representatives also claimed he would enter the recruitment training center in Yeoncheon County of Gyeonggi Province.
However, in a statement released after the news quickly spread like wildfire, BigHit said it's difficult to confirm the information and asked for everyone's understanding. Jin will be celebrating his 30th birthday on December 4, making him 31 in Korean culture, a time for him to start his enlistment.
